Just saw this mentioned on facebook,

 

They have a few lamps, some downlights and wall switches.

Showing stock of that locally, will have to see if the downlights have appropriate CA ratings on them, and if they can supply SDOCs for the items which if they can will make many people very happy. Price is a little high but given the rapidly dropping dollar probably fair.

just had a look, the webcam tells you the app name, which is a clone of the smart life app, part of the TUYA platform.

No bad.  Much cheaper that zwave. And tuya as a platform is pretty popular and fairly well supported by openHAB and home assistant (not sure homebridge)

Kogan, arlic, connected, grid, few more are thus clones. Can connect these devices to original tuya app, or flash with tadmoto without soldering.

I've got kogan switches and arlic lights. Works well.
