I asked same thing on Vesternet and I got a negative response

My question

"What is the difference between the bi-stable and the contactor switch ? I need to switch a load of ~ 4k W (electrical water heater) which uses a double switch (live+neutral), which one suits better ? Do u have any feedback from Vera users that have managed to add them in their network (smart meter, contactor, bi-stable) ?"

The answer I received

"There is no difference between bi-stable and contactor switch. BICOM or IKA are only devices that are compatible with Smart Meter ? in your case you can use BICOM.
From our experience Smart Meter is not supported by Vera"



It is pitty though because their switches are the only capable for handling high loads (32A). It'd be nice for Vera to support them.

Hi,
I've bought this meter, but still haven't finished to configure it.
The difference between bistable switch and the contactor switch is the "memory" of the state. bi-stable switch remain in the same state even if the power source is disconnected. The BICOM432 is very interesting solution due to IR port controll, but you can use every relay or contactor switch with 230V control voltage and up to 3W power consumption rating.
