New build / switch recommendation


(Lana) #1

Hi there. My husband and I are building a new house and I’d like for all of our recessed lighting to be controlled by dimmer switches. I’ve looked into GE Z-wave switches, but I’m not sure which specific one to get if we decide to go with those. I’d also like a smart switch for our fans. Any recommendations or tips would be much appreciated. I’m very much a noobie.

Welcome! :sunglasses: A new house is always exciting-- good luck with the project. ( BTW, I’ve moved this to projects so you can get individualized responses based on your own needs and preferences. )

You might start by taking a look at the following thread (this is a clickable link). The discussion of light switches starts around post 40.

You might also want to take a look at some of the project reports on the quick browse lists in the community – created wiki on the “Whole House” list and the “get started” list. They might also give you some ideas.
