We’re remodeling our home and have the opportunity to upgrade all of our switches and electrical outlets. I’m considering replacing all of our switches with Inovelli red series (on/off, dimmers, and fan+light), and I have a few questions before taking the plunge.
I have to buy 60+ switches to retrofit my house. Am I crazy for this? I’m keeping the attic switch and a couple closets “dumb” but otherwise replacing everything else with an Inovelli switch. Any reason I shouldn’t do this? Any unforeseen problems?
I’m defaulting to a dimmer switch instead of on/off for nearly every switch. For a couple dollars more, I figured I might as well upgrade. Any reason to choose on/off instead of a dimmer switch?
I have one area that has 2 boxes of 4 switches (8 total). 4 control inside lights; 4 control outdoor lights. Any reason I couldn’t put 8 switches close together? Any overheating issues?
Can there be any network or lag issues with this many switches? I’ve read and seen criticisms about a slight delay, but after seeing examples of this, it doesn’t seem like that significant. Should I have any concerns?
Any concerns with going all Inovelli? Any reason I should use another brand for any specific switch or lighting scenario?
If anyone else has retrofitted all of their switches with Inovelli, I’d love to hear how it’s going. Any unexpected issues? Anything I should prepare myself for?
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!
P.S. - I’ll be using a Hubitat hub as well.
