Shallowest dimmer / on off switches?


(Ethan Kaplan) #1

I am replacing a bunch of Insteon switches in some two and three gang boxes. I realized mid-way through replacing one that the Z-wave dimmers from GE are ¾ of an inch thicker than the Insteon switches.

Weighing the cost of replacing the boxes or aesthetics of a box extender, who has the shallowest dimmer switches? Insteon’s were about 1.47"

Leviton has the smallest, but they are also the most expensive.

Ever try the Evolve ones?

I believe they are about the same size as the GE.

Update: the Evolve switches are much shallower than the GE ones. A hair thicker than the Insteon ones, and use pig tails vs screw in connectors.
