For switches...(and many other things)

https://www.getzooz.com/

https://inovelli.com/

Inovelli being my preference, for no real reason other than I asked a support question about a complex 4-way circuit where line and load were in separate boxes on a Sunday and the president got back to me that evening.

I have both and both are great.

The in box controllers are limiting. I have an aeotec one and even in a simple single pole switch, it was a pain to have to find different gauge of wire to jump to the switch and then cram it all behind the switch. The physical toggle position also becomes meaningless which bothers my OCD as well.

The switches above can be used in 3-way, 4-way without having to replace all the switches, can be automated for multiple taps etc...

Ya I reversed course on Shelly, I don't want to do that much wiring. I looked a lot at Zooz but damn they're pricy. For now I decided to pick up a couple of these

https://www.kasasmart.com/us/product...t-switch-hs200

Going to start with my exterior and garage light switches to see how I like them. The reviews I've read are all great and I like how they don't require a hub. $15 each on Amazon, so even if they're crap oh well, I'll bite the bullet on Zooz then and swap them out

About Kasa switches...

I had two Kasa switches and one smart plug in my old house. Worked great on the app. Even remotely.

I recently moved and reinstalled them in the new house and they work like 5% of the time. Might a user problem and not a hardware problem, but I used them flawlessly before so not sure what the problem is.

How's the signal around the devices?
I have a couple of older CE smart plugs that just wouldn't work on one wall till I upgraded my wifi.

It could be that, but the router is closer to the smart plug in this new house compared to the old house.

I plan on updating the router and getting extenders at some point, but I also want about 1,000 other things at the same time, like a new PC

The Kasa switches can be a bit hit or miss. The integration worked for me for a while but then some switches keep being dropped in home assistant. I switched them to a config file and it seems to work with fixed IP addresses assigned to each switch.

I've had really good luck with these, they've worked flawlessly.
