HomeKit compatible Swiss switches

Hi all,

Toying with the idea of integrating HomeKit switches to control lighting in my living room and dining room.

I’d like to replace the existing switches, rather than lots of bulbs. Does anyone make HomeKit switches I can swap straight into Swiss fitments?

Thanks!

Re: HomeKit compatible Swiss switches

Usually there's smart plugs that are compatible with Homekit in Lidl. They're like 15chf each or something.

Edit: Sorry reread your post and noticed this isn't what you asked.

If you've got a Philips Hue Hub or other zigbee wireless hub/gateway - you can control that with Homekit and there are loads of Zigbee-compatible solid-state switches that fit behind your existing switch and wire to it and allow the lamp to be controlled either by Homekit or the existing wall switch.

You can buy complete switches with the wall plate too (Aqara, for example) which also work using zigbee (with the Homekit-compatible Aqara gateway) but the switch plates won't be compatible with the standard swiss (Feller) wall plates.


There is a complete thread on this sort of thing so perhaps a mod could move this thread there?
