Dear velbus users,
I’ve made my homework about Velbus. I do think it is a nice system price/quality/features.
The price can furthemore be pressed down by using k8064 dimmers.
I currently have (old type) low voltage controlled telerupters.
I would like to keep my future domotic automation project simple, separated in modules.
That is : central heating with brand specific modulating thermostat / central alarm / home cinema / … all seperatly, but interfaced with some binary VELBUS in/outs and manual IR remote.
(switch off lights when arming alarm, place heating in night mode, etc)
I believe Velbus is perfect for this.
I would like to ask advice about some things :
Pïty that RGB is only half supported. DMX would have been nice.
The way i interpret it know. It seems like we have to use 4 buttons for a RGB armature.
And maybe one more or 4 more for the next one. (1 if you will use same colors)
That is 3 buttons for color mix, 1 for easy switch on/off.
No auto color mix or overall dimming.
Anyone found a better way for this ?
Homecenter looks like all i need and sharp designed.
Is it also like that to use ?
Can we use our own IP camera’s, or is it a must to buy the Stijnen Solutions CCTV to IP server box ?
Any competetive alternatives ?
Is a digital twilight sensor working satisfactory ?
How to put this ‘in series’ with an other initiator to trigger a light ON action f.e.
Where there are a lot of buttons, i would use a vmb8pbu modul behind each cover plate.
That will be in living room and such. With feed back LEDs.
For small areas, less buttons, i would use SVV cables running to a vmb8pbu in the switch box. Also with feed back LEDs at each button.
(Will require some extra hobby time fabricating DIN rail supports for the k8064 dimmers and vmb8pbu)
Am i overlooking something what might cause interference ?
