I am getting ready to start installing a smartthings hub, along with some room light switches. Will all zwave light switches work with every type of household light? In my current X10 set up, you cant use a light switch to control florescent lights or leds. You have to have a relay switch. so there was basically two types of switches, one for regular bulbs and one for florescent and led. Next if a room had a two light switches, when you bought the switches, you had to get a slave and a master.
Right now I have some regular bulbs, but I want to go total LED over the next year. If I purchase a switch, I want it to work with led. Here are some questions:
Will a dimmable switch be able to turn on a floresent light if I just put it at full or do I have to get some type of relay switch?
What type of switches to you get for 3-way applications where a room has two light switches controlling the same lights?
Is there a price difference between non dimmable and dimmable zwave light switches
Is there a certain mfr of light switches I should stay with or stay away from?
Thanks for any advice
