This is the primary light switch/dimmer that I use throughout my house.  Extremely expensive, but works the best with LED bulbs, which I use exclusively.  I'll be testing these as soon as I receive my Almond+...

Dimmers are supported, but it depends a little bit on if they've added anything outside of the Z-Wave dimmer spec or not.

I was able to setup these Leviton dimmers and they work great, with one exception.  Adjusting the light using the dimmer switch does not update the light status on the touchscreen or the cloud service.

I guess this is the one referred to in your other thread?

Yes, this would be the same.  :-)

It's a bit of an expensive device, to say the least...  I'm actually moving towards using the Philips Hue in many of the places where I can automate the lighting and avoid using a light switch.   By the way, do you know of a good switch that can be used to control a Philips Hue light, without actually closing the circuit and preventing it from being turned on remotely?

Well, funny you'd mention that, as Philips just announced this - http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/28/philips-hue-white-bulb-and-switch/
Not cheap at $60, but a pretty interesting switch and still half the price or less of what you use now.
They have a new "non-colour" bulb as well that'll go for $40.

Lars, that's perfect!!!   Thank you for the heads-up!  Haha

And it doesn't even require wiring... or batteries!   Brilliant!
