I'm looking for a UL-certified WiFi wall switch for programming network effects in Python.

  • UL-certified
  • Wall-mounted
  • Mains-powered
  • 2+ physical switches
  • Python-programmable.

I want to program some stateful network effects using either lifxlan or Photons. Ideally these modules would run directly on the switch but at a bare minimum I need the switch to emit network notifications (such as switch ID.123 off) that can in turn be processed by an intermediate server.

This is going to replace a one-way switch in a relatively new US home. There are a many wires in the switch box with 4 different colors of wires. I haven't figured out if any is a neutral. The devices on the circuit are all smart so the switch need not interrupt the power flow - the circuit may be continuously on.

  • I still need a wall-mounted, mains-powered device to provide WiFi switching using physical toggles/buttons.

  • @jsotola do you have a reference for "shopping questions are off-topic"? According to this long-standing meta post purchace recommendations are fine so long as there is sufficient detail on what the OP is looking for.
