Wireless Switch-New Location

There are several possibilities. Any device which can communicate with SmartThings can then be used to trigger another device, so you set up a virtual three-way that way.

The most popular is probably a zwave battery operated switch, The Eaton Cooper RF 9500 “anyplace” dimmer switch. It looks like a regular switch and they even have a special face plate which allows you to put it next to other wired switches.

Eaton is the company, Cooper is the division, and aspire is the model line. It might be listed under any of these names, but the model number is always the same.

They also make a dumb version of the switch which looks the same, so make sure the model number has the “RF“ in it.

They make both a dimmer version and a binary on/off version and people often get confused because the binary version says it can be used “in conjunction with dimmers“ but they mean used as an auxiliary on/off switch. Not that that switch itself can dim. Each is available in the two different styles and several different colors. Only the model number will tell you if it can dim or not.

You can also look at other options in the buttons FAQ. Some of the devices there are mains powered, some are battery powered, so read the descriptions carefully.

The FAQ is intended to just be a list of devices with no more than one or two posts about anyone device. There will be links to discussion threads if you have any following questions about any individual device, so please use those.
