Howdy! First post to the Community but have been lurking for about six months … anyway …
In addition to the GE Z-Wave and Zigbee switches, HomeDepot is now carrying the Bluetooth variety (Bluetooth Timer Switch and Bluetooth Smart Dimmer) … they come in packaging similar to the new GE Z-Wave and Zigbee boxes, but are blue (sorry can’t attach a pic for some reason). The description includes:
“Bluetooth Smart lighting controls solve previous issues associated with the short range of Bluetooth technology by maximizing range with the new and emerging CSR Mesh chipset, allowing each device to act as a repeater, simply add more devices to extend the coverage of your entire home …”
Another alternative for those with Hub v2 … once (if) Bluetooth gets turned on.
