The "grouping" is easily handled by using an app that integrates / includes all of your other smart devices as well. Other than initial set up, I never go back to the device's proprietary app. I want it all together in one app.
I use the Google Home app, and it has all of my light switches. Wifi, Z-wave, and Zigbee. You can create groups of any devices you want within the app, regardless of what technology they are or who makes them.
