Converting halogen lights to LED smart lights.

First of all I would have done this vanilla and just changed the switch. But, there is no neutral wire in my switch so instead of going through all the trouble of adding a neutral wire, it’s just easier to remplace the existing halogen lights for some LED smart lights.

The two options I found were:

1-I have never heard of this company.

2-It requires a hub

I’m looking for recommandation Orion other products or experience on these ones.

For people who clicked on the links, the option to change your amazon page back to English is all the way at bottom of homepage lol.

There are a lot of random smart bulb/switch brands on amazon, some work with others but other times they will do weird thing if you put them together, nobody really knows.

I remember some smart switches doesn't need neutral but pass the tiny amount of power they use down ground.

Lutron Caseta does not use a neutral wire. Expensive but one of the best and reliable system.
