So now that connected bulbs are becoming quite cheap, I’m thinking about replacing a large number of my bulbs with connected dimming bulbs (I.E Cree or Sengled). The one thing holding me back though is the wall switches currently in place - I have yet to find any cheap replacements for the wall switches that would allow me to turn them off and on. Perhaps that’s redundant since the bulbs themselves are controllable, but there are still people in the rooms that want to control those lights without opening an app or talking to the Google Home. They can all be turned on with the switch, but if I turn them off that way, I can’t turn them on again - so I guess I need a connected button rather than a switch.
What do others do for these cases? I hate to spend $9 to $15 for a connected bulb then have to spend another $25-$40 to replace the switch… but is that the only way to really do it right?
