I’ve got quite a lot of series 1 Lightwave RF Kit including a bunch of plug-in dimmers. Of about the 10 that I have, 3 of them have developed a strange fault. I can seem to program them using a remote, and the remote than works once (switching the light on) and then off again, but once they are off, I can’t get them to go on again. The orange LED is showing. Then if I try to re-pair the remote, I get the flashing blue light, but nothing happens when I pair the remote. If I do a hard reset (the purple flashing mode), I can re-pair them and the problem starts over again.
I’ve tried different remotes (a remote, a mood switch, and linking to a hub), and new batteries in the remote, but none of them help. I’ve swapped them out for a different known-working dimmer socket, and it works fine. I’m using 60w incandescent bulbs.
Any idea what this is? It seems very odd to me.
Thanks in advance…
Hi, I know this was a while ago but did you ever get a resolution? I have the same issue. If I manually switch the socket on, then after that I can control it remotely, but about 10 seconds after I turn it off I lose the ability to control it again. I’ve got about 10 sockets doing this now and only 2 working.
No – sorry. I’m starting to give up on lightwaveRF, despite having spent quite a lot on the kit. I’m finding Hue a lot more reliable (albeit not so versatile).
