How to use empty space in a 3-gang wall plate to automate?

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

Hi everyone,

I am about to start my (probably expensive) Lutron Caseta journey to add this to our Homekit home. I have a 3-gang area and I am planning to consolidate 2 of the switches (as they do not need to be dimmers) with the Aqara double rocker. This opens up one slot for another device.

One idea was to put in a pico remote or some other "switch" and use it for something like "all lights off and activate the alarm system". What would be the best way to do that?

Thanks a lot!
