Echo button near entry switch

Recommended Posts

here is my solution for mounting an Echo button near an entry switch without making any holes in the wall. 

It uses a double gang switch cover with one side as a blank

I did something like this except i used a smartthings button instead. With it being white and smaller it matched and fit the space a lot better but this works too and you don't have to have a smartthings hub. 😁

Right... direct trigger to Alexa and with the Echo Buttons Blue light to indicate pushed and Green light to indicate Alexa received


I also have tried Larry's SmartThings button and even a Flic button.


Lots of ways to do this... I was aiming for the Use Case of someone with limited dexterity having a "House On/ House Off" button

My little secret is that to get a toggle function, I needed to end to using WebCore anyway.... 🙂
