Hi all I have a new project I am setting up and I wanted to get some feedback before I really start making big wiring changes.
My current setup is this. I have three rooms with smart bulbs. Each room has a set of four bulbs connected to a three way pole. Additionally one room has a separate bulb connected to a three way pole. So in short I have four sets of lights connected to three way poles.
All of the bulbs are connected to ST with no problems. I am able to control them from the app and have created a series of lighting apps that work great. Now I want change out the switches so that my light settings don’t keep getting reset.
Here are the parts I have
Osram lightify bulbs
Aspire rf9501 dw wall switches (master, zwave compatible)
Aspire rf9540 -ndw wall dimmers (master, zwave compatible)
I am looking for auxiliary switches currently as I understand I probably cant use the master switches in an auxiliary component.
I do NOT currently have the minimote and I am curious if that is a requirement.
I have 8 switches I want to replace.
I want to be able to control my devices from ST and from the wall switches. This means I want the switches to keep current info about the state of lights (dim level, on/off) and share it with the ST hub. Basically, when someone flips one of the switches or dims one of the bulbs from the wall I want ST to be able to get that info and reflect the current status in the app. I am hoping this will be possible using this hardware.
Any and all suggestions would be great.
