With the best of my knowledge, here it goes…
With full integration to ST, cloud to cloud etc. What sort of delay to turn on a light switch.
I find the wall light switches instant. I can assume that other switches and plugs would be equally as responsive
Are the light switches dimmable.
Do they require a neutral.
No neutral required, I managed to easily fit the MiHome light switches onto my existing 2 wire ones and I’m not exactly a qualified electrician. A big warning is that you need to check that you have enough depth in your existing switches to fit the MiHome switches into. I found my new extension had the right depth but older switches didn’t.
As an example if I turn a light switch on manually, woud I be able to set a rule up to turn it off with no motion. I suppose this is to do with the state issue people are talking.
State is reported if you use ST or the MiHome app to turn the lights on/off. If you physically press the button no state is updated in ST or the MiHome API. However, it would work in the scenario where you physically pressed the light switch and had ST send an off command after no motion as the device handler forces an off command no matter what the state of the light is.
Any other pros/cons that might be worth noting.
The depth of the device is the biggest issue I found which limited the switches I could replace in my house.
The MiHome gateway is required for the ST integration.
One feature that is great is the fact that there is a red LED on the switch itself. I use one of the MiHome switches for my garage light which is inside the house and this always gets left on as you can’t see the garage light when the door is closed. The red LED makes this obvious.
Hope that helps.
