I have been out of the loop for a while because light switches were priced so high for so long. I just got an Amazon Echo and bought some OSRAM bulbs, but I have some need for light switches 1) because there are so many bulbs managed by some of my single switches 2) I want some of my lights to work as normal (independent from smart home stuff), 3) The previous owner of my house didn’t make the best decision and a lot of my fixtures are candelabra style bulbs.
I was wondering if there is a post that already exists or if people could post the current state of the different light switch brands. The things I am looking for is
- Switches that work with Smartthings and Echo (with light switches I assume if it is ST compatible it is Echo compatible)
- The cost of the switches (my ideal range is 20-40). The bulbs i bought were 15 each, so I am looking at when I can get a switch for cheaper then when there is >3 bulbs.
- Where to purchase them (looking for amazon or a major chain store (lowes, home depot))
- General review
