NODON - ZIGBEE MULTIFUNCTIONAL MODULE
The Zigbee Multifunction Module allows you to control a garage door, a gate, a radiator, a socket, a boiler, etc.

A real Swiss Army knife, the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 multifunction micromodule is capable of controlling almost any device, gate, garage door, electrical outlet to which you have connected a screen, a boiler or water heater….This Multifunction Module is Zigbee 3.0 certified and works with Zigbee-compatible ecosystems and voice assistants (Amazon Echo, Jeedom, etc). With a switching capacity of 3680W and a potential-free output, it is not missing much.
As you can see below, the range of labels supplied with the DIN rail modules is complete and above all well done. The documentation of the multifunction micromodule Nodon SIN-4-1-20 is always well done, thanks Nodon. Hold on how generous I am, you can download them directly via the links below: 👌
I wanted to point out that this test tutorial is not as complete as others on the site, I allowed myself this discrepancy because you can already find on the site a test of the Nodon module of the roller shutter SIN- 4-RS-20, do not hesitate to consult it.
Here are different installation diagrams that circulate on the official Nodon site as well as on the excellent sales and documentation site domotique-store.fr
We could also put in connection an NO/NC switch on the central input in wired connection and put the motor in the garage door directly in impulse on dry contact.
Attention, your gate or garage door must be equipped with an input for dry contact (normally intended to connect a simple push button). The SIN-4-1-20 must be set to pulse mode (see extended documentation).
VMC will be supplied with a neutral and a permanent phase on PV (low speed). The dry contact input of the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 will be connected to the phase and the output to the GV input of your VMC.
The boiler must be fitted with a standard thermostat input. Boilers connected to a control panel via a bus are not compatible. Depending on requirements, the input/output terminals of the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 module can be connected instead of your current thermostat (thermostatic management performed by your home automation system), in parallel with the existing thermostat (allows forcing the ignition of the boiler by home automation) or in series with the existing thermostat (forcing the boiler cut-off). The module must be installed near your VMC or at any place where a neutral, a phase and the GV (high speed) wire of your VMC are accessible.
I tested the operation of the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 module with the three-wire operation diagram and the remote switch mode works perfectly.
The image below represents the connection of the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 in three-wire remote control mode (button at the phase.)
You will be able to see the integration of the nodon module with din rail in the electrical panel.
Both modules are compatible among other zigbee2mqtt so you could easily use them on Homeassistant or Jeedom.
Regarding Nodon it is also compatible:
Comparing these two modules there is no picture Legrand passes the course of ergonomics hands down, but this victory has a cost, counts 77€ the module delivered, we can say that it is Dear. **You will get by at 55€ delivered to Domadoo provided you take 5 Rail Din boxes of the brand.
The Legrand module has a button on the front for operation and another for inclusion accessible once integrated into the electrical panel, although it will only take the place of one location in the panel. A little more you will find the connection diagrams on the side. In addition it is equipped with an energy meter.
At Nodon it will be necessary to include the module before integrating it into the din rail box unless it is the first use. Otherwise apart from that the box is relatively well made but it will take up 1 and a half slots in the electrical panel. You will not have access to the inclusion button and the physical switching on of the lights
The number of functions is different from one module to another, you can see from the capture below that Legrand also offers the consumption statement in W.
In the end I don’t know if the price difference is so exaggerated ?
Well the example is not very telling, let’s assume that you want to buy 5.
A difference of almost €100 to see if that scares you.

As for the other modules of the brand, Nodon signs a no fault on the quality of this product, I wanted through this article to prove to you that the Nodon SIN-4-1-20 works well in remote switch mode 👍. However, I opted for the Legrand Netatmo modules on a private basis because, firstly, I have a Legrand electrical panel and, secondly, the financial aspect was of little importance to me.
