GE Zigbee 13-amp Single Pole 3-way/4-way Wireless White Rocker Indoor Light Switch $34.50 [lowes.com]

21% off (was $49.99) now $39.50
GE Zigbee 5-amp Single Pole 3-way/4-way Wireless White Rocker Indoor Dimmer [lowes.com]

These are the best deals I've seen on Zigbee switches since the last time Lowes put them on sale back in March.
I usually use Z-wave with Vera, but since these are zigbee I could use them with the Wink Scene Controller.
I'm surprised that no one found these sooner!

Good deal, but I have a few and they do not work with my Panasonic ventilation fans. They just click constantly when I try to switch it on. I had to buy a Lutron Caseta in-wall switch to control the fan at nearly double the cost of this GE switch.

Same price at Amazon and pretty close to their normal price.

GE Z-Wave Wireless Smart Lighting Control Smart Dimmer Switch, In-Wall, Includes White & Light Almond Paddles, Works with Amazon Alexa, 12724 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006LQFHN2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_0WSzzbCWBMJCK

I have several of these and they work perfectly with Smartthings.

Home automation newbie here: so you have both Vera and Wink controllers in your setup?

They shouldn't work with a fan....you need one designed for fans unless you want to destroy your fan motor. GE doesn't make a ZigBee fan controller, they do make a Z-Wave one.

I am using vera and have the plug-in for Wink. It sees it as scene controller. This way I have Zigbee covered.

I decided against using home automation protocol for my main hallway that leads to my bedroom. Instead I am using a Occupancy Sensor connected to a 3-way switch. I don't see a real reason to spend extra money for an interior hallway in the house.
Sensors are the only other device I would buy after light controls.
I love having everything connected to Alexa, but it is all really a luxury. The most important places for automated lights, in my opinion are outdoor lights and all of the light on the perimeter of the house, so that you can utilize geo-fencing and you are able to turn lights on and off randomly when not at home in order to have your house seem like someone is present in the house.

Thats for the old z-wave one. Not zigbee.
