I just moved into a new home and I am starting the smart home project from scratch. My old house was all Insteon products and I had a pretty good feel for what to do with them, but I decided to go Z-Wave with the new house.
In a bedroom, we have a ceiling fan that has four lights on it. It is controlled with a single toggle switch on the wall and you have to use the pull cords to control the fan speed and fan on/off. I want to make this fixture Z-Wave controlled but want the lights to operate independently from the fan. Easy to do with an Insteon fan controller but I have not found a Z-Wave controller that can do it. Seems like a pretty basic function, so am looking for advice on what controller or switch I will need.
I thought about adding Z-Wave bulbs and then controlling them with a mini remote, but if the wall switch is accidentally turned off, they would not work, so I eliminated that option.
