Currently I have much gas fireplace setup with a Remotec ZFM-80 and a hardwired normal toggle switch to manually control the fireplace if SmartThings or the Remotec are not working, say a power outage. I am moving all my switches from Z-Wave to Lutron’s offering and one thing I’ve always hated is the look of Remotec.
Is it possible to have a dry contract relay allowing me to then have a smart and dumb switch that both can operate the fireplace? I want a smart switch (Lutron) to be able to operate as needed remotely but also to have a physical on/off dumb switch which can kill the fireplace for emergencies or turn on without any power to the house. I do have an on switch under the fireplace so no big deal of the dumb switch won’t be able to do that as well but would be nice.
I hope what I am asking makes sense. And if there are any prior threads, sorry for another one. I just couldn’t find exactly what I am asking.
