I know. I will be getting a zwave switch that allows me to disable the internal relay. This will basically turn the switch into a scene controller. Tap up once for the “standard” scene that I decide, double tap up for a second scene. Hold up to brighten, hold down to dim. I might even do double tap down to manually turn the red nightlight on.
The switch I was looking at (because I already use the same switch for something similar elsewhere in my home) doesn’t list the minimum load required, but the dimmer version (which can actually have the relay disabled as well so it functions as a scene controller, but it can’t dim Hue bulbs below 10% when done this way) of the same switch does, which is 10W. I don’t know if that same minimum load is true for the switch that doesn’t have a dimmer. I’ve emailed their support to find out.
They have a newer switch and the dimmer version of it says there is no longer a minimum load requirement, but again the non-dimmer version doesn’t mention minimum loads at all. I’ve emailed their support to ask for clarification because I’d rather get the older model since it’s cheaper.
If you’re curious about the switches, It’s the Zooz line. Specifically the Zen21. The newer model is the Zen26.
