I am adding more lights in my dining room and I don’t want to pull more wires to a new switch and add extra switches. I am planning to bypass the switch for some existing wires for one light, and add a little bit of wire from that to another location for extra lights. Hope this makes sense. Basically, I am making an existing wire permanently powered and want to add a wall switch to act as a remote control for the shelly 1 that I’ll be installed for different fixtures. I know there are some 1 gang 1 switch smart switches like those Martin Jerry ones that I can use it just as a “sensor” to control the shelly from home assistant. But since I am adding more fixtures and I want individual control, I would like to have a 1 gang 2/2+ button smart switches. I also found a DIY project called HA Switchplate which basically allows you to make a decora-sized control panel. It looks great but I love to maintain the physical tactile feeling of a mechanical switch(if that makes sense).
TLDR: I am looking for a 1 gang 2/2+ button smart switch (that’s doesn’t necessarily contain the relays to properly switch 110v) that’s using esp8266 (so I can flash it) to be used as a mains powered remote for anything home assistant.
Ps: I know I can 3d print an enclosure that fits a power supply like the IRM-03, a esp8288 and use some mechanical push buttons as input for the gpio pins to sense switch input. But I am looking for some commercially available products that I can purchase in quality and get with relative ease. Since I have way too many added lights that can only be switched on by remembering double, triple or sometimes quadruple taps on an existing but modified dumb switch.
