Wall Switch - Standard Dimmer
The WS1D Wall Switch Dimmer is a high quality home automation dimmer switch that is capable of transmitting and receiving digital commands and status over the existing powerlines. Designed to control incandescent, fluorescent, inductive, and magnetic low voltage devices.
Tapping its paddle style rocker switch will turn on and off the lights while holding it down will fade the lights up and down. Separate light levels (anywhere between 0% and 100%) can be chosen for single-tap and double-tap events. Sixteen different fade rates can be selected - from instant-on to one hour - to give you ultimate flexibility in controlling how fast the lights fade on or off. The dimmer function can also be disabled, turning it into a switch, to allow the WS1D to turn on and off non-dimmable loads such as fluorescent lights and motors.
Three-way (or multi-way) light switch functionality can be obtained by connecting one (or more) RWS "remote” switches (sold separately) to its yellow traveler wire.
Receives From the Powerline
The WS1D will accept powerline commands from any UPB-compatible transmitter such as the PulseWorx Keypad Controllers, Timed Event Controller, Interface Modules, Approved Third-Party Controllers, Touch Screens, and even other WS1Ds. Each WS1D can be a member of up to 16 Links/scenes with the capability to store a pre-set light level and fade rate for each scene. Each pre-set light level can easily be adjusted by the homeowner using the innovative PulseWorx manual programming method.
Transmits To the Powerline
The WS1D can also be configured as a two-button transmitter. Select from a list of commands to be transmitted when each rocker button (top or bottom) is tapped, held or released. This allows the WS1D to remotely control other devices or update indicators (LEDs on our keypads).
Easy To Configure
Like all PulseWorx devices, the WS1D can be initially configured using PCS's free UPStart Software setup tool. UPStart enables configuring such parameters as Network Name, Network ID, Unit ID, Room name, Device name, default on light levels, fade rates, LED colors, dimming disable, auto shut-off time, etc. As well as test the operation and communication strength of the device. UPStart has the option to configure an entire network off-line and then download the information into the devices after they are installed in the home.
PulseWorx Lighting Control System
The Wall Switch Dimmers are designed to be an integral part of a complete PulseWorx Lighting Control System. Like all PulseWorx devices, the WS1D uses the patented UPB(TM)
powerline communication technology (invented by PCS) to reliably communicate with any other UPB-compatible device(s) over the existing house electrical wires. No new wires are necessary making PulseWorx perfect for retrofit situations. When initial configuration is complete, a single push of a button is all you need to activate any group of lights (or virtually anything else that connects to AC power wiring) throughout the house simultaneously.
