" ...  They are easy to install, they fit nicely in the J-boxes, they look nice once the switch plate goes on, they connect quickly and easily to the home's Wifi via Martin Jerry's SmartLife app -- and, as an added bonus, the app even remembers all the details of your WiFi setup, and pre-fills everything in (including the password) when go to set up another switch. ... The only way they could make this any easier would be if they came to my home and installed the things for me.  ...  "

" ...  I had already replaced my old incandescent bulbs with energy saving LED's but I really wanted to control them with Alexa, and these dimmer switches were exactly what I needed. ... Once installed, my Amazon Echo Plus discovered the switch immediately and is able to turn the lights on and off, or set to any desired brightness level between 1-100.  ...  "
comment
" ...  After install I realized I really don't need smart 3 way switches in any of my locations because that was the whole reason I got smart switches to use google voice and can be anywhere in the rooms to turn on and off lights and could have saved lots of $'s.  ...  "

" ...  On one of my smaller dual gang boxes I cut out the back hole slightly larger with a dremel and fed the hard wires back into the wall space but to stay in code I left the wire nuts in the gang box at top and bottom and there was just enough room to make it work since most of the romex hard wire was not in the box anymore. ... They don't make a dual gang box switch covers that snap fits on as snuggly as a single switch plate cover, that is my only complaint because all my switches I replaced are 2 gang box.  ...  "
