Any suggestions on good Z-Wave dimmers that work well with the 890/1000?
What are your main reasons for updating? Is it simply the cool factor or do you see any improved operation? I am a bit concerned about how easy it is to change channels, etc. without the hard buttons. It will drive me crazy if it takes twice as long to find and execute the major functions such as mute, pause, FF, rewind, skip, etc.
I also spent time on the phone with smarthomeusa.com today at lunch and they suggested to wait until mid February when Leviton comes out with their entire linup of Z-wave dimmers. They are supposed to be about $75 and have a lot of the normal Leviton features such as LED on the sides and remember previous setting etc. Mid February meets my construction schedule and if they are late, I will put in dummy units until they are released.
