I have a pool pump (can provide any details on it needed as I’m not home at the moment) that is electric of course, and directly connects into a toggle switch on the wall right now and then into the breaker. So it doesn’t plug into a wall outlet or anything but is direct wired to a switch. It looks like any normal non-decora, toggle switch to me and is in the typical single gang box on the wall (just attached to the plywood with the metal conduits with the wiring all exposed as it’s in the pool room, so no drywall etc). Like one of these .
Can I just replace it with any Z-Wave switch to put it on a timer, or does it need to be a special rated switch for a pump? I saw the “GE Enbrighten Z-Wave Plus Heavy Duty 40 Amp Smart Switch” which seems pretty cool but looks too heavy duty and is super expensive.
