I’m looking at the best smart switches for the house. I’m looking at the GE 12722 and Homeseer HS-WS100+, mainly. I hear that the Homeseer switch has “instant device report” capability but the SmartThings hub has a way to work around it and tell when a user has manually hit the light switch. Does anyone know what kind of latency this report has?
I ask because I want to set up a “report only” switch that will be hooked up to a ZigBee smart bulb in a lamp. The GE switches are cheaper but if they have a lag in this kind of report I might go for something more expensive. Also wondering if there is any problem with the “report only” plan where the switch is not hooked up to a lighting electrical load.
