I’ve got several places where I connect a GE Z-Wave wall switch through my STH to a GE Z-Wave receptacle to control a lamp. I add both Z-Wave devices and SmartThings handles the automation. This works fine except when the Internet is down.
GE has the ability to pair an “Add-On” wall switch directly to a regular GE Z-Wave wall switch without going through SmartThings. The add-on switch is not a Z-Wave device.
Is there anything like a dedicated “Add-On” receptacle that pairs directly to a Z-Wave wall switch so that I can control the receptacle and the wall switch together just by adding the Z-Wave wall switch (as if they were actually hard wired together) and hopefully get it to work even when Internet or SmartThings is down?
