Recessed LED downlights with color selection via switch

Hi, I'm planning to install recessed LED wafer (can less) downlights in my basement drop ceiling. I notice that many suppliers have model options to select the light color (2700k to 5000k). I like that idea to change the color, but from a practical standpoint I probably wouldn't ever change due to the fact of manually accessing each control box. Feit has LED downlights that you can change the light color by toggling the wall switch (flip on/off within a few seconds to activate).

The only LED canless downlight dimmable fixture that seems to have this color selection via the wall switch is the Feit LEDR56HOJBX_6WYCA but this model has an integrated J-box (attached to wafer). A tethered J-box would be much better for my drop ceiling application. The tether would allow me to wire, install ceiling tiles, and simply plug the tether into the wafer, rather than hardwiring the electrical cable through the tile's 6" hole.

Does anyone know of a manufacturer selling canless LED downlights with switchable colors from the wall switch (not the control box) AND a tethered J-box?


Thanks for any suggestion!

Here's an option, but a bit spendy:

It's not wall switch selectable, but via a remote app.

Thanks for the reply and link.

Yeah, I noticed smart app systems as well and didn't really look more into them since it didn't seem practical or ever used (more remote tech that I can't see me ever using). I thought the wall switch toggle idea from Feit made a lot of sense which honestly is very practical and user friendly for the person actually using the room. I could still go with Feit using the integrated J-boxes but I'd rather not have the extra weight on the ceiling tile and I would like a quick way to lift and move a tile without disconnecting Romex cable.
