Fibaro Walli Controller


With this controller from the Fibaro you get a device with which you can easily start a scene. Remember that with 1 push of a button, your television, stereo and lamps are set in the right atmosphere if you want to watch a movie.

Or with pressing 2x to start a sleeping scene where all devices are turned off, the heating is lower and your door is locked.

With the scene controller you get the following "press options" to start a scene:

Top button:
Press 1x, 2x, 3x, hold and release

Bottom button:
Press 1x, 2x, 3x, hold and release

So many possibilities.

With this Walli Controller you don't have to pull any power wires because it works on a battery (1/2AA). According to Fibaro, the battery should last no less than 10 years if you press the button twice a day.

You can attach it anywhere with the included double-sided tape. Screwing is also possible thanks to the handy mounting frame.

This controller naturally also fits in with the other products of the Walli range and it is available in white and an anthracite color.

You can see that Fibaro already has some years of experience in making products, because this Walli Controller is well put together and does what it is supposed to do. Only pity is that it doesn't fully work on all controllers yet, but this will be a matter of time until this is resolved.

The only downside is that the button is a bit difficult to remove (to get to the batteries). This is of course not a show stopper because the battery lasts a very long time and you do not have to do this every day.

It is for sale for € 52.95 which is not the cheapest solution for him.


So: Are you looking for a simple way to start a scene? Then the Fibaro Walli Controller is your friend.
