    It looks ok, but as I understand it connects via usb cable to Windows computer running Stream Deck software?

    I agree, HS Touch gives you unlimited possibilities. Being able to have other things on the screen, such as the weather forecast, current conditions, views from cameras, etc, really enhances the Home Automation.

    But to be really useful, a larger tablet is desired. But for that small space like the OP wants, I was thinking of getting a used Android phone. Can be run off of a power supply, it is small enough, and will run the HS Touch client with no problems. Take the SIM out, and there wont be any carrier charges (but could still call 911).

    Sure I considered HSTouch, but it's too much hassle...
    I prefer a device with physical buttons and just programmable label text, so I can change the text depending on scene/mode.
    Which can fit into standard switch box.

    Or go with HSTouch for unlimited possibilities. If there's power in the box, store the power supply inside, then arrange a frame for any size pad. I've used Dollar Store frames, modified to fit; and more lately printed custom mounts on a 3D Printer.

    I haven't tried yet, but believe they could be wall mounted.
    The small one might fit a 2 gang box and the larger one in a 3 gang box.

    Not expensive programmable wall touch/button panel

    Just wondering if anybody can recommend a wall mounted small panel with buttons and small LCD screen, like C-BUS eDLT?
    So I can connect to HS via WiFi or ZWave, program the labels on LCD screen and trigger events from button press.
