Do they remember last setting when turned off at the switch? (LIFX Z)

Comment from Dennis Warner (on tiny smart home tour)
Did you use IFTTT for the weather notification? (Actually, a combo of things, with custom code running on an Indigo home automation server)

I have subscribed to your YOuTube channel and look forward to your postings.

I am based in Cape Town, South Africa.

I was intrigued by the Philips Hue dimmer HUE Tap episode.

Can you recommend, if it exists, a reading light I can mount on the ceiling with a similar dimmer/tap switch.

I am looking for something that has a similar impact as the reading lights one encounters on a typical airline cabin.

Of course the ceiling is quite higher, but a light that “pencils” down one side so it does not disturb my wife is my utopian solution.

Any info will help.
