Battery powered wall switch


#1

Hi all,

At this moment I have several KlikAanKlikUit AWMT-003 modules behind my ons wall switches.
I’m looking for something similar but not on the 433Mhz. Like Z-wave or Zigbee.

I know Fibaro has the binary sensor, but it need a power supply instead of a battery.

Does anyone have a solution for me? :blush:

Thanks,

Pjotr

Xiaomi Aqara wall switches could be what you’re searching for…

I use Aeotec Wallmote, it is battery powered but you can charge via Micro USB. And you don’t need to charge often, every couple of months.


Not cheap, but works awesome with Homey!

Now your using a kaku behind your wall switch, and want it to replace it with a battery powerd switch? why dont replace it with a fibaro module behind your switch.

Ofcourse you could have another reasson why switching over to a battery powerd device

The current KaKu sensor AWMT-003 is already battery powered.
I want to use my own wall switches, and have no power cabling to my switches.
So I need to use something battery powered.

I thought, if KaKu can do this over the 433Mhz, maybe some other brands have a similar sensor but then on a more reliable protocol then 433Mhz.

Regards,

Pjotr

Then there are not many options for what i know, so probbely need to change the switches for zwave/zigbee

Yesterday I spoke to Rob from Robbshop, and he noticed that I might use a door alarm contact with external inputs.
I played with an BENEXT door contact.
Re-write the app for the Homey so I can trigger an light instead of a door alarm, and it seems to be working.
If anyone is interested in the code and the hardware solution, please send me a message.

Nice option @Pjotr_van_Mourik

Disadvantage of using a door sensor is that it always require a modified app / driver and that you only have a single trigger.

An alternative option is connecting the NEW version of the Aqara Wireless Mini Switch (2018) (WXKG11LM, productID remote.b1acn01) as explained in this topic.

Advantage of this option is that you can simply use the existing app and have the 1x, 2x click, key held, key released options (for this specific version, the older version has the 1x - 4x click options).
