I was wondering if anyone knew where to get non z-wave switches that look and feel like the GE/Jasco ones? I can’t justify spending $500+ on switches and only need automation for part of my house, but I would like to maintain a certain level of consistency. Does anyone know if these products exist? Thanks
I got my Decora switches in bulk at a contractor supply store (that also sold to the public). Made the cost per switch inexpensive, and I did have a lot of switches to replace. Also, you will need Decora faceplates as well (that matches the switches). If you have multiple switch groups, they make Decora faceplates for those as well.
And if you really want to go whole hog, you can replace your electrical outlets with the Decora style as well.
They are a momentary tap on and off, bottom for off, top for on. Since they (and all other Z-wave switches) are NOT mechanical devices, there’s no reason for them to “hold” their physical position to indicate the state of the switch. They have LEDs for that.
As other’s have indicated,they look identical to Decora style switches found in any hardware store.
