3 Way Smart Switch with Motion Activation
Installing the true 3 Way Smart Switch from Etekcity. As always we flash the switch with open source firmware, Tasmota for 100% local control. No soldering required to flash! After the setup we do a slight modification to add a motion sensor to solve an issue I had in our laundry room.
