I’m new to Homey and all the smart home possibilities. During the last days i have read and re-read a lot of info regarding a lot of brands. And i liked the idea of one hub to control all devices with different connections.
Now this is said:
We recently bought a house and because we have some electricity works ahead we would like to install Homey in combination with Fibaro/Neo Coolcam/Xiaomi Aqara.
My first idea was to install in our living room (as primary room) Fibaro dimmers behind 2 wall switches. The idea was to control the lights with these and dim the lights when wanted/needed (evening scene, etc…).
Now i found these Xiaomi Aqara Wall switches (NOT the wireless ones).
We both liked the clean and minimalist look of these switches and as we need to replace all existing switches in the house, we thought it to be a nice idea to switch them all into the Xiaomi Aqara ones. So we have everywhere the same switches and they’re smart too!
So two questions:
- Do you guys have a good experience with the build in switches of xiaomi?
- The only thing bothering me is that with these switches lamps can’t be dimmed (without smart lighting), or is this possible?
For us this would only be a problem in the living room as in all other rooms there will be no use for a dimmer.
I hope everything is clear.
