Nexa wireless switches

Nexa wireless switches

A couple of days ago I happened by that Swedish chain with random things for around the house mentioned previously again and saw that they had Nexa wireless switches on sale (more..).

Naturally I had to try them!

They are pretty smart, and starts to auto learn the moment you plug them in. Setup with the Tellstick was a breeze, just add the switch as a protocol arctech self learning switch, give it a house number between 1 and 6710883 and a unit number. And off you go!

I have just added the first of the three so I can’t really comment on the reliability but expectations are high.

These have three memory locations, so perfect for tellstick plus remote and future fun.

Mine is a batch 10 of the original TS001 with internal antenna.
The new antenna is 164mm from the soldering point to the end. Google a bit and you will find both the math for this and lots of howtos.

As usual, click the images to blow them up a bit.
