In the process of turning part of our 3-car garage into a workshop; one little bit I’ve completed is to re-do the drywall on a post that supports the garage roof. It had a switch and outlet on the post. I re-did the drywall (thanks, ETS EC 125/150!), painted it, and now have installed a 2-inch deep 2-gang outlet box on the post. Today I added back an outlet, and replaced the old switch with a Leviton HomeKit smart switch that works with the Apple/Siri/HomePod environment.
I’m going to add a remote smart switch so I can control the main garage lights from the door out to the garage from the laundry room. That way all the garage lighting can be controlled from that door manually, or voice-controlled, in addition to manual switching at the post.
I’m very pleased with how well it works.
I was going to use Lutron Caséta switches, but prefer the “normal” look of the Leviton Decora switches.
It looks like this system is going to work well enough I will want remote voice-controlled switches for the main rooms and outside lights as well.
You can control by room, by zone, or by specific switch.
