Lamps aren’t just decorations in the home; they’re a functional and frequent part of the day. Used to avoid flooding a room with ceiling lights. Used to read by. Used as the backdrop for a movie. The lamps we have and how we use them are as personal and individual as the décor they’re a part of.
Smart Dimmer 6 has been crafted to subtly modernise the lamps in your home, making them smarter.
It’s not enough to fill a room with light, it has to be filled with the right light. Sometime that’s full light to read by, often its dim light to watch a movie by. Smart Dimmer 6 lets you pick the right brightness, for the right mood, and achieve perfect lighting.
There are particular times of day that lighting should be turned on. Smart Dimmer 6 lets you schedule the time your lamps should turn on, and just how bright or dim they should be.
Go beyond the schedule and wirelessly control Smart Dimmer 6 on demand. Powered by Z-Wave, you can dim and control lamps via remote control or a smart phone.
Scheduling enables lamps to be turned on only when needed, and Smart Dimmer 6’s energy monitoring technology lets you understand exactly how much money the lights plugged into it are costing you to run.
There are a lot of different light bulbs available to buy these days. Smart Dimmer 6 has been engineered to be compatible with as many as possible, from traditional incandescent bulbs to energy-saving halogen bulbs with or without transformers. Smart Dimmer 6 is also compatible with dimmable LED bulbs that use traditional, TRIAC dimming.
Whatever the time of day, whether you’re reading a novel in the early hours of the morning or watching a blockbuster late into the evening, Smart Dimmer 6 offers perfect lamp light for every moment.
You’ll be able to dim or brighten Smart Dimmer 6 to the perfect level via a hub, app, remote control, or directly from its own control button. Smart Dimmer 6 can brighten and dim your lamp light from 0% to 100% and back again.
Smart Dimmer 6 has been crafted for Australia, the EU (Type E/F only), New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
So that you still have full control of your lamps, Smart Dimmer 6 features a touch button built into its fascia that powers full on/off and bright/dim control.
Through 16 million colours, Smart Dimmer 6’s LED ring lets you know how much, or how little, you’re spending.
Light control gets easier with Smart Dimmer 6, so does smartphone charging. It features a discrete USB charger on the side.
Smart Dimmer 6 is precision engineered to be just the right size for each country. With safety and quality at the fore, it’s been made small enough to not block neighbouring power outlets but large enough to comply with safety regulations.

Smart Dimmer 6 benefits from nearly a decade’s worth of Aeotec’s engineering know-how. But to build the perfect successor to our original Smart Dimmer, we had to start our reengineering it from the ground up, each component at a time.
Designing the Smart Dimmer 6 wasn’t simply about making improvements, it was about reimaging what the modern home truly needed from a its lamps.
The home isn’t just where the heart is, it’s where your family should be safest. In the regions where electrical standards allow, Smart Dimmer 6 prevents objects from being inserted into it via its inbuilt dimmer protection.
Smart Dimmer 6 can power devices that draw up to 2.5 amps of power. But safety comes first, so a different Smart Dimmer 6 has been engineered for every country it’s available in, ensuring that it’s never overpowered and never unsafe.
Your smart Dimmer will keep getting smarter thanks to Aeotec’s over-the-airfirmware updates. Whenever new firmware is released, you’ll be able to update Smart Dimmer 6 wirelessly.
Your loved ones are protected and so are your valuables. Smart Dimmer 6 features inbuilt surge and overcurrent protection helping to prevent your electronics from ever being damaged.
Anyone can install Smart Dimmer 6. Plug it into a wall outlet and press the action button on the front. Everything else is handled by your Z-Wave hub.
Wireless doesn’t mean weak. Smart Dimmer 6 can communicate with other Z-Wave devices at distances up to 120 metres / 394 feet.
Smart Dimmer 6 has the newest version of Z-Wave built right in. It’s a better version of Z-Wave than you’ll find in our first Smart Dimmer and in competing products. It uses the latest chips and firmware for cutting-edge performance.
