After starting out with a SmartThings starter box, then getting more door switches, having the laundry room light come on automatically when entering, and setting up security in general with cameras etc, my wonderful wife has agreed to let me wire all our light switches with Z-wave devices!
I am looking at purchasing
7 GE dimmers #12724
12 GE on off #12722
7 add on switches #12723
and lutron claro wall plates 1,2, and 3 gang (enough to cover all new switches)
Yessh you never realize how many switches are in a house till you start counting them… this was just the downstairs.
I have already installed a ge dimmer (toggle) and add on toggle, so I am familiar how they work, and my house does have all the necessary wiring (only built in 2003)
we have some ceiling fans with lights, but I am resigned to the fact that there is just no easy way to set them up so I am just going to have them as on/off at the switch. Controlling them from the fan. (They all just have one light switch to turn whole fan/light off)
Is there any reason someone could dissuade me from using GE? after reading so many posts here it all becomes a jumbled mess in my brain.
I am going to sleep on it for a day or two before pushing the “buy” button on amazon I am also going to throw in a new echo dot for good measure!
Please chime in with any thoughts or concerns.
