Features

Our best seller and fan favorite, the Red Series Dimmer puts all other switches to shame with Scene Control, LED Notifications, No-Neutral Wire Required, Multi-Way Setup and so much more.

  • Scene Control

    Control up to 15 separate scenes. The up & down button support (1x tap, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, hold & release). Pressing the config button, a single time is also a scene. (Check compatible hubs list below for supported advanced features) 

  • LED Notifications

    Have the LED Bar change colors or chase, flash, blink, pulse, etc. to notify you of changes going on in your home. For example, the garage door being left open, the security system being armed, the weather outside starting to rain, or even a text message. The possibilities are endless here. (Check compatible hubs list below for supported advanced features) 

  • Easy Configuration

    We have created a method for customers to be able to change the devices configuration parameters directly by using the 3 buttons on the device itself. Great for hubs that do not let you edit the configuration options from their app.

  • Multi-Way Setup

    The switch provides several options for configuring a 3, 4-way circuit. You can choose from a dumb switch, an aux switch, or even another Inovelli Z-Wave switch (through direct association).

  • No Neutral and Neutral Wiring Compatible

    A perfect solution for older homes that may not have a neutral wire. In some cases, no-neutral setups under 25W will require a bypass (sold seperately).

    Best Smart Switches 2021! and Best Support to go with it!

    Posted by Bryan on Jan 10th 2021

    Like almost everyone I have a couple of different brands of smart light switches (8 total) installed to see what worked best for me. Hands down inovelli is the BEST! Just ordered 20 more inovelli red dimmer switches. can't wait. The good, No Neutral wire required! YES it is true (may limit some features like power meter without neutral) Who doesn't have at least a couple rogue switches without neutral? Great looking switches. Full of features (Far more than any other switch / we are talking in the menu). Power meter (Maybe more of a novelty but with solar I try to keep track of power use) Works great with SmartThings, Hubitat and just about everything out. Color light bar looks and works great. (Just tell google to make the light red and bar changes to red or any color of the day you want. In fact you could use it as a secret code for just about anything). Or it can be set to tell you your kid opened there bedroom door in the middle of the night, your bedroom light switch would not wake up anyone but you know what is going on out of the corner of your eye from bed without even getting up (if you have a sensor installed on the door). Options are all over in the smart home with inovelli. I have had a disconnection problems with a Zooz switch and a Leviton switch but inovelli worked perfectly in my 2 months of trials before deciding on switches for the entire house. If you have questions go on the inovelli forum and most things are already covered but if you do need to ask a question you get answers within a day or two with real answers, unlike Microsoft or Google who don't answer your question but just give you the run around with something that is correct but does not help in any way. You know what I mean we have all been there. Now for my only down side: I was having problems getting 2 inovelli switches on my metal boxes with metal plates. This may have just been the maker of my metal boxes put in my house in 2016 but I was able to make some modifications to make it work. One inovelli will fit with a dumb switch no problem. But if you have plastic boxes or older metal boxes you most likely will not have this issue. Give 2 of them a try before you buy switches for the whole house or have a file on hand, hint. FYI the Zooz switches have the same corner problem too. Leviton did not have that issue. Inovelli is my switch of choice for the entire house. And yes I wound recommend to anyone and everyone putting in smart switches.

    Just WOW

    Posted by Jonathan on Dec 9th 2020

    Have every switch in the house replaced with a few brands off smart switch. Other than the GE motion switches with built in motion detection, I wish EVERY switch was this Inovelli. Easy to pair, easy to customize, and the absolute KILLER feature is that LED light. I have programmed it to be a different color depending on circumstances. If the garage door is open past 11PM, blink RED. If the alarm is active, make it red. If there are basement lights on past 11PM, flash white. So many options for this awesome device. Thanks Inovelli!!

