Same problem as wemo ones. Only single gang and no 2 way switching. Almost all the switches at home have one or the other so can't put smart switches in.

The sooner NZ/AU get the new version the better. I'm very reluctant to get anything hard wired from AliExpress.

My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

jonherries: I am glad of this too. Apparently the new Ikea bulbs are compatible with the hue bridge and home kit once they have been updated. They seem pretty cheap too.

First time post. Came here because I am interested in Home Automation.

 

 

I have these (Tradfri). Not too expensive in UK/Europe, and should be coming to Ikea in Oz soon. So far I am using the GU-10 spotlight bulbs. I have these set up with two remote controls. I also have the Tradfri gateway, but I haven't set it up yet as I haven't decided which HA server to go with. Probably Domoticz.
