Looking for Pizo-Electric Zigbee or Z Wave Switches - No batteries or external power required


(Dan Pressman) #1

I am about to build a new house and I want to use something like this to avoid the cost of wiring light switches.

Anyone have any experience with these?

Recommendations?

Don’t cut cost by not running wires and switches. I wired quite a few houses before. You should add more wires for future expansion instead. Pizo switches still quite far away for home automation so stick with wires for reliability and options.

Hue’s TAP works in this fashion. Doesn’t integrate with anything but the Hue bridge, though, I’m not sure what the network protocol is.
