    Philips Hue has some great stuff with the JowieHue Plug-in that does similar.
    I love this switch as centre comes out and acts as a desk remote as well.
    So, anyone know if this would be supported by the HS Zigbee plugin (via Lightify gateway)?

    For me, it was for the bulbs. Love the day bright setting in morning and relaxed yellow light glow at night from the Hue. The light strips also integrated well without any software scripts etc.

    Lol. I have a few. . .just never put any on the wall. . .btw, how do you identify what each button does on the mounted minimotes?

    New Z-wave Remotes!

    So, the new Jasco remote is quite interesting. As I understand it, you can install a z-wave bulb in a ceiling light fixture, then attach the remote switchplate holder to the original light switch box. This will give you both local and HS3 control of the light. This eliminates the problem of keeping the light fixture always on via the wall switch plus it allows local control. It is a simple wiring change (remove the old switch and wire nut the wires together). In my experience, actual z-wave light switches do not fit inside most older single switch boxes.

    I have 3 of the original GE/Jasco z-wave remotes. I use them a lot. They work great, but they were very difficult to setup. Presumably the new ones will be easier to setup.

    I wouldn't hold my breath for anything from GE/Jasco. It appears their business model has changed over the years. Now they do not seem interested in directly bringing products to market, but rather creating them and offering them to other to actually put them on the shelves. Has anyone actually seen any of the Z Wave Plus products that they've had certified available for purchase? I've been eagerly awaiting the new toggles, but have yet to find for sale anywhere. Factor in the firmware disaster on the last rev. of the Z Wave non-Plus dimming products (remote control on ignores dim rate parameters) and GE/Jasco is no better than Aeon Labs.

    Aeon has the worst martketing/sales team. So many products from them have been "coming soon" forever.

    True
