Where abouts in Canada? I live in Niagara Falls Ontario. Home Depot and Lowes are very different here than in the USA (home automation wise). Unfortunately we don’t have lowes iris and luxury of walking in and grabbing awesome stuff right off the shelf.
For switches all I’ve ever seen here at either HD or Lowes is leviton.
Lights HD - ge link, hue, cree, wifi (can’t remember the name)
Lights Lowes - ge link, osram
Your results may very, stores from city to city seem to carry different items. Bestbuy also has bulbs too.
I’ve used www.aartech.com there located in Oshawa Ontario. GE dimmer is roughly $85 shipped from them or roughly $62 from Lowes USA after conversion. This difference will add up very quickly.
Honestly though if I didn’t live in a border town I would have never got into this whole automation thing. I’m only about 30 min away from lowes in the USA and got all my switches, dimmers and iris sensors from there.
