They’re not available in Europe and the UK at the time of writing, but General Electric’s smart home division has announced a few new products including a new smart switch and a new smart dimmer which works without a hub at all, there is no need for a separate hub or the requirement to link them with any smart home assistants.

There is a new dimmer which is powered by batteries, and doesn’t need to be screwed into a wall for mounting.
