Aeotec Nano Dimmer

$ 99.00 $ 95.00

83% smaller in size. 100% re-engineered. To create an upgrade this advanced, Aeotec had to start at the very beginning.

And that's what Aeotec has done with Aeotec Nano Dimmer, the next-gen lighting controller.

Aeotec Nano Dimmer retrofits to any switch to make it a smart one. Universally compatible with leading and trailing edge systems, and with all modern bulbs including dimmable LEDs, Aeotec Nano Dimmer continues to offer everything that Aeotec pioneered in retrofit lighting control: reliable power metering function, and an installation time of less than 5 minutes.

This is the perfect IoT device for controlling smart lighting and appliances.


Aeotec Nano Dimmer

Make all your lights smart lights.  Simply.

Aeotec Nano Dimmer

Aeotec Nano Dimmer dramatically improves the lighting in your home. This is Aeotec's 3rd generation of invisible lighting controller, it outperforms all that has come before it. Dimming is smoother. Compatibility is broader. Lighting is faster and more responsive. Automation and intelligence have never been more powerful. And it comes in such a small size, that you'll be amazed at just how much functionality Aeotec was able to craft inside.

Aeotec Nano Dimmer - Make all your lights smart lights.  Simply.


Perfect lighting is a part of every truly smart home. Lighting that is responsive. That is always the right brightness. That is always on when you need it, and off when you don't. But perfect lighting has never been easy.

Instead, perfect lighting has been too complicated to achieve. In the past, to automate your lights with Z-Wave you've had to worry about the type of wiring you have, whether your lighting is trailing or leading edge, and whether you're using TRIACs or thyristors. Far too complicated. Get any of those wrong and your connected lighting would quickly become a connected headache.

No more. Aeotec Nano Dimmer offers smart, connected lighting without any of the hassle.

Easy to install

Aeotec Nano Dimmer lets you add new and existing lights to your Z-Wave system. It makes your lights smarter. It makes them responsive. It gives you the ability to control them, schedule, dim them and brighten them.

All that control and intelligence comes from simply wiring Aeotec Nano Dimmer behind an existing wall switch.

Aeotec Nano Dimmer - Wiring

The best wiring compatibility yet

Light bulb compatibility used to be complex. Now it's never been easier.

Powered by both its dedicated Lighting Engine and a dedicated 32-bit CPU, Aeotec Nano Dimmer calculates lighting at unparalleled speeds. It calculates perfectly smooth dimming, and it calculates perfect bulb compatibility, self-adjusting its settings whenever a new bulb is attached.

That means that you won't ever have a problem finding lights that works with Aeotec Nano Dimmer's list of compatible bulbs.

Aeotec Nano Dimmer - The best wiring compatibility yet


And that's a list that'll keep on growing. Lighting Engine can be upgraded, meaning that new compatibility calculations are only ever a firmware upgrade away.

Neutral not required

Aeotec Nano Dimmer isn't just better at lighting compatibility, it's better at wiring compatibility too.

Whether your lights are installed in a 2-wire or 3-wire system, Aeotec Nano Dimmer is compatible. Lighting Engine auto-detects whether your light switches have a neutral wire or not, then automatically adjusts it settings.

Works with your existing light switch

Aeotec Nano Dimmer has been designed to enhance your home, not to completely change it.

That is why it is been designed to work with most of the light switches typically found in homes, new or old. It installs invisibly behind them, enhancing their functionality instead of completely replacing it. Aeotec Nano Dimmer can be connected to the following light switches.

Works without any switch at all

When you enhance your lighting with Aeotec Nano Dimmer, you do so with the connectivity of Z-Wave Plus. Connectivity that lets you intelligently automate it, connectivity that lets you responsively control it, and connectivity that lets you manage and monitor it even when you're not home.

Smooth dimming

You don't need to know any of that, because Aeotec Nano Dimmer makes smart lighting simple. It simplifies the wiring, and it simplifies the dimming.  Aeotec Nano Dimmer is compatible with both leading edge and trailing edge.


And because smooth dimming is the definition of beautiful lighting, Aeotec Nano Dimmer does it perfectly.

Whatever amount of light you need, Aeotec Nano Dimmer delivers. It can dim your lights from between 0% and 100%.  And it can dim them at perfect speed with Aeotec Nano Dimmer offering an adjustable ramp rate allowing the brightness of your lights to adjust over moments or minutes.

Perfectly small

The first Z-Wave in-wall dimmer? That was from Aeotec. Aeotec started engineering it in 2006 and then they followed up with the best-selling Micro Dimmer 2E. Now they're replacing it with the all new Nano range.

To make an in-wall lighting controller this perfect means working from the ground up. But despite now being 60% smaller than their original technology, every single millimetre of Aeotec Nano Dimmer benefits from Aeotec's 10 year experience in making in-wall dimmers. That decade's worth of expertise makes Aeotec Nano Dimmer compact without compromise.

Perfectly safe

Your lighting may be perfect, but that doesn't mean the electricity powering it is. Things happen. Surges happen and are common, and Aeotec Nano Dimmer protects against them. With an in-built surge and overload protector, Aeotec Nano Dimmer not only keeps your lighting connected it keeps them protected.
