Hi - long story short but i installed a kitchen disposal unit and right now i am switching it with a manual rocker switch under the sink. This isn’t ideal and i was hoping to just “zwave” enable it using my old trusty GE Zwave appliance plug module. Tested from my phone, it turns the disposal on/off from ST hub v2 with only milliseconds of delay (can’t even notice). My other elegant option was to drill a hole in the marble counter (yikes) and put a air switch which i don’t want to do.
I searched high and low last night for a “reliable” simple button that anybody could press to turn it on and off. Amazing no such animal exists yet:) The Fibaro button looked awesome but reviews were horrific. Almost any battery powered simple button had numerous issues with response time, waking up etc. I need reliability as if there is an issue/jam with the motor i can’t have sub optimal wait times.
This led me to looking at the GoControl or the Leviton Zwave Plus wall switch to have it act like a remote for the GE module under sink. There is a outlet near the sink we never use so was going to install a zwave plus switch and wire no load - just have it act as a remote control.
What is my most reliable option? I can grab the Leviton zwave plus switch from local home depot and return it if it doesn’t work. Will this switch still control the GE module if the ST goes offline or does hub need to be online?
Many thanks all!!
