2. What is the range of Powermesh devices?

The typical range of Bluetooth is 30 metres however every situation is different depending on your phone, obstructions, interference and environmental conditions. Powermesh is a ‘mesh’ network so all devices are talking to each other to repeat the signal. If you can control one Powermesh device, you can control all of them in the network.

If you install a Zimi Cloud Connect and connect to your Wi-Fi, you can control your Powermesh network anywhere in the world via the Internet.

Powermesh devices have automatic recovery from a power failure and are restored to their previous state, including any schedules that have been set.

Dimmable Light Switch = 16
Multi Purpose Switch = 8 for each button
Power Point = 16 for each side

5. Will automatic schedules happen without my phone?

Yes, schedules are stored directly on the Powermesh device and will run without Internet connectivity or your phone being within the Powermesh network.

6. What happens after a power outage?

Powermesh devices automatically recover after a power outage and schedules are not lost.

Mesh & Go is a quick and secure way to transfer a complete Powermesh network and all the device settings  to your  customer. To use this feature, you must register your electrical license details in ‘My Account’ within Zimi.

It may take up to 30 seconds to pair a Powermesh device with Zimi. If you’re having problems, please ensure your phone has bluetooth turned on and has the latest software installed.

If problems persist, try resetting your phone and the Powermesh device.

6. Can I have multiple Dimmable Light Switches control the same lights?

Yes, Powermesh dimmers support 1,2 and 3 way switching via a master / slave switch on the back of the unit. Once paired, the slave will become one with the master and control the lights in the same way. Please refer to the installation instructions for more detail.
