I currently have a X10 light switch, however it shuts itself off very often due to noise on the line. I'm looking to replace it with something that doesn't send the on/off signal via the electric lines - hence moving to Z-Wave (feel free to make recommendations).

In the process - I'm thinking of getting a Harmony Smart Control to also control (all my equip is in a equip room away from the home theater room)- does this also control the z-wave switches without need of any additional add -ons?
Also what's the diff between the Harmony Smart Control and the too be released Harmony Ultimate Hub?
Also feel free to advise/recommend other products if you feel it'll accomplish what I need

thx

No. For Z-Wave, you need to find yourself an old Harmony 890. Philips Hue is what the Ultimate/SmartControl Hub works with. Most other solutions are going to end up doing IR and/or powerline, which you are trying to avoid.

I've had the same issues with flaky X10. If I were in the market today, I'd probably go with Philips. For now, I'm still limping along with X10 as I have the past 15 years.

thanks, though I don't see any Philips Hue wall switches to control existing (fluorescent) light
