DIY or Off the shelf Cable Dimmer

Hi Everyone,

i’m just wondering if anyone here has experience with DIY or Off the shelf inline- or cable-dimmer solutions (so the ones that are built in to the cable of a movable lamp which is then plugged into a power socket)

I’ve tested the IDINIO Z-WAVE ones, they work. They actually work pretty good. But i’ve been having lots of issues with my z-wave network starting from really high latency to the z-wave stick (aeotec) crashing the usb driver of my ubuntu machine (which results in me having to set up everything from scratch again, glad i’m doing a weekly backup…)

i wanted to test the IDINIO WIFI ones (TUYA), but i don’t want to rely on some cloud service and the chip inside is a Realtek one, so no possibility to flash tasmota or so…

do you know any other brands that sell smart switches or dimmers that go in the cord? if no i’ll probably go back to using shellys in their rather ugly case…
