I’ve installed a couple of Aeon Labs Micro Smart Switches that allowed me to use Smart Things to my control outside lights, while keeping everything looking the same inside the house since they use the standard light switch for “local” control. I have a room where all the lighting is from lamps plugged into outlets that are controlled via a lightswitch, and was about to install one more of the Aeon Labs switches to handle this, but the box says they are not to be used with a switch that controls a receptacle. Is this a code issue? Or a matter of Aeon Labs wanting to protect themselves from someone plugging a high-draw device to that switched outlet?
Is this the case with all z-wave controlled switches? I know I could rewire the outlets to have them on all the time and then use a z-wave receptacle, but I’m trying to keep everything in the house controllable via the regular light switches for backwards compatibility with the rest of my family.
