Amazon is offering the GE Z-Wave Plus Wireless Smart Light Switch for $30.60 shipped. That’s good for $9 off the going rate as well as at other retailers like Home Depot, matches our previous mention and returns the price to an Amazon all-time low. Rated 3.9/5 stars.  

GE’s smart light switch requires a hub in order to bring smartphone and voice control to your home’s lighting. If you don’t already have a Z-Wave compatible device, our top entry-level pick is the Samsung SmartThings hub. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive system, we couldn’t recommend Abode enough for both smart home control and security.

GE Z-Wave Plus Smart light switch features:

  • Wirelessly control on/off functions of overhead lighting with your mobile device or computer using any Z-Wave certified gateway.
  • Works well with all LED, CFL, halogen, and incandescent bulbs and other devices. It must be connected to a supported hub in order to interact with the Amazon Alexa.
  • Up to 50% improved wireless range, 250% faster processor, 400% more memory and energy efficiency over Z-Wave Classic products.
  • Requires in-wall installation with hard-wired connections – neutral wire required. Includes white and light almond paddles that will match most standard wall plates (wall plate not included).
