This seems like a basic question but I couldn’t find a great answer upon searching around. I have an existing light controlled by a dimmer. I would like to add a switch (with dimming capability) in a different location that cannot be easily reached by running new wire from either the light or existing switch.
I know you can add a smart dimmer in place of the existing switch and control that with the smartthings hub/smartphone - i just want to be able to do what you can from the smartphone from a new physical switch. I can control it with my smartphone yes, but not everyone has smartphones (or don’t want to deal with an app).
Can you point me to devices that would do this (I realize it may be 2 devices)? The location of the new switch (with dim capability) can access power/ground/neutral, but it can’t control power for the light or the existing switch.
P.S. The “would be nice solution” would support this at the load itself - thinking of another application where I want to add a new light where I have power/neutral/ground off an existing circuit but no easy way to run a switch wire. In that case the existing switch and associated wiring does not exist so I would want to add the load controlling device right at the load itself (not add a switch that would never be used: i want to add a ceiling light downstairs and can get power to that light from upstairs, but I can’t get a switch wire from downstairs to the light (easily) - i wouldn’t want to add a switch for a downstairs light on the 2nd floor just so i could control it remotely from downstairs).
