We’re installing a number of Hue in-ceiling cans plus lighting strips throughout a new kitchen. I’m looking at Inovelli’s as the switches, given the ability to turn off the relay but still have the air gap in case that’s needed (feels like best of both worlds).
I’m seeing some people say that the dimmer switches will not provide 100% power, even with the relay off, so some smart bulbs act wonky as a result. Is that true?
If the dimmer switches are set to on/off (but setting the dimmer level to 0/99), will that provide better compatibility with smart bulbs?
If I just go with pure On/Off switches, can I approximate dimming ability by holding down the up or down paddle (I’m using Hubitat+Home Assistant+Homekit, so I’m pretty sure I can make the software side happen if the hardware supports it)?
Basically, trying to decide if the dimmer switch is the way to go with Hue bulbs, or whether to just use on/off switches and hack dimming together on the software/scene side.
