    Love these switches for my dumb non dimming lights. C by GE App connected easily but it took a few minutes to figure out how to connect them to my EHCO for voice control. It requires enabling an Alexa skill. The instructions were lacking in this department. The only thing I don't like is that the toggle does not work directionally like a regular old fashion switch. The toggle is bi-directional. You can press up or down to make the light turn on or off. Example if the light is on and you press the toggle up the light will turn off and vis a versa. Problem mainly arises in the two switches that I have side by side. If one light is off and I want to turn the other light off, but accidently hit both switches down the light that was off turns on.

    Great option to control lights or outlets around your home. This allows you to not only use your smart phone, Alexa, Google, but also control multiple devices with this one. We set up up (with several other C by GE devices) so when we activate this switch (connect to one outside flight fixture) it turns on all my outside lights. Very great option improving our safety and security.

    I was looking for a switch that could be used to control lights while I am away and one that could be operated manually. This option fro GE fit the bill perfectly Now to see how it holds up to heavy use and how long it will last.

      Sorry to hear you were not able to get this switch recommissioned. Powercycling the switch using the pinhole under the faceplate usually resolves this if it doesn't initially find it on the app. If you need any assistance you can contact our tech support at 1-844-302-2943. -C by GE Support

    I bought four and I had to take two back because they cannot work with ceiling fans. I’m not an electrician but those fans have the same hot/neutral/ground wiring as any outlet. One Of the two installed and working has quit communicating with Alexa and will not communicate with Alexa no matter how many times I reset and/or reinstall all of the devices I have not been this disappointed in a purchase in a longtime.

    Installing the switch was very simple. One style issue is that there’s no indicator whether it’s on or off. No worries for me though as I run it on automation for an outdoor flood light. The automation works sunset to sunrise and spares me from wasting power when I forget to turn the switch off. The app needs work with regards to Google and HomeKit. Can’t seem to get them connected right. Hopefully updates to app will rectify these issues. Otherwise it’s great!

      Hi Magillacutty! Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you are expereincing these issues. Currently, only our smart lights (with the use of a C-Reach Smart Bridge device) can be used with HomeKit. As for seeing whether or not the switch is on or off, you should be able to see this in the app. Just go to the Home tab, locate your switch, and the on/off switch to the right should be blue if is powered on. Feel free to call us at 1-844-302-2943, email us at help@cbyge.com or live chat with us on cbyge.com if you have any questions. - C by GE Customer Support

    I really liked GE old smart switches. the app is a little hard to use at first. it had trouble connection and keep connection to the switches. Once connect things started working a lot better. Installation was easy and came with everything you needed!

    Does the job but difficult post install

    They work as advertised. Easy setup. Integrates with Alexa just fine. My complaint is, 1) it uses a lot of space in the electrical box. Instead of inserting the wires directly into the switch, it uses wire nuts that are bulky. 2) it comes with a single wall plate cover. If you're using it in a gang box with multiple switches, good luck trying to find a wall plate that will support the thickness that the switch adds from the wall. I have yet to find something compatible.

    Great for 3 wire systems, I had to return it because I was looking for a smart switch for my gas logs. Sadly they weren’t 3 wire. Great design and would work well in theory with the right system. Make sure you have a black wire, white wire, and ground wire.
