I love using this to turn on my espresso machine from bed. I used to use my Echo, but sometimes that hooker would tell me its on but its not.
Use it for a week and you won't need to look at the buttons (which are clearly labeled 1-4). Do you look at your TV remote whenever you need to change the channel or the volume? Not sure what you'd consider ideal, but it works very well for me, and I certainly couldn't make my own for $10, $15 or even $40. As for ease of use, I guess I don't agree that pulling out my phone, opening an app, then tapping through to find the controller I want is easier than picking up a remote and pushing a button. Honestly, it doesn't take that long to remember what four buttons do.

It's not necessarily about ease of use compared with Alexa but also appropriateness. When I'm going to bed at night and the kids are sleeping, I don't want to be hollering at Alexa to turn off all the lights. Instead, I just grab the remote and silently press button #4. Ditto if we're watching TV and I want to turn off the air conditioner -- much easier and more considerate to push a button than to pause the TV (also a button press) or talk over the top of it.

With the second remote I just ordered, I'll now have one by the bedside so I can turn on the hallway light so I'm not tripping over everything when I get up in the middle of the night. My wife wouldn't be too thrilled if I asked Alexa to turn the light on at 3:00 AM, and at any rate there are some things that Alexa still won't control (or at least didn't until I added the Ask Alexa skill to my SmartThings hub with considerable effort yesterday; it's not for the faint of heart). With this, as long as your hub will talk to the device, this remote can control it.
Turn stuff on and off. Lock and unlock doors. You know, remote control type stuff. Smilie



Yes, I have a Hue bridge (1st gen) connected to the remote via a SmartThings hub (2nd gen). You can get the 1st gen Hue bridges dirt cheap nowadays -- if you've got Hue lights, there's no reason not to have one, IMHO.



Via my SmartThings hub (See reply above).



Yes. It does its magic via SmartThings (in my case). There are limits, of course -- these are on/off switches, so you wouldn't use them to dim lights, change colors, etc. (That's not to say it would be impossible to do these; perhaps there's a way to link the button presses to such actions. I use it for simple on/off toggles.) Aside from that, if your hub speaks Z-Wave and can also connect to your Zigbee devices, you should be good to go.

Every once in awhile the stars align and something I was going to buy anyway pops up on Slickdeals. Great deal, thanks!

Would not work on Chrome on my phone, so I used IE on my desktop and it worked.

I don't have it yet, but It should, at least in SmartThings you can program it to with a SmartApp.

It controls anything that can be controlled by Z-Wave. I have one that we use in our living room to control three different groups of lights (Philips Hue) plus a standalone switch. It could control up to four more things/groups of things because you can assign different functions for short press and long press, but that's all I need in this area. I've been waiting for months for this to go on sale again so I could get another for another room. Thanks, OP!

I will mention that this is $19.99 regular price at Amazon, so the $39.99 that Ritz has as the regular price is crazy.

yes, in fact you don't even need a smart hub, you are able to program up to 4 devices (outlets, bulbs etc.) directly to the remote.
