Smart lighting with smart light switches

Recommended Posts

Seems pretty decent. The Australian standard is a bonus...A lot of them aren't.

 

The main hurdle is being lucky enough to have a neutral cable available at the light switch, as opposed to the standard two-cable hard active/switched active.

 

Mainly newer houses have a neutral cable at the light switches, not so much older houses. Most smart switches need the neutral cable in order to operate.

Yes that's right. Luckily we got neutral wire. Will report back our experience.
