Do I think too much about a smart light bulb and a smart switch at the same time?

Cupertino, November 11, 2021

I'm buying a new house, and since I'll need a lot more lights, I think it's a good chance to take a fresh look at the space and see what I can use to save money on Phillips Hue. Here are my goals: - Native HomeKit support (I installed Hoobs, but it continues to turn on the lights and I want to get away from it) - Bonus if native support for Google Assistant I want to have smart bulbs (scenes, white exchange, etc.), but they have a smart switch (HomeKit) that won't kill power. This seems to be the main bottleneck, as a lot of smart switches still turn off the power to the bulbs when they turn them off. And it seems crazy to suggest putting a lid on * each light switch * to lock them, then putting a button next to them. Do I think about it too much, or is there something I just haven't found yet that solves all this? I was thinking of Nanoleaf light bulbs because they have a thread. I was hoping this would make things easier, but I still haven't found a Thread switch (Eve has one in the EU?) That I can get my hands on. Any help would be great.
