    What is the cheapest way to control my LED landscape lights via HS3?

    Would plugin them into a z-wave wall plug do the trick? If so what's the cheapest one out there? Maybe there is a WiFi module that is cheaper...

    A few years back switched here to DC MeanWell DIN mounted dual 12VDC power supplies connected to 12 zones of LED lighting automated by one UPB switch.

    Today you can utilized a SonOff 4 port WiFi switch using the mcsMQTT plugin to manage each port / zone of lighting and DIN mount it next to the power supplies.

    There is a thread here buried a bit relating to my conversion to LED lamps and then to using MeanWell DIN 12VDC power supplies.

          Vision make a single relay z-wave module with wire terminals, I just purchased one for $25 though I think it was on special.

          You could cut and join that into the power lead of your existing driver, then house it in a water tight box.
