Some homeowner electrical knowledge is required as you need to switch off your electrics and replace your current light switch. Easy to follow instructions are included, however, if you are in doubt, you should consult a qualified electrician. Once installed, setup is a breeze with help from the LightwaveRF App.
I am a massive home automation enthusiast. I have replaced all of my ground floor switches with these, and plan to replace all the first floor switches with more of the same in the near future.
Setup was painless, I just followed the 4 steps in the poster it arrives with.
