If you are into home automation, this is a nice deal on some quality switches.
This switch uses Z-wave communication (not WiFi). Thus it will need a home automation hub such as SmartThings, Wink, a Raspberry Pi with a Z-Wave dongle, etc. in order to use it remotely.
With one of the above hubs, if the hub supports Google Home or Alexa, then you can control it by voice. It cannot be controlled without a hub.
This is the on/off relay switch only. This does not dim.
A neutral wire is required. Check your home wiring to make sure this will work for you.
This switch uses Decora/Decorator style faceplates and does not come with one. It will work in a multi-gang box which has multiple switches if you get the appropriately sized faceplate.
If you have three-way or four-way switches (2 or more switches) controlling the same light(s), you need one of these for the main switch, and GE 12723 add on switches for the additional switches (you can't use a regular switch for the extras). The add-on switch is currently $28.95 (12% off) although isn't really close to the lowest Amazon price of $24.69

The switch has a blue light. Normally this light is on when the switch is off (so you can see it in the dark to press it), but you can change this so that the light is on when the switch is on in your home automation hub, or from the switch itself. Rapidly press on 3 times then off 1 time to toggle the mode.
