Controlling Room Lights With Google Assistant


Standard Member

I currently have two google homes in the house and use it to control some Sonoff plugs for lighting.

I would like to investigate being able to turn the main room lights on / off and was looking some some advice on where to start.

I have two switches in the room (1 being a dimmer) and I do not want these replaced / removed. I don't want to use smart "bulbs" either as there are 12 LED G9's.

Is there anything i can add in my lighting circuit that will enable me to do it fairly easily, like a sonoff switch? I would prefer a WiFi connected device but if that's not available the could look at zwave / zigbee. I could look at setting up home assistant on my NAS too.

The Aeotec dimmer looks good but not sure it will fit behind my current switches. Do they work on a 2way lighting system?

You could use a Fibaro dimmer

Z-Wave Fibaro Universal Dimmer 2 250W

which are 2/3 wire modules and will work on 2 way lighting.

I cannot help with Sonoff as i do not believe that their products are safe to use. They claim that this is a Declaration of Conformity for their products:


Which it most definitely is not. This also makes their CE marking invalid. Hence my reluctance to either recommend or assist with any of their product lines.
