reply 9 : did you save it and reload vera UI ?
reply 10 : doesnt make any difference
reply 11: wont make any difference.. load needs connected to fibaro on stated connectors

Yes I saved everything. I can make changes in that field. Maybe Vera don't accept it because your string (10,1d,255,13,1d,1,14,1d,1,16,1d,0,19,1d,1,20,1d,110,9,1d,255) is much more longer than mine (14,1d,1,20,1d,110,10,1d,1,13,1d,2)

If it is possible try attach the module to neutral. Otherwise a small current will go through the LED in order to keep the fibaro module running. If the LED is sensible it will start flashing even when light is turned "off".

 

You mean to create a 3 wire connection.. Yes maybe it will help. I have a power plug in the neighbourhood of the wall switch. I can tap a neutral wire from there. Ik will let you know next week!

perhaps search forum more and find out you do not connect the N and O when on 2-wire setup ?

Yes I was also suggested to setup a 3 wire connection instead of 2! I will try this next week. In case of a 3 wire connection, can I connect de bypass straight to the dimmer between the N and O?

its not the load as this is 25W per specs. it is probably connected between the on/off switch , not having a separate mains power on the fibaro does this. otherwise the load is not connected right. the load should be parallel to the light and not in series. between O and Sx.

At what point did you read 25W instead of the 5W quoted by the original poster?  The load is too small, no amount of parameters is going to change that.  Swap the LED with a halogen bulb and see the difference.

reply 12 : no, its a load not a bypass. between O and Sx...
reply 19 : at what  point you did not understand the practical reality of this stuff ?  load = 25W  light=5W there is nothing a halogenbulb will change this.

Hi all,

Thanks all for your support! I used the 3 wire setup including the bypass. No flickering anymore!

Cheers,

Jasper

3-wire is the best setup.

yup, 2-wire only gives troubles and undesired effects allthough its a nice feature.
