Ok, I dont have anything for home Automation yet.
What I would like:
I have 3 lamps controlled by a standard wall switch. With 3 seperate dimmer modules that have a slide switch next to the lamp. All analog and not smart, today. But I want to make them smart!
I want to be able to say Alexa lamps on at 50% or flip the wall switch on/off. It’s important the wall switch functions. I don’t want to have to give visitors a magic spell book for them to figure out my house. Not a fan of smart bulbs because it breaks wall switches.
I also want to be able to individually dim each lamp via alexa and also have a remote control next to each lamp.
This is what I have today. Just no Alexa control or ability to have lights on a schedule / scene / routine I can invoke.
One other thing is when I flip the wall switch on I want the 3 dimmmers to go back to their prior dim level. I do not want them to blast on full brightness.
The remotes should also dim each lamp smoothly. No lag.
I have tried to search the forum and the web. This must be impossible? What hardware do you suggest?
Seems like I need:
3x smart dimmer outlets
1x smart wall switch
3x smart dimmer remote.
But which ones and what custom things do I need to grab to install on smartthings as I assume what I want is a challenge?
