I'm putting in wemo light switches where I can , they look like this

 

 

I'm hoping I can replace all a bunch of my other switches with switches that match.  I can't use wemo's everywhere since they dont work for 2 way switches etc.  

 

 

 

anyone know where I could source some of these?

don't mean wemo switches themselves, you can source those from Mightyape/jbhifi/noelleeming.

 

 

 

im after just switches that look like that (without the power light, but same style) for other light switches.

Does PDL have something similar - they're not the same.  They had some push button ones that they display with their smart home crap (which out actually giving any detail about what that means).

 

Like these: 

 

Not sure what the series is called.

Doubtful that you will get them matching exactly. but those big switches are quite common overseas. I was in a house recently that had big switches too, but not sure where they got them from. Maybe you could has some of the companies that specialize in homes for the disabled and elderly, as they should be using something similar.

They are made to match the decora series of switches that are used in the US, I doubt you will find any with the required documentation to be installed in NZ, but start with the likes of leviton who are one of the larger manufacturers and some of their stuff gets sold locally.

yeah looks like leviton is a match, just need to find some locally.  Don't want to import these and use stuff that isn't legal here, hoping to find something sold locally and is legal.

Did you manage to source anything locally that looked the same? I see Amazon has faceplates for up to 4x switches.

thanks for the heads up, ordered 4 more of them :)

 

Need to count how many I actually need when I get home, but don't want to miss out on that deal.

Bunnings now sell wemo and have their 15% price guarentee so may be a better place to go to to get them ;)

 

edit: never mind, same price on their site now. Damn the lamps have got cheap too. At $20 each I might get a few more despite only coming in warm white.
