Heavy Duty Smart Switch is built upon Aeotec’s smart switch technology. Just like Aeotec's other smart switches, it can be automated, manually controlled, and remotely monitored. Just like the lower power smart switches, it is imbued with Aeotec’s reliable and accurate power-consumption monitoring technology.

If it’s big, if it uses a lot of power, Heavy Duty Smart Switch was made for it.


Electronics that use up to 40 amps of power. They’re the big electronics and appliances in your home. Big fridges and pool pumps. Hot water systems and electric car chargers.


  • Wireless control - Whatever it’s wired into is at your control. Heavy Duty Smart Switch can be controlled on demand via Z-Wave remote controls, apps and gateways.
  • Automation control - Electronics don’t always have to be turned on, just when we need them. Heavy Duty Smart Switch lets you automate and schedule the operation of the high-power devices wired into it.
  • Money control - High-power electronics tend to be those that cost the most amount of money to run. Heavy Duty Smart Switch can calculate and report your spend in watts and kilowatt hours in real-time.
  • Emergency control - In the event of an emergency, Z-Wave can be used to turn off the electronics that Heavy Duty Smart Switch is connected to. That’ll help prevent further damage to the electronics and your home.


Straightforward installation.


Whoever handles it, they’ll have Heavy Duty Smart Switch installed like a pro in no time. They’ll need a screwdriver and a wire-stripper; everything else comes in the box. After safely turning off the power, they’ll install Heavy Duty Smart Switch inline, stripped the wires, and attaching the provided wire terminals to the power cable and to Heavy Duty Smart Switch. There isn’t much more to do, and you can read the installation instructions in advance.


Indoor switch and outdoor switch.


It’s the Z-Wave smart switch that you can use indoors out outdoors. More has been done to Heavy Duty Smart Switch than simply waterproofing it for outdoor use. It’s also been crafted with all the technology necessary for it to perform outdoors flawlessly; a long-range antenna capable of communicating over 150 meters (490 feet) outdoors, and a Z-Wave repeater so that it can also communicate with other Z-Wave devices installed outdoors.
