Poe router fans all replaced ( still noisy but better ) . Mac with Z wave stick .

One Qubino din rail dimmer installed ( by electrician! ) linked to one bath room led ceiling light , triggered by aeotec sensor 6 I.e movement put lights on with timer .

I’ll periodically update this thread as I add new goodies !

Does that mean you can adjust the brightness while in that bath?

 

If  yes, is it done via a remote control or a phone.

If no, what is the point.

Yes 

via phone or iPad wall mounted in bathroom or indeed off other ‘inputs’ ...

Isn't it all over the top for a bathroom light, room that each individual probably only uses for 4% of their year.

The old saying 'Why does a dog lick its own * ? Because it can." springs to mind :)

Electronic lock tested ! Nearly wet my pants with excitement!!

Am I the only one not seeing a video here?  Just the slider and white space above it?

 

P.S I was hoping to see a picture of the bridge, and what it bridges over?

You have to click on it and it downloads taking up valuable storage space on your device! 😂

I click the play button and the sound plays, but no video.

 

If i right click, I get options like "play audio", "copy audio location", "email audio"  So my computer thinks it's an audio clip not a video clip.

 

Latest version of firefox.

Chrome here. I can see the video but no sound. Using VLC.

 

EDIT: I just turned the sound up. I think @pocster is molesting a cow in there...

I give up.

Right clicking and "save audio as" gives me a 23mB .MOV file.  I open that with "movie player" and I see a static picture of a door. Nothing moves but there is some sound.

 

Still no bridge. :ph34r:

After watching that many weird WhatsApp clips I was half expecting that zombie woman to burst through the door or the big guy with the large trouser snake standing there.

VLC is the kiddie. PC, Android, Linux.

 

Quicktime was the old goto for .MOV files.

Yeah it’s not the most exciting video - but I was happy . Not strictly ‘ The bridge’ - but will interface to it later .

More goodies tomorrow!!

Tried VLC.  Still a picture of a door with nothing moving.

To be fair nothing happens until 14 seconds in and even then you have to look carefully to see anything. The sound is what makes it if you can get past the farm animal in pain.

So what is the point of quieter fans if you are installing a din rail?
