Nano Dimmer

Make all your lights smart lights. Simply.

Nano Dimmer dramatically improves the lighting in your home. Our 3rd generation of invisible lighting controller outperforms all that has come before it. Dimming is smoother. Compatibility is broader. Lighting is faster and more responsive. Automation and intelligence have never been more powerful. And it comes in such a small size, that you’ll be amazed at just how much functionality we were able to craft inside.

Perfect lighting is a part of every truly smart home. Lighting that is responsive. That is always the right brightness. That is always on when you need it, and off when you don’t. But perfect lighting has never been easy.

Instead, perfect lighting has been too complicated to achieve. In the past, to automate your lights with Z-Wave you’ve had to worry about the type of wiring you have, whether your lighting is trailing or leading edge, and whether you’re using TRIACs or thyristors. Far too complicated. Get any of those wrong and your connected lighting would quickly become a connected headache.

No more. Nano Dimmer offers smart, connected lighting without any of the hassle.

Product Details 

Easy to install.

Nano Dimmer lets you add new and existing lights to your Z-Wave system. It makes your lights smarter. It makes them responsive. It gives you the ability to control them, schedule, dim them and brighten them.

All that control and intelligence comes from simply wiring Nano Dimmer behind an existing wall switch. 

The best wiring compatibility yet.

Light bulb compatibility used to be complex. Now it’s never been easier.

Powered by both its dedicated Lighting Engine and a dedicated 32-bit CPU, Nano Dimmer calculates lighting at unparalleled speeds. It calculates perfectly smooth dimming, and it calculates perfect bulb compatibility, self-adjusting its settings whenever a new bulb is attached.

That means that you won’t ever have a problem finding lights that works with Nano Dimmer’s list of compatible bulbs.




Dimmable LED









And that’s a list that’ll keep on growing. Lighting Engine can be upgraded, meaning that new compatibility calculations are only ever a firmware upgrade away.

Neutral not required.

Nano Dimmer isn’t just better at lighting compatibility, it’s better at wiring compatibility too.

Whether your lights are installed in a 2-wire or 3-wire system, Nano Dimmer is compatible. Lighting Engine auto-detects whether your light switches have a neutral wire or not, then automatically adjusts it settings.


Universal wiring compatibility

Works without neutral

Smooth dimming.

Dimming the lights in a room is beautiful. But it’s also extremely complicated and technical.

It takes what is known as phase control; the reduction of the amount of voltage a light bulb consumes along its trailing edge or leading edge.

Works with virtually any switch.

Nano Switch has been designed to enhance your home, not to completely change it.
That is why it is been designed to work with most of the light switches typically found in homes, new or old. It installs invisibly behind them, enhancing their functionality instead of completely replacing it.

Perfectly small.

To make an in-wall lighting controller this perfect means working from the ground up. But despite now being 60% smaller than the original technology, every single millimetre of Nano Switch benefits from Aeotec’s 10 year’s experience. That decade’s worth of expertise makes Nano Switch compact without compromise.

43.5mm x 39mm x 19.5 mm

Perfectly safe.

Your lighting may be perfect, but that doesn’t mean the electricity powering it is. Things happen. Surges happen and are common, and Nano Switch protects against them.
With a in-built surge and overload protector, Nano Switch not only keeps your lighting connected it keeps them protected.

Perfectly upgraded.
