Inovelli Z-Wave Switch Review

Z-Wave

Inovelli now provides Z-Wave light switches for your home automation projects!  Their switches are an attractive solution for your automated light switching needs in they do not require that you purchase a 'companion' switch for three-way lighting applications.  You can use the existing switch for the companion.  Since the switch costs around $30 this is an attractive choice that our forum members should consider.
 
 
 
I ordered the switch on Amazon and selected the dimmable, non-scene one.  They also offer dimmable, scene-capable as well as plain on-off types.  They are available in paddle or (older style) rocker selections.
 
The package contained the switch, an almond colored face-plate/trim, a neutral wire jumper, and a real set of instructions.

Does anyone know if these support instant status and can control other zwave devices with multiple taps?

 

I just did a test with HomeSeer (running on a HomeTroller Zee S2).

 

I looked at the status of the device and turned the switch on and off manually.  The status updated correctly in under a second.

 

I also did a test event that turned off another light when the Inovelli device "Changed and turned to ON".  When I turned the Inovelli switch on manually, the event did indeed trigger.

 

As far as controlling with 'multiple taps', the switch I ordered for this review did not support that BUT, I recently ordered three more that advertised this feature and I'll be testing that switch hopefully in the next week or two.

Excellent. Thank you for doing that.  I am looking at all new Gen 5 switches to replace the various ACT and GE switches and these seem comparable to the Homeseer ones.

The automation bug bites again!
