Can the Dragon Tech WS-100 be used on a lighted ceiling fan? I assume dimming models are not recommended for use with motors, but are simple on/off okay?

I received this in an email from Wink today. I picked up a few switches and dimmers using it. Shipping was free as well! Personally, I prefer the Vizia Rf+ line over the GE/Jasco line.

I wouldn’t depend on using a “regular” switch. I have only tried using GE on/off switches with the fans. It was … weird. The fan would start and sound really loud (humming) and sometimes not start at all. I use Hunter fans so maybe another fan would behave differently, I don’t know. After that experience, I switched to GE fan switch. A little more $, but they work flawlessly. Read the following post

I currently have 6 fans on the Leviton fan controls/dimmers (1000W). I highly recommend them despite the steep price. Deals can be found on eBay and occasionally Amazon.


I just ordered the the GoControl/Linear GD00Z-4 from Amazon… I wasn’t going to but since the GF wanted a Halloween costume from Amazon, it was “accidentally” in the basket as well… :smile:


Dont know if this has been mention but if you go to and search for z-wave there is a couple of Linear z-wave switch there. I bought a bunch of switches there with a 20% off coupon code comes down to 22 bucks a piece. For example this switch Linear LINEAR WD500Z-1 Z-Wave 500-Watt Wall Mount Dimmer LINWD500Z1 is $29.01 if you buy 1 but if you add another it take off $1.46 and 3 it would be 2.46 with an addition 20% off up to $50 bucks. I am not advertising for them but it was a very good deal. I bought all my switches from there in 1 week all 24 of them.

I’ve been buying moisture sensors from staples online… they seem to have one of the best prices and you can get a 30 off 60 or more coupon on ebay form around 10 bucks.

I have bought eight … one for each bath and kitchen in both houses. they are small work well and install quickly if you buy two at a time with free shipping cost is pretty reasonable


oh ya no mucking with device types. they install as a normal door open/close sensor and when you save the type is automatically changed to water sensor… also reports battery fine.

Friends of Hue Lightstrip $62.99 (reg. $90)

This is the older lightstrip they are getting off the shelves. The newer one is the Lightstrip plus (Shape Light) which is much much brighter (1600 lumens).

Still a deal but as you said, important to know it’s not the Plus!

Looking for a true Android alternative to the $49 Kindle ? While I know nothing about this tablet or brand, the 200MB of free T-mobile data for life would make it a great control center if you are worried about losing home internet service .

No clue if Bayit devices will work in ST, but Staples has a big sale on them this weekend. Smart outlet $32 , IP Cam $67 , and LED Bulb starter kit with hub $63

do you have the model number or the link to Amazon?

Bayit is a cheaper WeMo type pocket socket plus bulb. Has its own app. Doesn’t integrate with anything else that I can see. No I FTTT channel, no API. I’m not saying it would be impossible to hack an integration, but you’d have to be pretty technical.

It looked like a cheap Wemo, but I didn’t dig far enough to see if one of our resident brains had hacked them :smile:

The color changing bulbs at $63, are cheap enough to just use for holiday decorations. About 1/3 the price of comparable Hue kit.
