Came across this and wanted to share.

Micro center has the TP-Link HS-210 3 way smart switch for $49.99 - IN STORE ONLY.
http://www.microcenter.com/produc...t_Switches

I was able to price match at Best Buy - the did t have any in store, so is being shipped to me.

On a side note, I have this switch already, works great - Alexa compatible. I was able to use 1 package (comes with 2 switches) for 2 different 3 way lights. You just need 1 smart switch on each circuit.

Are you still able to manually turn the light on and off with the dumb switch without losing the wifi functionality?

Works exactly as it should, shut off on dumb switch, turn on upstairs on smart switch etc. I even had the app open, turn on/off on dumb switch, app reflected this. There was a previous post where some guy said it wouldn't work, but it does.

The smart switch is wired with power and a neutral, along with 2 traveler wires, so even if I shut power downstairs, it still has power to stay "on". So no, I don't lose WiFi when I shut off using dumb switch. Interesting enough, I had to wire it this way as one of the dumb switches I was replacing only had 4 wires, including the ground. So I left that as is and installed smart on other end of stairway.

If anyone cares, it did come with two. And as someone else confirmed, you can use just one switch for a circuit and leave the other dummy.... Both dummy and smart switch will still act as three way

Will this work as a regular light switch? If so, individually this is cheaper than the HS200.
