Does this switch work with IFTTT?

That's what I want but I want NO persistent-on option. I want to KNOW that the lights gonna turn itself off. I'll keep shopping.
A simple mechanical turn timer u can pick up at HD or lowes will do it

I have a combination of these, the three way version, and the dimmable version throughout my entire house. A few things that may help some:

- If you're not comfortable with your home's wiring or are unfamiliar with the NEC, it may be best to let someone else install these. The instructions are for a very simplistic setup (one switch controlling one light ie no other circuits to or from the switch), but homes can have all sorts of more complicated wiring setups.

- These are bulky unlike more common switches and sometimes can be a pain getting back into the box. For most of my installs, it took longer to get them back into the box, than it did to make the actual connections. This was usually the case when I was connecting a 2 or 3 switch box

- These require a neutral (common) wire.

- After power failure, these will return to whatever state they were in before the failure.

- These can control the "on/off" function of a ceiling fan, but can not control speed.

- These will NOT control most gas fireplaces. If I remember correctly, the switch for the fireplace just opens and close the gas or something like that. I'm currently still researching ways to control my fireplace via Google Home

- If you have (or are planning to get) the three way version, the light indicator will be brighter for these than the three way version. If you care about that sort of thing, it's really noticeable when they're in the same box together.

- These will occasionally lose connection with the router, but they will reconnect on their own. This hasn't happened much lately so maybe there was a firmware update recently.

- You can use the app to set timers and scenes and things like that. I have mine set to turn the porch light on and off at dusk and dawn and turn on a light every now and then when I'm on vacation.

- These do not require a hub.

- They work with both Google Home and Amazon Echo.

- They fit in regular decora switch plates if you have a double or triple box setup. This only comes with a single box plate. I suggest you get the extra large size if you need to get a switch plate.

That's all I can think of right now, but I'm willing to answer any specific questions anyone has. Overall, they have been a great addition to my home. I'm much lazier now lol.
I have my fireplace working with Alexa, I have to get to work right now but if you still need info on how to do it let me know

based on the one review it seems like this does need a common wire, can anyone confirm?

trying to make my 1950's dumb house smart is tougher than it looks when everything needs a C-wire
... neutral. Please say neutral Smilie

You'll... probably freak an electrician out. Or not.

C-wires are used / referred to for HVAC. BUT... it's been a few years and my education may not be complete.

Can I use these switches for ceiling fans and use alexa to control the speed? Also, can I set the schedule to turn off the fan at 4am or something like that? Thanks.
The short answer is: this switch will not allow you to do that. If your fan happens to be one with remote speed control via a switch, that varies the voltage betwen 0-120V, then you can control it with a dimmable smart switch. My friend had a fan that was wired with two switches on the wall, one for the light, the other had fan control, on/off as well as speed, so that would be a candidate.

As you see, there are a lot of conditionals there...so you probably won't be able to do what you want without an expensive fan and a pair of smart switches....or a smart fan with echo/google home built in.

Say I want to use one of these in a three light switch opening, is there a plate I can use?
I have 2 HS210's in a 2 gang box, 3 HS210's in a 3 gang box, 3 HS220's in a 3 gang box, and 4 HS210's in a 4 gang box. The included wall plate will only work on a single switch installation. I tried the Legrand Radiant series screwless wall plates, and they were not deep enough to reach my wall. Someone else commented on the Lutron wall plates--those are deeper than the Legrand, but they're also quite spendy (so are the Legrand). What I ended up doing is buying the cheapest wall plates for this style of switch from Menard's, and then cutting off the plastic tab on the back of the wall plate that is on the screw hole with a utility knife. The plates now fit perfect, cutting the tab off was easy, and the plates themselves were between $1-$3 each, rather than the $6-$12 each that the Legrand radiant cost, and the Lutron plates cost even more.

As another poster said, these switches are on the bulky side. For whatever reason, getting the 2 HS210's in the 2 gang box was actually the most difficult out of my installations.

I did my own research...
Draws about 1.2watts when off, 1.6 on

Are you sure? Could you please provide a link?
IF I have 10 of these switches, those will draw 12 watts for apparently doing nothing!!

Thats one of my concerns as well. I also would like to if having 6-8 of these will affect the wifi speed. I currently use Z wave switches and relays.

Gotta plug Lutron Caseta again. (I have no affiliation with them.) I switched (no pun intended) from WeMo to Caseta in my new house. Aside from the additional features like the Pico remotes, they do not connect to Wi-Fi (they use a hardwired hub and radio signals), and the power draw when off is estimated at 0.2W based on the draw of the related RA2 switches.

They do cost more at $50 per switch, but they are way more professional and reliable. They make for a whole-house lighting solution. You need the $85 switch/hub started pack and then add as you desire. With the lamp dimmer signal extender, I had no problem getting all of my house covered.

1.2 seems legit based on the link below. Looks like 1-1.5 is the range for most WiFi plugs and switches. Others that are radio-wave based (like Z-wave) use significantly less.
