I have quite a few smart outlets that I run through a wink hub and use Alexa to activate. It all works great. However I would like to have a switch on the wall for some of them also. Is there a way to do this. I am open to IFTTT. I just didn’t know of a switch that existed just for sending a signal. Seemed like they all needed to actually be wired to something. Was hoping for something like the pico remotes but have it work with generic z-wave stuff

  • Just to be clear, you are looking for wall mounted, Z-wave standalone switch? Aug 22, 2018 at 20:13
  • do you want a button or switch? a switch can "lie" about the state if you can control it externally...

You can simply make your own device for this using NodeMCU, Solid State Relay (5V), 5V Power Supply. NodeMCU can connect to your home wifi. You can link this setup with Google Home or Alexa too. for more information visit: https://webservice.lk OR https://sinric.com

  • Hi Lahiru, can you add some information about how one would be going about creating such a device. Currently this is more a less just consisting of two (useful) links.
