Please develop a wireless light switch that does not require a neutral. I would rather have smart switches than smart bulbs.
There’s an item on the wishlist for a wired smart switch but you would like a wireless one?
I don’t know if that is physically possible, unless the “smart” circuitry were battery powered.
Edit: Looks as if some of these exist but they drain a little power vampirically and use Z-Wave or another low power tech to reach a powered hub. They also don’t work well with LED bulbs?
No matter how the operational method (wired or wireless), the device must include a neutral conductor because the light you want to control also requires a neutral. The electric circuitry for a wall mounted light switch is essentially the same as a smart plug, so it should be easy to design and manufacture.
I’d love to see a Wyze remote light switch with both the older, traditional toggle (rather than the wide pad) and a relay in it (akin to the Shelly 1 channel) that would allow the switch to be turned on both remotely and manually.

Wall switch module (no neutral)
Please copy this device:
Simple installation, no neutral required.
I soon have to remove all the wyze bulbs and replace with Philips Hue because the wall switches are always turned off by my kids making the smart bulbs useless.
This GE looks like a much better template to follow. No hub required and a full switch replacement, works with any bulb and includes optional power sucker.
