And the real product pictures now:
Short demo of touch functionality (will post later on the bluetooth mesh network functionality):
Sorry for the solder bridge replacing the R20 inrush current limiting resistor..that's just temporary until I get the real component . And yes, the capacitor across the bulb is still needed but it's a very small one of 0.1uF/250Vac and it should fit near the light bulb on the ceiling (only one is needed if there are two light bulbs on the same circuit).
The aluminum foil wrapped around that sponge is to "extend" the capacitive sensor so that it reaches the front plate fake plastic button. The 3d printed clear plastic around it is to hold it in place and also to spread the small leds light.
Everything is custom made except for the front plastics.

Have you run across any other parts that might fit the UB20M role?
The UB20M is hard to beat. But there's another sub-nanoamp option: https://www.vishay.com/docs/66597/sip32431.pdf
@Mr_sensor said in Easy/Newbie PCB for MySensors:
Can I have the pcb in the first shed also working as an extender, so the second pcb will be able to send out topics to the gateway as well? What to add to my code to achieve that?
you must program it to be a repeater. Of course it will need to have radio on all the time, so it cannot be battery-powered.
