The Panda 1 enables you to simply add automation capabilities to your home. The device is designed to have very low standby power consumption. This can reduce the overall energy consumption of your Home automation installation significantly.
Below, you can see a sample installation wiring diagram:
|Power supply||230V AC|
|Switching capability||up to 2500W (resistive)|
|Active energy consumption||0.15~0.35W|
|Standby energy consumption||<0.08W|
|Wireless technology||ZigBee, IEEE 802.15.4|
|Safety||On-Board Fuse for power supply|
The Panda 1 starts with the pairing process after the first powerup. The Panda1 will then join an existing network if possible. You can reset the pairing state and start the pairing process by pressing the appropriate pairing button at the top side of the Panda 1.
The Panda 1 is fully compliant with the Zigbee2MQTT Project and therefore also with the HomeAssistant and OpenHab project. Basically with everything which can connect to an MQTT environment.
