Looking for non-load controlling in wall switch


#1

Hi,

I’m sure this has been asked, but I cannot seem to find a good answer. Is there a good option to having an in-wall switch (that’s not 10 buttons) in order to control something like Hue bulbs? The Hue dimmer, as I understand, does not fit into, or over, an existing single gang. I’m willing to hard-wire the light fixture. TAPT switches had this option and it worked GREAT (before I decided to switch to ST which I love btw) but they don’t function with ST or at least I couldn’t get a device handler to work correctly (with reporting)

Sorry if this has been beat to death already lol.
Thanks,

Nick

There’s a FAQ for that… :wink:

In particular, the Linear/gocontrol zwave auxiliary switch is NOT load-controlling, so won’t damage your hue bulbs, and is mains-powered, which is what a lot of people are looking for. So it sends a message to the hub, the hub sends a message to the hue bridge, The bulb comes on . :sunglasses:

But there are a lot of other choices. See the FAQ.
