It was time to open the guts of yet another device. At first I did not find a way in, but finally I found a way to get in. I first removed the sticker on the inside of the plug. Under it there was a brass plug which I milled away with a Dremel. I have the F-type which is suitable for the Dutch power outlets. In Belgium and France they have the E-type which has an extra pin for providing the connection to earth.

Some specs:

  • ZWave, ZWave+/ZWave plus
  • Max load 2500 Watt resistive load (continuous) to 3000 Watt (peak)
  • Consumes up to 1.6 Watt
  • Z-Wave device type: On/Off Power Switch (no dimming)
  • Z-Wave role type: Always On Slave
  • RGB LED ring
  • IP20
  • Extremely compact build
  • CEE 7/16 – max load 2.5 A
  • CEE 7/17 – max load 11A
  • Type: FGWPE/F-102 ZW5
  • Shuko type F or French type E
  • Protection against short cirquit
  • Built in thermal sensor
  • Built in network range tester
  • Z-Wave hardware platform: ZM5202
  • Z-Wave frequency: CEPT (Europe) 868.4 MHz, 869.85 MHz

Switching is done with a classic relay, so dimming a device is not possible. A bit disappointing for that price ;-(
