Really wish my house didn't have 40+ dimmer switches. Want to go all zwave but will have to take out an equity loan to pay for it.

This might sound obvious, but if you don't really need the dimmers everywhere, you can probably just replace them with regular paddle switches. Ultimately though, you're talking about a difference of $10/switch and dimmers are nice.

I really want to strangle the guy that built it - he put 3" and 4" cans EVERYWHERE. Not only that but they're all low voltage, so I've got transformers all over my attic. I've got ~ 20 in my living room on 5 different dimmers. You pretty much have to dim them to be able to see without being blinded. On top of that they have 'scene' controllers - which all broke. In the living room it's not a huge deal as the switches are just on the wall. The kitchen and master bedroom are a different story - only the scene controller is easily accessible, in the kitchen I've got 5 dimmers in the pantry and the master I've got about 6 in my closet. Fortunately the one in the kitchen still works and I was able to swap one from another room for the master when it failed. Kitchen I could probably make work with simple on/off. Bedroom dimming is nice. But to your point - for an extra ~$10 a switch you might as well go for the dimmer. The guy actually owned his own lighting design company, he lives across the street from us now and just has basic fixtures with a switch per room because he admits he got a bit carried away with our house.

He was an ambitious fellow. Too bad he couldn't have put his energies elsewhere. Six in the closet is really hard to imagine. Is it a walk in closet? I always like seeing new electronics go down in price. For your sake I really hope they go down.

To clarify they're not for the closet, they are the dimmers for the master - just located in the closet for a 'cleaner' look. Only easily accessible switch in the master is the single scene controller. So when that broke I then had to head into my closet to turn the lights on/off for the bedroom - annoying is an understatement. That's why I stole a controller from one of my other rooms.

Yes no maybe it's hard to say things change stuff happens there are worse deals at times better deal other times in general it's hard to say one way or the other if one needs it right away the deal takes another perspective just buying to store in case it's needed ever often reduces the cost to value equilibrium I also wanted to ask you a question if I may if I had used punctuations would this have been easier to read and comprehend thanks

Why don't you buy the Eaton desert sand zwave switches from Amazon that are on 2 months backorder. Put up with the stupid color to save $$$. They are like $8 bucks.

Can I install these dimmers to control a ceiling fan speed ? Will it work? Will it damage the motor or so ?
