SmartThings + Vision Micro Switch

I have found a neat little alternative to full price switches online. I gave myself a budget of $20 per wall switch for the house and until I found something around that I was not gonna buy any. I just think that $50 for a wall switch is a little ridiculous in my opinion. These switches are still over my max budget but at least I found a reason for one of the partners here to buy it instead [bana0615]. He has a double switch in his house and they do not sell double smart switches anywhere. This micro controller solves his problem. The double switch relays will put me under budget for some locations in the house though with the ability to work for two switches at once.

Once it arrives in the mail I will let you know the process I went through to get it working with SmartThings if I can. I noticed that monoprice had this exact same stock image but the product fell of the face of their website. Its most likely the same product which has been reported to work fine with SmartThings. We shall see…
