Thanks to the radio controls, the network can be modified, the switches moved and the electrical installation reorganized without intervention on the board or bled.
Radio transmission control modules consist of transmitters and receivers. The transmitter is a wireless, battery operated switch that can be placed anywhere. The receiver is a module that slides into the recess of an existing switch or the light point to which it is connected. Convenient to modify the existing network, this type of equipment can be used for aesthetic purposes. If you want, for example, to place a switch on an exposed stone wall without digging an unsightly trench, simply insert a receiver module into the ceiling recess and a wireless switch on the wall. transmitter.
Associate transmitter and receiver
Transmitters and receivers of the same brand and using the same protocol, that is to say the same language, recognize each other. When your devices are connected, you must associate them, ie tell the receiver which transmitter is controlling it. From one brand to another, the principle remains the same: make a series of pulses on one or hold two keys pressed until the other flashes.
Add a back and forth
Behind the existing switch, find the live wire (red) that goes through the switch and the neutral wire (blue) that goes directly to the controlled luminaire.
Disconnect the switch
Disconnect the switch then connect the radio module instead, respecting the locations that vary according to the marks.
Connect the wires
Connect the yellow and white wires of the radio module to the switch; their location is not important since the switch is a simple circuit breaker.
Associate transmitter and receiver and reassemble
Realize the association of the transmitter with its receiver then slide the module into the recess and reassemble the switch.
Set the switch
Place the additional switch within 100 m.
He is not connected to any wire and issues his orders by radio waves.

Add a control point on a back and forth
The case arises when one wishes to modify the location of a bed for example. Or if you want to control the lighting of the room from both sides of the bed.
EXISTING - Place radio transmitting modules in the existing switches.
Add a radio transmitter switch on the other side of the bed.
PROJECT - In the luminaire, install a radio module.
This one will no longer be connected to the two original switches but it will receive the "on / off" commands of the three transmitter modules.
Divide a circuit in two
This is particularly the case when one wishes to divide a room in two, to arrange attics for example or to create an additional room, using a corner of the living room.
EXISTING - In the existing switch, place a radio transmitter and install a receiver in the luminaire to be controlled.
Add a wireless transmitter switch next to the door and its receiver in the other fixture.
PROJECT - When associating transmitters and receivers two control circuits are distinguished.
The luminaires are powered by the same electrical circuit but they are controlled by different switches.
Driving without moving
By multiplying these devices on all the lighting and control systems, all the controls of the room (luminaire, outlets, shutters...) are assembled.
This solution has the great advantage of using all existing switches; it is therefore possible to continue to control his room as before, without change. But there is also a unique remote control that directs all the equipment.
Make sure to always choose the same brand (here Delta Dore products) or equipment that uses the same language (protocol) and can communicate with each other.
The control of the electrical networks can concern the implementation of solutions to control and automate the closing and the opening of the shutters.
For many people, opening and closing roller shutters, even motorized, remains a chore. However, simple radio module equipment can open or close shutters throughout the home with a single command. These are radio receiver modules to be installed behind each shutter control.
The radio transmitter module (wireless) takes the appearance of a classic control and is fixed wherever you want (usually in the input). This switch orders the opening or closing of all the shutters of the house, but each one can open and close independently from the others since its original order. In the morning, everyone in his room can open his shutter. But when leaving the house, it is possible to close all without having to go around all the rooms.
Disassemble the shutter control.
Identify at the back, the phase (black), the return phase up / down (purple and brown), and the neutral (blue).
Identify the threads and the function they represent
Once the wires and their functions have been identified, disconnect them and connect them to the receiver module.
Observe the connection instructions.
Connect the radio receiver to the shutter control
There are three wires to connect as in the original branch.
Perform the necessary synchronization operations to associate the receiver with its transmitter, then insert the transmitter in the recess.
Reassemble the switch
It remains only to reassemble the switch. Do the same for the controls of all the shutters that you want to centralize (up to 16 at Delta Dore).
Set the switch
Place the general control transmitter switch where you want it.
It runs on battery, no need to connect it to a power supply.
Secure the surroundings of the house
Video doorkeepers can identify visitors before letting them in. Added to this is a much more complete automation and home and garden monitoring service: outdoor camera, presence detector, alarm. Some also make it possible to control the motorization of the gate or the external lighting.
