Check out the Lutron Caseta stuff.  Plug-in switches/dimmers and remotes 
with all kinds of functions.

Our house has a big old $30K Lutron Homeworks Interactive lighting 
control system, basically three or four generations old at this point. 
Picked up a Hubitat Elevation.  My software project for the next few 
weeks (months...) is to figure out how to make it talk to the big 
Lutron.  They have something for the newer plutocratic Homeworks 
systems, and it talks to the Caseta stuff beautifully, but not the old 
creaky pre-Dreadnought versions.

Gradually turning our house into a Caseta/Z-wave test lab in addition to 
the old Lutron.
