Eco-DIM.10 - Smart LED Dimmer Module - Zigbee

Installation on the Ikea Tradfri hub:

We will also try to install this dimmer on the Ikea Tradfri Hub. The first step is to remove the old dimmer. Make sure you disconnect the power and unscrew the whole thing. Then install the Eco-DIM according to the supplied diagram. You can connect it with 2 or 3 wires, so you don't have to pull wires. Connect the switch directly and screw the whole thing shut. Finally, turn the power back on.

We now start the IKEA APP and go to "settings" and then to "manage lamps" and press the plus sign. The dimmer cannot be connected directly to the HUB, so this must be done via a remote control. We also include these.

We then supply the dimmer with power and reset it by pressing and holding the reset button for 10 seconds. The LED will light up red and then turn off. Now we press the reset button 4 times in a row. We now start the adding procedure (on the HUB) by clicking on Bulb and then on the Ikea remote control. After this, press and hold the button on the back of the remote control for 10 seconds.

The dimmer was found and I can operate it (on/off and dimming).

You get a dimmer and on/off switch.

As an example I would like to have the Eco-DIM switched on when the sun goes down and I am at home.
