So I put a regular leviton smart switch in my guest room and then plugged both lamps into leviton dimmer modules. The idea here was that the wall switch originally controlled a outlet but I rewired the outlet to be always hot and then hooked up the switch. Then once I got the smart lights app configured with the lamp modules I thought hey this is going to be awesome I touch the switch and boom lights come on. However due to the delay for when the switch finally tells the hub that hey I’m on, makes turning the lights off and on in this room a bit of a hassel. Sure the 6-30 second delay for turning them off would be fine for getting into bed but to have a guest want to turn on the lights and have to wait for a long time is a bit frustrating.
So today at HD I saw the Lutron Pico control for only 24 bucks and I almost picked it up, but did my research in the store and found out that its not compatible with ST (I read that it might work with V2 but well I’m still on V1 and in hurry to upgrade since I’ve only had the hub since May). So this got me to thinking that there must be a device out there similar to this one that works with ST. I’ll gladly yank the old switch out of the wall and just put in a simple battery operated device that when you push a button sends the signal to ST to turn on the lamps in there. I’ve read through the suggested threads that came up while I was typing this out but couldn’t really find one that did what I want it to do. Anyone got any suggestions? Also once I do find one, anyone know of a smart app that could delay the turning off of the lamps when the off is pushed so that hey I’m climbing in bed but don’t turn the lights off for 10 seconds to give me time to get into bed. I apologize if this was already covered in another thread and I just didn’t see it. Thank you.
