    Zwave simple setup

    Im in the process of setting up a zwave network and would like to automate my pool pump. I just have a simple pool setup just a 2 speed 1hp pump that runs on low almost always. Any recommendations on a switch. Found this http://www.smarthome-products.com/p-654 ... odule.aspx

    That's not a bad unit, but it's been replaced by the LFM-20. I'd probably go for the newer module if it were me.

    I am actively pursuing control of a booster pump and pool light. Depending on how the pump is wired (you may have 240VAC) - you may need to look at the relays here: http://www.functionaldevices.com/ and look at driving that with a zwave 24v relay that you can control through your automation system (something like Mi Casa Verde, not sure what you're using).

    Remember you have an inductive load and what ever device you use to switch the power should be rated accordingly - solid state relays while a little more expensive, typically handle these types of loads better.
