I've been reading on AVS, but I haven't found what I'm looking for, so I'll just ask it outright.
Trying for a very simple setup. I moved, old theater room had to stay behind. I'm remodeling a room in my new house to make into theater room. I just want to be able to turn the lights on and off and dim them from my seat. I don't really even care about preset scenes. I want to use the same universal remote that controls all the theater gear. I've used harmony universal remotes in the past and been happy - their newest offering looks like a good option, but I don't have to have a harmony.
Two lighting circuits would be nice, but if it matters, putting all of the lights on one switch is ok too. I've found products like the Mi Casa Verde veralite, but that seems like overkill for one room. If there's a cheaper, easier option, that's what I'm looking for. I bought 6 halogen fixtures for the soffits - they were on clearance, and I couldn't resist. Then I found out that the newest Harmony remote can control phillips hue lights. Am I better off buying new fixtures and Hue lightbulbs (might cost more than veralite), or is there a better option?
Thanks in advance!
