I’m fairly new to the whole smarthing/zwave so my apologies first if this has been asked before. I tried searching here and google but have not found an answer (…yet)
So we have the normal (?) flood light with motion sensor on the back, left and right of the house. They are various versions bought from Costco. I would like to replace the regular switch with a z-wave switch. I have GE, Leviton (Z-wave) and TP-Link (Wifi) switches. I tried replacing with the GE Z-wave switch tonight and when i turned it on, the flood light would flash continuously.
The flood light used to be on (powered on) and allowed the motion sensor to work. However, my neighbor indicated (?) that the lights are often on all the times at night, possible triggered by the neighborhood outdoor cats and what not. So i want to be be able to turn them off (cut the power off during the night), but i want to be able to control them and turn on adhoc when I work in the yards in the evenings/nights. It gets pretty dark out there.
I know there’s integrated Z-wave flood light in the market, but I like these light and would prefer not to have to throw them away and replaced them if i don’t have to.
here is the latest flood light we have https://www.costco.com/Home-Zone-LED-Motion-Sensor-Security-Light.product.100354462.html
Is there a Z-wave switch that allow me to control it manually? Thanks in advance!
