I have 6 can lights in my living room. Until recently they were dumb LEDs managed by a single Leviton Decora Smart Wifi dimmer paired with my ST hub. Works great except that I cannot manage each lamp separately. For example, when I lower the projector screen, I want to be able to have the cans on the other side of the room to be on dimly with the rest of them off. So, I replaced the dumb LEDs with Halo Wifi’s which, by the way, are awesome with dimming and color temp control. I highly recommend these.
These Halo’s work great using the ST app. They pair with the hub quickly, respond well to commands and are the stuff of useful lighting scenes. However, I can only do it through the ST app. I’d like to be able to control these with some sort of switch, button or slider so that family members can easily turn on/off, dim or select a scene without using an app-capable device. I could get a few of the ST buttons and assign scenes to them, etc. But I’d rather it be simpler than that and that does give access to dimming or color.
Does anyone have suggestions for a ST-compatible, (hopefully) wall gang-sized device that can control such lamps without actually controlling the electrical line? In other words the power should be full and constant to the lamps as the control is in each lamp. So, I need some sort of sliding or dial controller I can use to trigger ST scripting with a value I can translated into dimming? Etc…
