Are there any in-line Z-Wave Relay devices available?
Currently there’s not many options for an in-line Z-Wave module.
The SwiidInter Cord Switch might be an option for some cases but unfortunately it can only handle a load up to 660W which sometimes isn’t enough.
The Swiid also needs wiring directly into the equipment power cable, sometimes it's not possible to do this, or maybe you don't want to be chopping up the existing power cable.
Luckily it’s fairly easy to make one yourself with just a few off-the-shelf parts from your local DIY or electrical store.
The example shown below is ideal for use in-line with a mini-stereo system, a PC, or other such electrical equipment. Once built, it's "plug-and-play" - just remove the existing power lead and add your creation :-)
And there you have it, a neat and tidy in-line Z-Wave relay!
We've made a bunch of these ourselves with different input and output leads and they are proving very versatile around our automated home.
