Question for Smart Home lighting knowledge folks....
I want to be able to control my outdoor flood lights via a hub ( I am currently using a Phillips hue light system with a 2nd gen hub for all of the 20 or so Hue lights inside and outside of my house). Is there a smart light switch that use to replace the existing on/off light switch that is currently controlling the outdoor flood lights? I want to be able to set them to turn on at dusk and off at dawn.

I wired a photocell in my eve lights. Works great,never have to touch the switch unless I want them off (like for Haloween, we weren't home).

CAD, can you post a link link to what I’m looking for, if there is such a thing?

Unless CAD can find something, I think you may in SOL. Phillips uses "Zigbee light link" protocal, which apparently is not compatible with regular zigbee light switches, that work with Wink or Smartthings.

Searching for "zigbee light link switch" does not come up with anything useful.

So, can you recommend a hub and smart light switch for me? My only experience in smart home technology is my current Phillips Hue setup.
