In my house i have many basic and old fashioned switches and outlets. Since i’m adding some ‘smart’ to the house i plugged some bulky pocket sockets into several outlets. And next to some light switches i added a philips hue switch, This did not improve the look of things…
What i would love to find is a good solution for this problem. I do not want a bunch of different buttons, outlets and switches all over the place. I simply want matching switches and outlets and upgrade them from their 90’s look!
After reading a lot about this topic i’m thinking i need something built in. Can it be done with nano switches from aeotec or same idea but from Fibaro? I understand they can operate lights, but i am not sure how well they do outlets and if they can measure power usage aswell.
Or perhaps there is a better and/or cheaper way to do this?
All light bulbs i have are Hue’s. This might make it tricky because they should not be cut off from power. Is it possible to hit a switch and it does not cut the power but does send a command to smartthings only?
For the actual switches and outlets im looking at something like this below. They offer modern looking items and have all different combinations i need.
