Q. I need to replace a Remcon switch. Can I use this one-button Genesis switch?
A. No. 1-button Touch-plate switches can only be used in a Touch Plate system (a 2-wire system) where the same button can be pressed to alternately turn the light on or off. In contrast, Remcon is a 3-wire system, so in order to adapt Touchplate's switches to work in a Remcon system you have to double the number of switches you were using so that one button turns the light on and the other turns it off.
Q. Is this a 3 way low voltage switch?
A. Yes, all low voltage switches can be wired to be a 3 way. The switch is just wired in parallel to the relay it is controlling. The relay responds when receiving a signal from either switch.
Q. How do these low voltage switches work?
A. The Genesis switches are SPST (single pole, single throw) which is a momentary action. The relays do not have a NO (normally open) or NC (normally closed) position as they just hold their position until triggered by a push of the button. To control lights, you would push the button once for ON and push the button again for OFF.
