Thread: Control plug-in module with dimmer switch

  1. #1

    Control plug-in module with dimmer switch

    I've just added a plug-in module (RR-3PD-1) to one of my rooms. Is there any way to control it via an existing dimmer (RRD-6D) that's already controlling a ceiling fixture? If possible, I'd like the dimmer to control both the ceiling fixture and plug-in module together. I can't seem to find a way of doing this in the programming software. Hopefully I'm overlooking something.

    No. The buttons on the front of the dimmer will only control the attached load. There is no way to use those buttons to control anything else. RadioRA 2 does not have any programming function that would allow you to say if the dimmer is on, turn the lamp on.

    You could use a Pico and assign both devices to it.

    Thanks Randy. I was afraid of that. I'll probably go the pico route.

    You could also use a 3rd party controller like a Hubitat hub to mirror device states. There would be a slight delay as compared to a Pico, but not much.
