I am looking for a multi button device which ideally could be wall mounted. The idea would be to initiate routines or perhaps toggle a device off/on. Does such a thing exist?
How about this one?
@aruffell already gave you what is probably the best suggestion, but there are a number of other alternatives as well. See the button and remotes FAQ. This includes both handheld and wallmount models.

Also, many people like to use a wallmount tablet or Wi-Fi phone for this, usually using the very popular SmartTiles dashboard app. Costs a bit more, but gives you a lot more functionality. You can also customize tile size and color.
There’s even a thread in the forum just for discussion of various customization and wallmount options:
So that’s another possibility to consider.
Thank you to all those who posted suggestions. That’s what I really enjoy about the community, an opportunity to learn from others and their experiences. Going to try Remotec ZRC-90 Scene Master and hope it has high WAF (wife acceptance factor).
After including and using the devlicetype @aruffell suggested, is there a consensus about smart apps to use with this device?
It works well with core. A lot of the other smartapps can’t handle the 24 button codes.
