Hi guys, sorry but I was not able to find a similar request, probably because I am too newbie?
My need is to integrate a full smart light in the house, but I have a big doubt.
Example: Buying only smart bulbs, keeping the existing switches:
in this case, if I turn off the light from switches, the light will not be possible to be controlled remotely, since the current is not available with the switch turned off.
How do you solve this issue, usually?
Then I was thinking, probably it is better FIRST to replace the existing switches, with the smart model. Then I will be able to turn on/off the light, manually by switches, but also remotely, from the same switches. And this is fine.
BUT, If I'd like to have also the dimmer function, I think it is needed to add smart bulb too.
Then here is the question. Is this the right solution? I mean, having a smart switch that will control the light, but at the same time the light is connected to the system by itself?
This is not creating confusion? What I am missing, please?
Thanks for help
