I’m looking at options for battery-powered light switches for Hue lights in our new house.
(Or powered by kinetic energy. but I hear those are irritating to push, which is what makes me hesitant about switches like Niko’s Friends of Hue. Experiences welcome.)
What I’m looking for:
Compatible with Homey
Integration with existing switches and outlets, so can fit in Jung/Gira/etc. frames (meaning, no Xiaomi or KAKU switches)
Preferably RF or Zigbee
“Traditional” switch design with single or double rockers (or dimmer knob); or multiple buttons with at least one or two larger than the others
This seems like a good option: https://www.robbshop.nl/wandzender-8v-zigbee-robb-smarrt / https://www.robbshop.nl/wandzender-2knops-zigbee-robb-smarrt
The downside is that the buttons seem fiddly. The 8v will be great for areas in the house where I need a lot of scenes/flows, but for most rooms I prefer a switch with larger buttons.
I really like the look of https://www.cctvcentral.co.uk/lightwaverf-wireless-mood-control-master-wall-switch-white-jsjslw101wh-1773-p.asp which combines large on/off buttons with smaller ones for scenes, but I don’t think it fits into standard frames.
This one also looks fantastic - very traditional design but with multiple buttons - https://www.robbshop.nl/draadloze-scene-wandschakelaar-zigbee - but I don’t know whether it works with Homey and it’s quite pricy.
