I have a few Openhab things working but still a newb. I want to do theme lighting in the great room but have a kitchen with 3 switches wired as a 4way and there is no common at the boxes.
I’ve seen the Lutron switches but would like to keep the toggle user interface for consistency and asthetics.
I am thinking that I can do the same as Lutron with OpenHab via zwave. Basically I am thinking the switch sends a state change signal to Openhab via Zwave and then Openhab sends an update to the Zwave light controller. I can provide power to each switch separately and only use the switch to issue a state change to Openhab via zwave. I have power in the attic for the lights already and a junction there where I would add the zwave controller.
Please your help on if this can be a bullet proof solution or if I need to get an electrician to run commons to the boxes. We are getting ready to paint and do some remodeling so this it the right time to do it if I need to get them wiring done.
Also - if there are other forums that I should be checking I’d be happy to know that as well. I didn’t find much outside of Lutron recommendations.
