Operable with both AC and DC power sources, this two-channel relay offers compatibility with both wet and dry contact modes. Its versatility empowers users to integrate their existing non-smart electrical appliances into their smart home setups. Notably, it accommodates wet contact scenarios such as wall outlets and switches, which include applications like controlling lights, fans, and roller shades. Additionally, the Interlock Mode ensures secure management of bidirectional motors, such as tubular roller shade motors.
In addition, the Relay T2 features a Dry Contact Mode that supports both pulse and on/off switching. This mode proves invaluable in controlling electric devices and appliances like garage doors, boilers, and more, enhancing the overall flexibility and utility of the product.
Built upon Zigbee 3.0, the Relay Module T2 not only supports Matter-over-bridge, but is also compatible with major platforms such as Apple Home, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home. It lets users control their electrical appliances remotely or through schedules, voice assistants, customized scenes, and automations. Moreover, the Zigbee protocol reduces the idle energy consumption of the relay and enhances its responsiveness. The relay also serves as a repeater of the Zigbee network, strengthening the network’s reliability.
The Relay T2 includes power metering functionality, providing users with a valuable tool for monitoring and effectively managing their home’s energy consumption. This feature empowers users to make informed decisions regarding energy usage. Additionally, it enables users to trigger Aqara Home automations based on the power status, such as the on and off statuses of lights. This functionality opens up exciting new possibilities for home automation, allowing for more customized and energy-efficient smart home setups.
Furthermore, the relay prioritises safety with its built-in protective features. These include overheat protection, which prevents the device from reaching unsafe temperatures, overload protection to safeguard against excessive power demands, and a configurable power limit, which allows users to set their desired power thresholds. These safety measures collectively provide users with peace of mind, ensuring a secure and reliable experience when incorporating the Relay T2 into their smart home systems.
