(This topic is asking the same thing as Wall light switch : cross operation, but that topic is rather old, so I’m hoping there may be some new ideas.)
I am just about to embark on automating my home. To begin, I would like to “correct” some odd switch placement. I have a hallway with two lights, and two switches, each switch controlling one of the lights. Unfortunately, each switch controls the wrong light.
My hope was to install two switches, and the use the controller to simply swap the lights controlled by the switches. Unfortunately, it seems all switches first toggle the state of the attached load, and then notify (or are polled by) the software. I want a switch that first notifies the software and lets the controller decide what to do.
Is such a thing easily achievable? I imagine it could be made to work using two in-wall relays and two switches, with nothing attached to the load terminals of the switches, but that gets expensive very quickly. Once this is in place I will be wanting to roll it out to my entire home, so buying both a relay and a switch to replace every light switch is not ideal.
Thanks for the help.
