Find your options for replacing 1-6 Sierra light switches.
Keep the same look with Despard switches, or see alternative low volt options that will work in your Sierra low voltage lighting system, including toggle and rocker switches, as well as popular brands GE and Touch Plate. (Note that GE switches are on manufacturer backorder until Q1 2022.)
Easily find your options based on the number of switches in your cover plate:
A bracket mounted GE switch will sit vertically and have less black trim visible around the switch's edge (as in the above option that has no bracket and a snap-in style cover plate).
Another choice is to replace a single Sierra light switch with a low voltage toggle.
They fit standard toggle switch plates and will blend in with any other toggle light switches you have in your home.
These are slightly different from line voltage toggles, in that they are flipped up/down to turn the lights on/off, but when released the toggle returns to the center position (as shown).
For a modern look, replace your old switch with a low voltage Decora rocker switch from Leviton.
They're compatible with Sierra systems and fit standard rocker switch plates, which come in nearly 20 finishes.
These low voltage rockers sit in a neutral, centered position, and are rocked up/down to turn the lighting on/off, but once released will return to the centered position.
Touch Plate is another low volt lighting brand that can be used to replace Sierra.
The thing to note, is that your single Sierra light switch will be replaced with 2 Touch Plate buttons - one will be the ON and the other will be the OFF switch.

As in the previous example, replacing Sierra with Touch Plate requires that you double the number of switches.
The Sierra switch being replaced will become 2 Touch Plate buttons (separate on and off controls).
Upgrading to Touch Plate low volt switches means replacing each Sierra switch with a separate ON & OFF Touch Plate button.
Three GE brand light switches conveniently snap into the cover plate (no mounting hardware needed) and can replace your old Sierra switches.
Double the number of Sierra switches when integrating Touchplate into your system.
