Firmware Version:

Hi, I recently installed the Smart Switch (HS200) and it works fine. However, while switching on/off with the App or Google Voice, there is a clicking sound. The light continues to work as normal, without any issues. Is that clilcking sound a source of concern or is it common? Thanks.

It's normal, the clicking is an internal relay that connects/disconnects the switch's line in wire to the load out wire.

@MikeP Thank you. Weirdly the Dimmer does not have this sound. It is just the Switch that seems to do it.

Right, dimmers need to be solid state because they vary the output voltage. Only switches can use an inexpensive on/off relay.