    Excellent Features and Workmanship

    Posted by Thomas Carpe on Nov 24th 2020

    I purchased the Red Series Z-Wave after searching high and low for a smart dimmer switch that could be installed without a neutral wire. We have hundred-year-old knob and tube wiring in some fixtures and this was the only way to go. Although some of the old docs/images on Amazon say that this switch doesn't support neutral-less wiring, the newest version absolutely does. (Note that you will still need to by a "bypass" if you have LED lights, but these are cheap and easy to install. Bypass is a tiny little doo-dad you wire in parallel at the light fixture, to pull just enough voltage to stop dimmer-flicker and power the smart switch.) Make sure you buy the Red Series (not the Black Series) if you need neutral-less wiring. I was a bit nervous buying these at first, because I am new to Inovelli and the Amazon store was out of stock. I thought for sure their website was telling me tall tales about product in stock - especially under COVID. To my surprise and delight, my switches shipped within a day or two of ordering them and arrived shortly thereafter. Their support have been helpful in explaining when out of stock products will be available, and I appreciate that too. The hardware appears to be well constructed and durable. I had no issues playing rough with it as I had to shove a lot of wiring/nuts back into a crowded box. Even the screws that provided are clearly made of a superior alloy compared to some that I have seen which will strip when you look at them sideways. There's not a single worry in my mind about it catching fire or anything like that. First rate, all around. It will fit "exactly" in the space of a small, outdated, "Dumbo"/"Mickey Mouse" box that you will often find in houses with plaster and lathe walls like mine - just be careful when you wrap it in tape not to use too much! Note that if there's a ground clip on the wall of such a box, the Inovelli switch will not fit with it there; you will have to find another way to connect your ground wire. As a possible suggestion, if the product team makes a version 3 you could possible find a way to make it just 1-2 mm more narrow from side to side so that it can accommodate any ground clips, that'd be amazing and I bet a lot of pro-electrician will sing your praises. I haven't tried it in a 3/4-way configuration, but it has the same hookups you would expect from a switch light the GE Embrighten, and is designed to work with their low-voltage add-on switch. Make sure you are careful about adding it to existing "dumb" 3 way configuration, because I'm not 100% sure but I think this may be a good way to fry your fancy new smart switch. Once installed, the switch can detect immediately whether it is in the no-neutral configuration. This was a surprise, because there are steps in the quick install guide that you can effectively skip (or just go through the motions like I did to be sure). It took me a little time to wrap my head around the configuration menu, which is handled entirely through color-blink codes. While feeling a bit like Morse code, I did eventually start to understand it. My recommendation would be to go to the website and print a copy of the color-blink-code cheat sheet on Inovelli's web site, because if you are trying to read it on your smart phone you will be in for a rough ride. Maybe they could revise the page to use a more responsive design, because the table doesn't shrink well. Anyway, if you have a paper copy you will be fine. I was impressed by how many different features are configurable on the device. Probably the first thing I did out of the box was to change the time for the dimmer, because the default is so fast that it is basically an on-off switch. 2 to 4 seconds is a better option if you actually want to use this switch as a dimmer, where the default is 0. Perhaps they will change the default in a future version. The next thing I did was the change the brightness and the color of the LED indicator. In my case this was installed in a bedroom, so a bright blue light was a poor fit. The brightness was pretty easy to adjust. The color took me some experimentation, because the docs seem to indicate that you can set it to any 0-255 Hue code, but the truth is that you just cycle through about a dozen predetermined codes along the spectrum. As a result, I couldn't quite get the color I wanted (orange) but I got red and that was close enough for me. Connecting to z-wave was one of the biggest challenges that I faced. We have a large house and my smart hub was a few rooms away. The self-test built into the unit indicated that it was out of range for z-wave. So, I ended up having to unplug my hub and move it to an adjacent room. Once I did this, I was able to pair the device and it wasn't difficult. The instructions for Wink were a bit strange since there's no native support for Inovelli products on their app - add the device as a "generic smart bulb" and when the time comes to pair it you hold the button down until it lights up green (and then yellow, I think). Anyway, the process worked and the device paired without further problems. Once you have the switch paired, you can safely put your smart hub back in your favorite location, and the switch will get commands from the nearest neighbor on the z-wave mesh network. Since I had two devices to pair, I just left it on the dining room table for a couple days while I did my upgrades. No biggie! All around, I was pretty impressed with the Inovelli Red Series. It is well built and packed with features you won't find elsewhere. In the past, we have usually purchased GE dimmers, but I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse now because the Inovelli was priced competitively vs. the GE Smart Dimmer. The two products are very closely matched in terms of capabilities. There are a few things that give Inovelli's product the edge: GE does not have a no-neutral option; the GE display LED is not configurable by color and GE's dimmer timing can't be changed; likely there are more hidden perks I am not aware of or didn't need. The GE design is a bit more compact, which is good in a crowded box, and their v2 doesn't have the heat-sink flanges, which can sometimes get in the way and have to be removed in a double-gang installation. Considering those differences, I would suggest you take a serious look at the Red Series for all your smart dimmers on your smart home upgrade project. I'm definitely going with Inovelli for my next upgrade, which will be for all the ceiling fans in the house. It will be well worth the wait for product to be in stock.

    Best Z-Wave Dimmers Available

    Posted by LP on Nov 21st 2020

    These dimmers are the most widely-compatible and feature-packed dimmers on the market at the time of writing (late 2020). Installation was a breeze and the switches have just enough customization that you're able to do whatever you want, without having too much that you're overwhelmed by configuration. The default settings on the switches are great and will work fine until you've got more set up.

    great product, mostly happy

    Posted by Skyler on Nov 17th 2020

    These switches look great especially with screwless faceplates. In my research these switches provide the most functionality and is one of the better looking switches at this price point. The only reason for a subtracted star is because there's a latency in some of my switches of 1 or more seconds. that sounds insignificant but if I'm grabbing something out of a room I can walk in, grab the item, and be on my way out before the light turns on. I also experienced friction while setting these up with home assistant but they updated documentation to include some steps that were missing. props to them

    Happy on Hubitat

    Posted by TAP on Nov 14th 2020

    Just got my first dimmer to access. Was using another popular two letter brand that worked just fine but lacked scene controls and energy monitoring. I installed these and paired them with Hubitat without reading the fine print in the instructions. They connected and I was able to turn them on and off in the "Device" page but soon discovered that I couldn't set up tiles to se them. After cussing a little bit, I read the instructions and saw that I needed to get the driver off of Github. Once I did that, they worked amazingly well. I dropped one star off because I have no idea why they would pair and use a build in driver that actually had Inovelli in the name. If it had loaded a generic driver, I might have figured it out quickly. Seriously, this is a five star dimmer if I had not stumbled (admittedly my fault for not reading) on the driver issue. Now that I have it all installed, I will be playing with the endless configurations possible. I have never seen a driver with as many options as these switches. It will take me a while to dream up all the new things I can do with a wall dimmer. Well done Innovelli! Glad you survived the vendor change disaster. Your products are by far the best I have seen in the home automation world so far.

    Functional and beatiful

    Posted by David on Oct 29th 2020

    Love these switched. Slowly replacing all my light switches with these. Just be careful with them. A short circuit at the light will fry them, not blow your breaker.
