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.
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.
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 with neutral
Works without neutral
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 Dimmer dramatically improves the lighting in your home. Aeotec’s 3rd generation of invisible lighting controller outperforms all that has come before it.
New lights, no problems.
Keep Nano Dimmer compatible and Lighting Engine up to date; Nano Dimmer’s firmware can be updated wirelessly (Over-the-Air).
Your lighting should be responsive. Nano Dimmer responds in milliseconds – 250% quicker than previous models.
Nano Dimmer is built upon Aeotec’s leading Gen5 technology and is powered by the latest version of Z-Wave — Z-Wave Plus.
No gateway, no worries.
With its auto timers and settings, Nano Dimmer can still be automated and controlled when your gateway is down.
Perfect dimming needs precision. Nano Dimmer can be dimmed at 1% increments from 0% right through to 100% brightness.
Nano Dimmer offers a customisable ramp rate so that it can dim or brighten as fast or as smooth as you want it to.
Control your lights and control your ceiling fans. Nano Dimmer can be wired to turn select ceiling fans as powerful as 100 watts on and off, and control their speeds.
Homes have unique lighting and switches. From bulb type to switch type to wiring type to load type, Lighting Engine powers Nano Dimmer’s class-leading dimming compatibility.
Small in size without compromise. Nano Dimmer can control lights and loads that draw up to 1.5 amps of power.
Connected lighting has to work. It’s that simple. Nano Dimmer offers a leading 150 metre point-to-point wireless range for flawless wireless performance.
Packed with technology but not bloated in size, Nano Dimmer’s slim shell of just 20mm fits easily behind your homes existing wall switches.
See your spend.
Along with dimming control, Nano Dimmer includes Aeotec’s energy metering technology for an accurate measurement of how much electricity your lights are using.
A wireless signal that goes further, stronger. Nano Dimmer’s improved wireless technology is perfect for pass through walls now that it’s 2.5dBM stronger.
DIN rail compatible.
Want to use it with a DIN rail? Pair Nano Dimmer with a generic DIN housing or module box for DIN rail compatibility and use.
Because it’s built upon Z-Wave Gen5, Nano Dimmer features banking grade, AES-128 bit encryption to protect the Z-Wave wireless communication.
