This is not really an openHAB questions, but maybe you can help me to get the right kind of device.
The scenario: my entry hall has 6 lights, right now “dumb” GU10 LED lamps, and a push button on the wall next to each door to switch the lights on or off. With each press on any one of the wall buttons the lights are toggled (quite audibly) by a relay in my fuse box. I believe this is a quite common setup in Germany for hallways.
I now want to be able to switch the lights on/off via openHAB, but I also want to retain the function of the existing buttons on the wall.
Is it possible to “simulate” the input (aka button press) to the relay with some openHAB controlled device?
Or should I replace the entire relay with something “smart”? Maybe some Tasmota flashed device which I can control via MQTT, but if that’s not possible I could also handle Z-Wave or Zigbee.
The second choice is probably better if I want to add a motion sensor and want to dim the lights according the the time of day. To be able to dim the light I would replace the dumb bulbs with some IKEA TRÅDFRI bulbs or something similar.
Any ideas? Thanks!
