    hey team,

    When wiring up your ELV C-bus gear, is it important to put two switches in somewhere for the remote on/off feature using the brown/green cores?

    No its not important.
    Insulate the green and brown cores that are connected to output units at a convenient point and dont bother with them in the rest of the installation.

    This should be a part of the documentation and every training course. There is no need for remote on/off in a residential install and connecting them up just creates potential problems.

    Used to be part of the training course when I was involved but from what I hear today the training is not so good.

    I did the C-bus fundamentals course a few months ago and they had the switch there. I just can’t really see a time when I’m going to want a hard switch to turn everything on or off.

    Obviously I’ll have an all off switch but that’s configured.
