Always on switch?

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

What recommendations do you have for the physical light switch, which always leaves the power on, but can still be used to trigger another HomeKit device? I guess something is used for Hue lights, and that's really what I'm looking for. Basically, I have a [Netatmo Presence Floodlight Camera](https://www.netatmo.com/en-us/security/cam-outdoor) that requires the light switch to be "on" to provide power. My goal is to replace the light switch with a HomeKit switch that will let the camera power on, but which I could use to control the camera's actual reflector. All my current smart switches are Lutron Casetas, which I love, but I don't think they will work well enough for this app and they are more expensive than what I would like to spend, because this is not just a normal light. Any recommendations are much appreciated! Edit: I should add that the Lutron Aurora switch looks perfect, but I'm not sure if I can connect this directly to control the light exposed in the HomeKit?
