 Recommendations for a smart light switch via Alexa - VxFan
The scenario is, the light switch in the kitchen is a PITA for a disabled person I know to easily switch on/off.
Yes, with a lot of work it could be moved, but I thought an easier and cheaper solution would be just to fit a smart switch and ask Alexa to operate it instead.

There is no neutral feed to the switch, just live and earth. I have seen however that some smart switches don't need a neutral feed.

I've seen some on eBay for around £11, but are they a fire waiting to happen by dodgy Chinese build quality?

What are you guys/gals out there using, and are they reliable?
