Thank you for that perfect explanation. I just found one difference(maybe) between the Eljo Trend zwave and the Merten.
 According to the doc I have for eljo connect they have
Eljo Trend
Eljo Trend Solid
Eljo M and
System Design

Also when reading the doc for Eljo it seems like the Eljo Trend switch or dimmer does not need any insert..only the M and system design needs one. ??? I think this Must be a typo and will contact their representative tomorrow.

However since I am building on an excisting New home(with alot of eljo trend switches) I wonder about this MER_507501 , if I locally switch the light on, will the Core know?


Best Regards
 Johan

I know. but there is a possibility with these hide behind devices also know as "puck" here in Sweden.

Swedish readers please read..
However I called schneider and was told this:

* The switching "puck" is cannot be locally controlled. so you're right harri. =)
* However, The Dimmer "puck" can be controlled locally when hiding it behind a trigger switch (you install a spring which makes it have only one position)

* Difference between Merten and the eljo trend series is that merten has more choices between what type of switch(now I mean the thing you press on not the actual switch not sure of the word..)

* When you buy a Eljo Trend dimmer you pay less and you dont have to buy two things.
Hari, let me know if you're intrested in prices. I really don't want to post it here.. But it's darn worth it..

I will now order a bunch of approx. 15pucks to start with and then carry on as I learn more and maybe get the finances right..This is going to be fun  :) I expect abit of struggle but lets see..
