need some quick guidance please, as I am about to make a 30+ switch purchase this week for our new construction home. I also need someone from Inovelli to PM me on how to buy these “naked” with no faceplates or fancy boxes!
— we are in the final stages of a new construction home, and the electrician will (soon) install any switches I give them, as long as “there aren’t numerous steps per switch” to-dos that have to be done above and beyond typical switch installations.
— neutral wires throughout entire house
My issue is twofold:
— “I” cannot be part of this install or be lingering around onsite (liability and COVID), as the home is not officially ours until we close on it. I am just able to dictate what gets installed during the build.
— there will be no internet access there until after we close, so no smart hubs will be installed until well-after we close.
Where I need your help:
— So, what I need is for them to be able to install a ton of Red Series switches (which almost all are dimmers, and mostly in 3-way, 4-way, and 5-way configurations) to work right now as normal “dumb” switches, NOT tied to any hub. They need to be able to physically wire them all up and make them work as normal switches would.
— Then later in June I will eventually pair them all to a hub (I have SmartThings and Hubitat… leaning to Hubitat to keep ALL these running locally) and make them work smart… the key here is for me to do this WITHOUT having to pull them out and change any of the wiring (will void my home warranty and the electrician’s work).
Is this possible to do? Thanks so much everyone!
