Basically, you have a free choice concerning the switch type, but for evon Smart Home, we only use pushbuttons. We recommend that you use pushbuttons with at least 2 to 4 pushbutton functions per unit (corresponding to a flush-mounted socket). Since evon Smart Home only switches 24V signals via the pushbuttons/ sensors, there are no particular requirements concerning current carrying ability.

In our example, we plan using the following switches:

  • 1x 2-way pushbutton at the entrance for the ceiling light, a double-click switches the dimmable reading lights and the ceiling light off.
  • 1x 4-way and 1x 2-way pushbutton next to the balcony door. Two pushbuttons each for the two window shades UP / DOWN, one for the external light and one for the ceiling light.
  • 2x 2-way pushbuttons, one of each side of the bed. 1 pushbutton for the dimmable light and 1 for the ceiling light.
  • 1x 2-way pushbutton behind the bed for special functions, this could normally be handled with a double-click or a long push and are only in our example to demonstrate the evon Smart Home digital module D1180.
