I would like to replace 8 floods scattered around the outside of the house.
Hoping to attach to my Hue bridge.
The philips bulbs (a19) have been great, but expensive in the flood light styles.
Looking for alternatives.
I have kept to the stock drivers, mostly.
The floods are all under the eve mounts.
The brighter the better!
This homes wiring is not conducive to smart home wiring.
I have not pulled the switches yet, but every other one i have, has no neutral, just switched power from/to fixture.
I cannot come up with the name of the wiring type.
The wiring has some oddities, master bedroom requires fully entering the room, closing door, the switch is 4" from the hinges.
The back bedroom light switch is outside the room, by 4'.
Switches and outlets upside down!
Any non neutral dimmer would work then. Innovelli, zooz, lutron. It wouldn't have to be an on/off switch. It would just be a short ramp up from 0-100
But then having to create buttons and what not fir individual bulb control and running them can be tediuous is all. Then if they drop off the mesh there is climbing up on a ladder and doing the on/off/on/off/on/off dance with them to put each and everyone back into pairing mode.
I have a fair amount of Zooz product, will go looking again.
Need the ability (waf) to turn them on and off at the switch.
Hub control, or its no fun!
Zooz had a possible switch that hides behind th existing switches, have to find it again, and pull the switches to confirm wiring and space.
Well, I did it.
Pulled the cover for the switches, pulled the switches out.
Lo and behold, all 4 spot sets of wires start here, and there is power and neutral!
Cleaned up the wiring and installed 2x GE enbrighten fan/light switches.
Included and tested, they work great.
