I use X10 switches and I use a Pronto to control them.

On one switch I have six bulbs at 60 watts each. No problem.


You can use those wall switches and they will work fine for basic controls that you will have to do individually, but if you want to create scenes for your HT, you will have to get the Switch-link switches. Those are expensive at about $85 each.


However they work great and are still much cheaper than the other hard wired systems.


If you have any other questions you can to to Remote Central and check out the X10 section there.
