I have a room in my home which is basically an enclosed porch. We remodeled the room last year and because of the way it was constructed, it would’ve been very difficult to wire all the lights to one light switch. So currently, I have the following solution:
- On the exterior wall, I have a Lutron Caseta which controls the two sconces on that wall.
- On the interior wall, I have a Lutron Caseta which controls the two sconces on that wall.
- I have both switches connected to Wink. When the interior wall switch turns on, Wink turns the exterior wall switch on.
The problem, as you can imagine, is that there can be a several second delay before the sconces on the exterior wall turn on because Wink doesn’t run the rules locally. I was wondering if there were any switches (or in-wall relays) which would run locally on SmartThings so that I could increase this speed. Any recommendations? I suppose I would favor a relay solution and then I can go back to conventional light switches, but I’ll look at any suggestions.
P.S. Yes, I know I could mount a Lutron Pico remote on the interior wall linked to both lights and that would be nearly instantaneous, but I’m not sure the WAF (wife acceptance factor) is high enough to allow it.
