I had planned on picking up an Insteon 2413s to simply control a dimmer switch (2476d) and my fireplace(2450).
My concern however is that at some point I also want to be able to add on such that I can disable a receptable based on a contact status. I am trying to prevent the pump in the washing machine in my basement from being able to overflow the sewage pit in the basement floor. I don't believe the toliet or shower, I plan to put in can as they are only gravity fed, however the washing machine can and has, fortunately when my basement was unfinished.
I was going to control the 2413 with a Global Cache unit and irule for the lighting etc, but I wondered if it would be insufficient for the secondary project. It would need to be programmed to perform its task (turn off receptacle), when a float in the pit, triggered a closure on another device.
Any thoughts or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
