Light up your home with this C by GE C-Start smart switch. It turns lights on or off based on movement or a change in the natural light, and the C by GE app lets you create schedules to keep things lit when you're away. This C by GE C-Start smart switch works via Wi-Fi or the app for convenience.
  • Four ways to control your lights
  • Control your lights with touch, motion or app and add voice control when paired with a Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa device-no additional hub required to connect.
  • Wireless control
  • This smart Wi-Fi switch works as dimmer switch while enhancing the traditional bulb functionality to include motion sensing, out-of-home control, scheduling and scene setting.
  • Smart bulbs are always connected and ready to respond
  • The C-Start Smart Switch maintains voice and app control at all times, so your C by GE bulbs will respond to voice commands and provide out of home control even when the wall switch is turned off.
  • Built-in motion sensing and ambient light detection
  • Motion and ambient light detection turn lights on or off based on the amount of natural light or motion in the room providing hands-free control and energy savings.
  • Set the brightness level to match your mood or task
  • Dim and brighten traditional lights using touch or app and add voice control when paired with a voice assistant.
  • Find the switch easily in the dark
  • Illuminated light ring helps easily locate the switch.

If these are going to be Wi-Fi, they need to be cheaper, not just as expensive as their (more secure) Z-Wave counterparts.

I have yet to see any1's wi-fi light switch get hacked.
What are they going to do? turn on & off the lights?

If they turn it on/off rapidly via a script, it can overload your lights and maybe fire? Also, your wifi info might be on their cloud similar to what happened to Wyze. And, what if GE goes out of business? Maybe not GE but I see people jumping on other wifi products from way less reputable companies.

Security concerns aside, these are some of the things you have to think about:

- Too many Wi-Fi devices can slow down your network, especially if you're using ISP equipment and not your own. Sure, a competent person can set up multiple Access Points in the house, but is the average joe going to take the time to do so? Or even know how to?
- If the company was to stop supporting the devices or the network is down, the lights/switches become inoperable/useless.

I have many GE Z-Wave Plus devices in my household with absolutely zero issues.

WiFi IoT devices are essentially a Linux server on your local network behind your router/firewall that you have to give your wifi credentials to and then they connect out to who knows where.... Not my idea of secure. Sure, GE is more reputable than some silly-named generic Chinese brand on Amazon, but I would much prefer zwave as well.
