3-way switch loses signal when dimmed from other side

3-way switch loses signal when dimmed from other side

Model: HS210
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.5.8

I have a HS210 on a 3 way circuit with a dumb 3-way dimmer on the other side. When the dimmer is lowered, the lights go dim, but eventually, the wifi on the HS210 drops off, and the device resets. When it does, the lights flicker and the cycle continues until I put the dumb dimmer at full power. 

 

Is this issue resolved if I upgrade to HW version 2?

The HS210 is not designed to work with a dimmer.

When the dimmer lowers the voltage, the HS210 can not run on that voltage.

thanks, but the device would work if I placed the dimmer on the load side, and the HS-210 on the live side?

That sounds like it should work.

Wondering if this worked for you? Device would work if I placed the dimmer on the load side, and the HS-210 on the live side?
