In a quest to keep home power usage at a minimum, I’ve started recording switch power consumption readings.
All results measured with a Kill-A-Watt power meter. Switches booted in factory default configuration with no devices connected.
I’ll update this post as I try other models. I won’t get in to details on the capabilities of each switch, but will link them to Amazon. (If you purchase off Amazon, I may earn a commission– thank you)
