I am considering adding an in-wall Aeon relay to the dumb 2-way decorator switch in my bedroom, and I’d appreciate your sage advice on the following matter. The switch is of a locator, or illuminated variety, meaning that there is a light in it that glows when the switch is in off position.
My understanding of the switch operation, once it’s wired via a Z-wave relay, is that it begins to behave essentially as a 3-way switch. The relay figures out the change in its status and reconciles it its own on-off state. My question, then, is how is it going to affect the locator light. I figure there has got to be some low-level current going thru the switch when it’s off, to create the circuit which the relay could monitor. Will it be enough to drive its low-voltage cathode lamp reliably, or will it flicker in a nasty way?
