Good Eveing guys!

Just wanted some advise on the Quinetic WiFi Wireless Receiver.

I have installed 5 of the units in a property in Harrow which was grade 2 listed. the client wanted a chandeliers installed but wanted them to be switched independently! can't chase the walls to add an extra switch line as it was grade two listed so I chose to install the Quinetic WiFi Wireless Receiver.

It has been two weeks and the client has called and said that two of the units have stop working! The chandeliers are LED so there is no problem for load.

Has any one had this problem before as I have been informed that the units are of high quality and very reliable.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks

I would do some routine checking for the obvious then get replacements they have only been in service for two weeks.

Should be perfect then. I've seen some that have tons of lamps and I'd be worried about inrush. Two thoughts - check fuse in receiver is ok and attempt to re-pair it with its switch. And perhaps try to swap pairings etc.

The unit has power, when switched on the red light on the unit lights up but no power on the out put!

How are you switching them via a switch or a fob, do you have the wireless units that also connect to the wifi network at the house or the standard units, if you do have you tried the app on a phone to switch them on and off, also they may have lost their sync/connection.

It is switched from a MK type switch and the app as well! but no joy!

Thinking that the unit has gone faulty! just wanted to know if this has happened to anyone before! I love the product but don't want to pitch it to customers if the unit goes bad after a month or so!

not seen it with quinetic, but some receivers crash in either the on or off state. dropping the supply to them reboots. if so, it's a fault and you should get replacements. the ones i seen are cheap as chips from china so not worth the effort of trying for replacement. i just buy another

I have been using the standard quinetic switches for years and never had any issues with them, haven't tried the WiFi ones yet as not been asked but would like to hope they are just as robust. I would have to agree with @telectrix try resetting the units first.

As above reset the unit and how are they set up with MK switches as I use a wireless/wifi unit for my garden lights sync'd with two fobs with no issues at all.

Quinetic do a grid module that is for mk the same kinetic gubbins in it as the standard switch but a lot nicer to look at :D
