Wall switch Zigbee / z-wave

Hi!
New to Homey…

I am looking for wall switches without neutral that will work with Homey.
I will be needing around 20 of them in my house so I would prefer not to use wifi. So I am left with Z-wave or Zigbee. Do you guys/girls have any recommendations?

I been looking at the Xiaomi Aqara switches. According to some rumors, they will be released for a round wall box next year. Does anyone have any more information about that?

Best regards from Sweden.

Hi Olle,
Happen to stumble upon your post. Don’t know if you already decided?

I don’t have any zigbee experience, only z-wave. In my setup I use the Fibaro Dimmer, together with a normal switch of ‘puls-switch’. The puls-switches are nicer, so if you can choose I would go with those.

If you plan to use LED-lighting I would advice to add a neutral wire. It prevents that the leds don’t turn complete off because of the small current that runs through your switch.

I’m currently also looking for a complete new setup in my new house. Let me know how your choice turned out! Currently I’m still considering the Fibare Dimmers :slight_smile:
