I've had this in my 3C tracker for a while and the price just dropped. Not sure if this price drop is permanent, but it usually runs around $45 so this is around a 15% drop. This is the lowest price since the all-time low of $31.49 back in November of 2018.

Raise your hand if you're still waiting for them to create a zwave fan control that also controls the lights in a single unit? Those are like the only non-zwave switches I have besides sensor based ones
Waiting for this also. Found one of these on amazon but it was garbage. Why is it so hard to do this? I have non-zwave type in

I have a number of these installed, they work great. 0 issues whatsoever, straight forward install, works great with SmartThings and Alexa (via SmartThings), and the wall switch itself works great. Care to elaborate on why you think this is "trash product"?

If you were in IL I'd consider. But any competent electrician can do this for you. Many incompetent ones could probably also do it. It's pretty easy if you already know how to safely work on home wiring. YouTube some videos; take a hacksaw to cut nails holding existing junction box to stud and then it comes right out of the wall. Widen the hole in the drywall, put in an "old works" electrical box, and Bob's your uncle.

How do you people afford your electric bills?
This uses barely any energy on it's own so your statement doesn't make any sense. Personally I automate my fans so all the bedroom ones turn off at 7:30am every day to make sure if we forget to turn them off they go off automatically when we are all leaving the house. If anything this product saves me on my electric bills instead of having a fan running when no one is home.

Then either you have a defective product, which does happen occasionally, or you don't know what you are doing. I have 4 of these on ceiling fans and with this sale will pick up the last one I need. No issues with any of them.

Care to elaborate on how automating a ceiling fan shows laziness?

I think zooz just announced a 2-in-1 switch for fans and lights. Will se if I can find it....
i've had 4 Zooz switches fail on me so far... last one, i walked into the bathroom and it was buzzing loudly and couldn't manually be switched. none of my GE switches have stopped working though.

certainly not buying any more Zooz products.

Warning: conversation skewing off-topic ahead


Half of that and that's in Colorado which has super low rates for electricity given our production is still around 80% coal. Cheap. In states where the rates are higher (read: more renewable production) this time to recoup initial investment is even lower. The thing to keep in mind is that even if you don't do solar you're still paying for electricity each month so it's not like buying a car where if you don't take action you save yourself whatever the monthly payment is. This means that if you pay $200/mo for electricity and are considering financing (NEVER lease solar. Ever. Just don't.) a system and the payment is $200/mo it's a net wash to your budget. At $200/mo production the system will pay for itself in less than 10 years at which point you'll be net positive $200/mo until they no longer produce. Most warranties will guarantee 80% of rated production through 25 years. That's a lot of years of net positive $200/mo every month.


Keep in mind, all of the numbers above are hugely simplified for conversation sake since this is heading off-topic. Just know that photo-voltaic panels are advancing in leaps and bounds annually. Where this may not have been a viable option even a few years ago suddenly they're efficient enough that it's becoming a cost positive proposition for more and more consumers. The higher your rate the more likely they're an option for you. There are a bazillion moving parts to this and everyone's situation is different but these days you don't have to be a tree-hugger hell-bent on saving the world to install solar. Even if all you care about is $$ you may find that this is a wise move for you and your needs and if it isn't today it likely will be in another year or two at the rate things are going.



To get us back on topic here, these smart home setups play perfectly into the over-arching topic of energy conservation w/o having to sacrifice to save. In many instances things that simple get left on and aren't of benefit can be instructed to turn off thus saving energy. Fans can be used in place of power-hungry central air units to help keep rooms more comfortable or then can even be used to help rapidly cool the occupied areas after having the a/c off all day when nobody is home. For whoever said that Z-Wave devices somehow use MORE energy I think they're naive to what can be done with a smart home system since most end users actually use them for exactly this reason.

I had those light/fan combo switches (non-zwave) in five different rooms in my house. Ripped them all out, ripped out all the junction boxes, cut larger holes in the drywall, and put in the junction boxes with an additional gang so I could separate those functions into two separate switches. Took a few afternoons but was worth it. Now I can add zwave to whatever I want.
This is exactly what I did. Works great

removed the above off topic conversation, in an attempt to not continue to derail the thread... but yeah, i was joking to a point, but panels and configurations have gotten much better than they were in the past, almost to the point where they're a viable option for all. i've looked into in it my area before, not recently honestly, but it just wasn't a dive i was willing to take at the time. i will however be looking into solutions as my wife and i expand our animal sanctuary and require power out in the fields for new barns and whatnot...


on the cost saving aspect of controllable switches... yeah, if you're the type of person that leaves things on or have people in the house that regularly forget, they'll save a good bit of money. personally, i'm neurotic as all hell. i do several walk throughs of the house at night and before leaving for the day in the morning to ensure everything is how it should be. i have too many animals in the house for things like schedules on my AC or fan, to be running for my arrival, they're on all the time when the temperature warrants it for the animals. i have smart switches on all of my outside lights, but that's more of a convenience for when i'm outside at night working or checking on animals. the one place that's i've made use of smart switches and sensors is for setting up custom climate control for our birds outside with fans for the summer and heaters for the winter, based on outdoor temperature.

but yes, many different uses for these things and they will benefit most people when configured correctly.

Same as most...

I have combo switches in my wall right now that control fan and light individually with a little slide toggle. Need a smart switch that will do that.

On the Amazon purchase page (on the app), it says "Works with Alexa, Requires Hub to control with your Device : Echo." And the suggested purchase is a Samsung SmartThings hub. Does it really need a hub? Or can it be used standalone with only an Echo?

What about using a smart bulb in your fan, and a pico remote to control it. Example: Hue bulb, and a Hue remote mounted to your wall, next to the smart fan control.
