    Hi guys, any lightwaverf users on here?
    I just started using this system out of necessity and I'm really impressed despite some critics on the web. I had a situation where I had a live on a switch to a ceiling row but wanted to run Dimable downlights and a backlight led strip. If I used the wall switch to dim the downlights, it would kill the leds and I wanted to run them independently. This is where lightwaverf came in, I used their Dimable relay to run and dim the lights, their led strip module to run the leds aNd then removed the wall switch and connected it to be always live, removing the switch. I then stuck their mood switch over the wall switch which runs the two.
    Since then, I've put a few other lightwaverf wall switches and relays in and out of the house. So far, very pleased.
    Anyone else using them?

    I bought one of their dim low energy lights and PIR switch. Worked for 9 months and the bulb went. Unfortunately not user serviceable so I reverted to good old manual. Seems they've extended the range, I certainly didn't find it to be set up and forget at the time (repeated re-pairing) which I would like to think is a good feature of home automation. Perhaps I was an early adopter, which has hit me in the past...

    - low energy lights?? Not sure I have seen those in their range. They do switches but not lights that I've seen. Any links.
    Had mine up for 3 weeks now and no issues with pairing at all and to be honest don't see why I would as it just links thr remote to the unit - can't see how it would lose it without a true hard reset.
    No affiliation with them, just a happy customer....so far. I am buying more in the next few weeks.
