New to smart home (like, one week new) but having a blast learning about it. I have two bedroom closets each with a light operated by a pull chain that I want to integrate without wiring up a wall switch. I know can install a smart bulb and operate it from Alexa or my phone, but sometimes I need to be quiet (husband still asleep) and operating it through the phone is not as convenient as hitting a simple switch.
What’s a good cheap switch or remote that I can stick in the closet to turn the light on and off? Phillips Hue has a remote dimmer switch but that’s more than I need for a simple closet light that only needs to be turned on and off. What’s a solid and cheap alternative?
BTW, I do have an outlet in the closet I use more frequently, but not in the other closet. I’m open to switches than can be plugged directly into the outlet, but interested in battery-powered options, too.
Also, let me say how much I love this community forum. I’ve learned so much in just a few days!
