I recently bought one of the new gen5 aeotech doorbells. This made a home-made doorbell i created redundant. I will now show you how i repurposed it as a switch to control whatever lights i wish in my bedroom.
reason: I replaced the switch in the bedroom with the ge fan controller. However this means i had to use my alexa device to control the lights from the other room. I came up with an alternate way that doesn’t wake my wife up at 4 am.
The first pic shows where i put a hole in the wall next to the fan switch.
The next pic shows where i connected a standard wall switch into the “external” pins of the sensor.
The third pic shows where i simply fed the sensor into the wall, leaving the switch exposed.
This final pic shows the new plate on.
The current smart app for bulbs allows you to control bulbs with a sensor so no issues there. It works as intended
