Rated 1 out of 5 by from After 12 months forget it! Don't buy. After 12 months of trying to get the items to work, after reliably being told that the items purchased would work together and do what I wanted. They don't, totally unreliable, don't connect to control hub correctly when on the occassiosn they do they either switch on up to 40 minutes before it actually get dark, not dusk as the system suggests, or, won't switch off with the app as requied. Lightwave reply: Quote: "As you are using the connect series range here the devices may connect to the app but not work at all. This is due to the connect series devices not being status reporting so the Link Plus does not actually know if the devices are connected or not. They will however always add to the app so this means that you could add 50 sockets on the the app and the Link Plus would be non the wiser." So the advise I was given in the first place, by Lightwave, suggests was incorrect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great choice, Easy install Decided to try Lightwave to begin automating my house, this was easy to install along with a number of other light switches and inline relays. the app was a bit cumbersome to start with but once I had named and connected a few devices it became really usable. Was a simple step to control with Google..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from so far so good i first bought the smart sockets, little realising that a hub was required. (must read the small print) Anyway bought the hub, thought it was quite expensive compared to some and set it up. Easy and quick to set up. A good and strong connection between my smart phone and the devices (sockets) via the hub. So far so good, but too early to comment on reliability and performance

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will be awesome eventually I bought the hub along with a 1 gang dimmer switch. Easy enough to install and set up. It is however a two person job as on switching on the electricity you have 5 seconds to put an accessory into set up mode. Even in the smallest house thats quite a sprint. Instructions should you wish to have 2 way switching (on say a stairway) are not at all clear. This brings me onto my first real gripe with the lightwave system. Dimmed lights on a stairway are not a good idea for safety reasons but when i contacted them they have no plans for a non dimmable switch. Kitchen, utility room, outside lights would not normally be dimmed so thats a massive gap in the range leaving me with a mix of quite frankly beautiful Lightwave switches and something more pedestrian around the house. I had to inlude an incandescent bulb in the fitting to get my lights to work properly which uses more electricity than the other 4 LED lamps in the fitting put together! On a non dimable swich this wouldnt be a problem. My outside lights i could operate using a relay but (2nd gripe) they dont yet have a Generation 2 relay - really dragging thier heels launching Gen 2 products. So like i said in the title, the system will be awesome eventually, if they increase and put thought into their range. But they have to do it quickly as other brands are quickly becoming the McDonalds of the smart home (an inferior product but the household name that everyone goes to!)

Wifi/ethernet

Does this connect via Wifi or Ethernet to the router, is Ethernet essential or Wi-fi acceptable? TIA Andy
Asked by: m0bnd

Will this hub control generation 1 switches and sockets

Asked by: Mitt
Yes it’s backwards compatible but only provides the same functionality as a Gen 1 controller.
