Works well! I can use my light switches again!

I've recently invested heavily in Hue products (recessed 4" lights in my livingroom, outdoor porch light, motion sensors, and Hue Play Gradient behind my TV). Working at Crutchfield, I don't typically have a problem with using an app or voice to change things about my home regularly. However... I am married and have family over regularly. A smart home isn't very smart if only one person can operate it easily... I grabbed the two pack of these switches and installed them behind my two 3-way switches in my living room. Now, we can finally use our light switches again without cutting power to the smart bulbs we installed. The install went very smoothly after I read the instructions carefully. Note: for 3 way switches, you'll need to wire all 3 wires (excluding the ground wire) together with the included wire nuts. The size of the actual Hue switches are perfect as you'll easily be able to place them on the side of the gang box as I did even with a bunch of extra wire in your boxes. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it's battery bowered. Also, one cool feature is that you can toggle the light switch quickly (on/off) to cycle through Hue Scenes that you can setup yourself. This is kind of awkward using a normal switch like mine. However, if you have a toggle switch, I think it would be easier.
Pros: Easy to install, Can hook up two switches per Hue switch (double gang boxes), Can use my light switches again
Cons: Battery Powered :(
