I have been playing around with lights for a while. I currently have a couple of Hue bulbs set up, however, I don’t like the fact that I have a light switch and a hue controller. No matter how many times I tell friends and family to use to hue one, they generally turn off the lights at the switch; rendering the hue useless… and sometimes after a power-off like this they don’t come back online and I have to pair them again.
I also have a couple of chandeliers with 14 bulbs in each, and swapping each of these out for a smart bulb will cost a small fortune.
So, my current plan is to move to a Zwave in-wall dimmer module and use regular LED bulbs in them.
Probably this one…
However, I’m a bit confused as to how you install these… I have read a couple of guides which make vague reference to needing a relay? Is this the case, or will the dimmers work by themselves (what would a relay be for?)
Also… I have a couple of 3 way switches (stairs etc). Do I simply need to connect two of these to match the current wiring?
