Back in stock. What is nice about these is they are essentially 4 programmable buttons (at least with Apple HomeKit). The middle buttons don't have to dim. They can do whatever you want.

I use them with this $7 adapter from amazon. The magnet is not as strong but it does well enough and can pop off the remote and get to the switch if needed.

These are normally $25/each, so $35 for a 2-pack is pretty slick! Thanks op!

So one remote controls.... one light bulb? Or can it control more than one device at a time?

Can control whole rooms - etc. It has various functions/abilities. Probably best to google all the things you can do with it.

Useful if you have a lot of bulbs.

Example in the living room. Button 1 turns on ceiling bulbs. Button 2 turns on Apple TV and corner light and ceiling lights off. Button 3 dims ceiling light bulbs to 40%. But if I want to start out at 40% can just hit button 3. Button 4 turns any of that stuff off if it is on.

Convenient but pricey. I guess you could do the operations from your smartphone too.

Cosmetically it is interesting because it sticks out some but I like the functionality. Now the kids don't accidentally turn off the switch. In a couple years when I move I can easily remove.

It can do pretty much whatever you want. Out of the box functions are pretty basic, but you can wipe it and reprogram with third party hue apps.

For example in my front hall:

Switch 1/4 single press: On and off for hall light
Switch 2/3 single press: On and off for outside light
Switch 1 long press: All downstairs lights on 100%
Switch 4 long press: All lights in the house EXCEPT outside light off
Switch 4 double press: Downstairs night light mode (one light per fixture @ 10%)

This of course is made possible by lots and lots of Hue bulbs.

I have 3 switches from bulb + switch deals, but I haven't been using them because I didn't like the OEM mounting solution. This makes it a lot nicer to slip over though. Did you have any issues with the magnets or flex? The 3 star review shows that there are some fixes that can be made. Pretty cheap so it doesn't really bother me, but I'm just curious.
