I'm still on the classic app and have yet been "invited" to migrate to the new smartthings account.
To be clear, I saw this on the "non-scene" one (the cheaper of the two the OP listed).

In for one scene switch - dimming function good for the back porch! Thanks OP

Nice post OP.

BTW, can the dimmer switch just be used as an on/off switch? I don't see a dimmer button on the switch so since they're the same price, I'd rather just order all dimmers and selectively enable/disable the feature depending on what it's controlling.

Dim using an app, which will require a hub.

Such a good price. They were regularly selling for 49 dollars for the one with the scene control (I have them always in my cart to look for price change on a daily basis) Bought a few right before the OP made the post!

I have a smartthings hub. I just wanted to make sure it could be disabled since I don't want someone to be able to dim a bathroom fan for example.

Yes you can. I was also not sure how it would work based on pictures, but it's very simple:
- A quick press on the top (bottom) part turns the light on (off)
- A long press on the top (bottom) part increases (decreases) intensity

Honestly, it works very well, super natural. I know people swear by the Caseta, but I find them harder to use than having a paddle system like Inovelli with what are in the end just two big buttons. Plus, it gels nicely with normal non-smart switches. Oh, and it's much cheaper... The only downside is that it requires a neutral, which means I can't install them everywhere in my 100-year-old house

Just get it.

I haven't read the specifications for this device, but I'm thinking it wouldn't be rated for use with an inductive load such as a bath fan.

Great find OP! Picked up one dimmer and two non-dimmer. Considered getting all dimmers but there are some lights I can never see myself dimming (eg hallway) and didn’t want to mistakenly have someone dim these so didn’t make sense to pay additional $5 for it. Also I don’t think there’s a way to disable dimming functionality on the switch, if you’re thinking about it just get the standard on/off variant.

As an example with one of of the my "scenes".
At night at (X) pm, I have the following actions:
-all lights switches on the main floor turned off (even if already off)
-garage door closed (even if already closed)
-front door is locked (even if already locked)
-all door/window sensors are active
-motion sensors are active (except kitchen, in case someone needs a drink or midnight snack)
-If my Ring Pro doorbell detects motion, the front of porch light will turn on
-ecobee thermostat set to (X) temp

Endless "scenes" can be created with WebCoRE.
So you've only given a motion detector on your doorbell and time of day as triggers. Don't you think it *might* be useful to be able to trigger some of your fantastic scenes from a switch on the wall … i.e. a manually triggered scene?

Does anyone know if these work with the SmartThings v3 hub? It only lists v1 and v2 but the list may have been made prior to the release of v3.
