I just connected my first smart bulbs to my new Hubitat and I have full control over them.
What I didn't realize is that the smart bulbs need to have power on them for the automation to work.
We were planning on using a bunch of smart bulbs, but we have a lot of existing three way switches and dimmers that we would have to replace. I want to be able to turn the new smart bulbs on/off/dim from the existing locations, so I think I need a smart controller? I do not want to deal with batteries or remotes. I just want control over the smart bulbs from existing locations.
https://inovelli.com/ seems to have exactly what I'm looking for, but they don't expect stock until September.
Zooz might have what I'm looking for, but I can't tell for sure if the dimmer function is only applied to the connected lights, or whether the dimmer controls are sent to the z-wave. Also everything I have so far is zigbee, so I'd like to stay with that platform if I can.
I bought some Leviton DG15S-1BW Decora Smart Switches before I fully understood the problem and am now wondering of the controls are only one way from the hub to the switch.
This seems like a no-brainer product for home automation and I can't believe that it's so hard to find.
Any help would be appreciated.
