    Mark,
    Put my hat in as another looking forward to this possibility. Light Almond is a major WAF and really is what's stopping me from pulling the trigger on a bunch of switches. I take it this more than a $2000 investment for you guys.

    They do not, at least not for status, but an update is coming in a couple of weeks that adds this. The switches are user upgradable.

    And Dragon Tech seems to have disappeared, or at least appears to no longer be importing switches to the USA. http://dragontechind.com/

    I'll have to keep an eye out for similar hardware to grab plastic paddles from, or maybe just test on some cheap normal switches first.

    I'd like to play around around with automotive dye (SEM Color Coat, etc), but it's kind of expensive to do so right now since the plates are not sold separately.

    Back in March you though there was a possibility of offering "Light Almond". Is Homeseer any closer to adding "light almond" paddles? Other manufactures have been slow rolling out Z-Wave Plus products. GE just released some Z-Wave Plus switches in other colors, but no dimmers yet. I hate to buy "old" tech just to get the color I need, so I continue to standby

Just trying to understand if I could potentially easily swap out cover and trim at some point or if its a completely new switch. It is not clear when holding switch in hand if it can be replaced.
    Yes, the existing paddle and trim ring can be replaced. Still on hold though!

    You should try out one of the Aeon Micro switches. From what I read, you keep your regular toggle switches and you get the z-wave benefit as well. I dont have one, but am tempted to get one to try out.
    They work great with one exception - you need to have room in the box for one of these. I have one and had tried to implement it in a single box that had a couple of feeders going into and out and there just wasn't enough room for all in there. Should be fine in a ganged box though.

    What I dont know is if the switch is off.. how it is to get power... so turn a light on with normal switch off...
