Probably a fairly basic question, but I’m new to the smart scene. I have outlets currently in a bedroom controlled by a switch at the room entrance. All four sockets are controlled by the switch. Works great for the lamps plugged in, but not for the alarm clock or charger that plug in to the outlets as well.
What I want to do is change one or both of the outlets to a smart outlet, and use a smart switch to control half of the outlet wirelessly to run the lamps, but keep the other half of the outlets live at all times for other things.
In the switch box, I have hot, neutral and ground, so I am planning on just baypassing the original switch and wiring the outlet live at all times. The new smart switch would draw power from the box, but with no switched load.
Does this sound doable? We already have a Samsung Smart things hub in use.
