Apologies if this has been posted before.
Has anyone thought about a no wire switch. I have some wall switches today which have a lithium battery inside and are rechargeable via a builtin micro USB. They talk to a dimmer relay which is connected to a LED.
It would have to support dimming, on/off, and can be placed into 1-gang faceplate or more. It would be useful to have temp/humidity as well.
A switch like this requires no wiring in. Makes it nice and easy to install/move. It just posts commands to a controller which then turns on another smart device.
- power usage on battery
- boot up time - can it come up from deep sleep fast enough to make it responsive
Its just a wall mounted light switch. In a way it's just a remote control that can be used to turn on/off another smart switch. The benefit is that is doesn't need to be wired into the house wiring.
Sometimes running new wires to a light switch is a pain. Cutting holes in plaster wall, drilling through wood. Going wireless on battery removes this pain.
and what exactly do you like to switch with this? A HMI display?
