I quickly sketched my main bathroom scheme with the main switch and wondered what to do to make it smarter. I have 5 switches in a box with 4 gangs (color code on the sketch). I could use a single pole for the main light, DimmerSwitch for each shower / toilet light (they currently have dimmers) and then I could either ** Combine the 2 fans in one switch, or make a double rocker. ** * My wife tends to use both fans when taking a shower. * I'll pick up some Aqara sensors and buttons and see that they have a single pole and a double rocker - I want to have a dimmer switch to do everything the same. I use a Meross dimmer in the kitchen, but I have ZERO other smart switches. ** It would be weird to mix Aqara and Meross (dimmers) - ** it should work well together in HomeKit with Aqara Hub. * I'm going to add a few Aqara switch buttons in the bedroom, and the Aqara switches (should) act as a hub repeater *. ** I don't think I see a single brand that hosts everything and I notice that the Meross buttons are sometimes slow, so having the main switch like Aqara (Zigbee) may seem faster. ** I think one automation I could have is to turn on the shower light at 50% when the work alarm goes out, then to have the light power at 75-100% after 5 minutes and a humidity sensor could hit with the foot fan (s) if it reaches a certain level.
