Alright so I have a countertop that I am looking to put phillips hue br30 leds in. The cuntertop lights have a dumb dimmer switch that control them. I love the idea of hue tap, but want the same integration that my linear zwave switches has with ST as well as a physical switch that will turn off the hue lights without closing the circuit, so hue lights can be turned on with app still even if I turn the physical switch off. Here is my idea please let me know if this is possible guys.
Basically, I am going to replace my dumb dimmer switch for either a linear dimmer or on/off switch(most likely an on/off and prob a accessory switch not master switch) and wire up the linear switch’s neutral and ground. Now I was thinking that if I tie the load for the light with the power for light I can keep the the circuit “always on” and pair the linear switch with a smartapp to turn on and off the hue.(no load if use accessory switch) I am thinking I might need to also tie in the load and power for light to the linear switch line in to power the switch. Please let me know what you all think and any problems I could face, changes I should make or dangers cause I am by no means an expert with this. Heck I may even be way off, and this might not even work just thinking things through. Thank you all.
