Here’s my issue, I am living in an rented condo right now, and I want to do as little tinking as possible with the wiring. not to mention, switches are just not in the right place. so in theory, they are all taped up
I have a Vera and I want to wall mount a switch that I can control scene’s that i have created. I got a GE 45631, but that does not control the vera, it just gets a copy of a scene (and really never works) but I love the idea of how it looks!
what options do i have out there, something that is not too expensive, but will trigger the veralite to run a scene. for example, I have a scene that when I am ready to go to sleep, turns on my hallway light for 5 min, and then turns on my bedroom like for 5 min, and then turns off those lights in 20 min. so I want a button that can activate that scene, and others like it!
I was thinking of just mounting an old android phone on the wall, but not sure if that will work fast enough.
You may want to try the GE 43600 Z-Wave basic handheld remote
for $13, you cannot overlook the value, even though it tends to be a bit dodgy and run other scenes for no apparent reason. If you can deal with that, you have a very cheap handheld remote that can run many scenes. There is a lot of support in the forum for the device.
If you want wall mount and not permanent, you might consider the Intermatic HA07C. Every photo you see shows it as tabletop, but it can also be wall mounted with two screws. It works fine with Vera with the exception of the shifted scenes 10-12. Scenes 1-9 all work.
