buy at the Argentia store,
then return the items
and then visit another store to do price-match?
Just go to another store such as best buy to price match. Ask them to call the Mississauga West home depot to verify price and stock.

My Lutron Caseta dimmers on the otherhand have been flawless from day 1. Not a single glitch or dropped connection.
I had similar issues once in a while a few years ago but ever since I setup my Google wifi router I have had zero issues with my switches.

I have over 10 of them and have nothing but good things to say about them since Google Assistant came out.

I mean, you are on your own local network, unless you don't secure it, I can't see the problem someone else on the same network can pick it up. Those someone are probably members of your household.
This is also an advantage for me because sometimes my internet is down or when I moved and had no internet for a few days I connected turned on my router and my switches were accessible on the local network still.

My ecobee on the other hand didn't work with no internet and I had to adjust it standing in front of it with my hands like a peasant

I have the light switch. Works fine. The only small nuisance is that if there is a power failure, then the light switch loses its programming until it is able to connect to the internet again. So during the power outage if your UPS shuts down taking down the internet router, then your light switch will not follow the regular programming until you get back home to reset the router.

Has anyone had any luck finding the light switches at this price in London?

Any chance someone could upload a receipt showing the light switch price?

Wire the transformer to control a relay in a separate location which switches the millivolt on/off. Keep 110v as far away from the millivolt as possible to prevent a voltage from being induced.

If you don't understand this then call someone who is qualified to do electrical.

** the switch you are looking for doesn't exist. A powered switch can't run in the hot line only unless it is battery operated.
I believe there are code restrictions regarding the ability to turn on/off a fireplace from anyplace other than within sight. Don't quote me on that but it makes sense from a safety standpoint. On top of that I wouldn't trust a hub to never have an issue with turning something on when it isn't wanted.

for powering any heating source, e.g my baseboard, i am thinking to use a Nodemcu esp8266 to control a relay, so the baseboard can be controlled from openhab, is this a doable idea?

I picked up one plug last night at "50 Red Maple Rd, Richmond Hill, ON L4B 4K1" for $19. However, the price scanned was $49.99 and the manager overridden for $19 and limited it to one. Her reasoning was that this item is selling well at this location. There are 2 left last night.

Quite a few "switches" left in Halifax (Lacewood) for $19.

Note: the box says switch but the pic shows a plug.
