If that's the case, the X10 salesman was the worst ever because he said they didn't sell anything like that!
So I could set one of the buttons to control multiple lamp modules simply by having the lamp modules on the same channel?
You put the wireless wall switch where ever you like and it will control any X10 module. Such as a wall switch, lamp module, appliance module, ect.
But lets get back to what you originally asked. You want a switch that you can wire in at an existing switch box. For this application you will need a XPT base unit to wire into the wall and the switch plate that snap on to the front of the base. If you are only controlling that one outlet then you would get XP1 pad. You could go all the way up to 4 X10 codes from one transmitter base.
As far as the outlet goes you would want a SR227 wire-in X10 controlled outlet. Rated at 15amps, the top socket on the outlet is controlled by X10 and the bottom socket is always on. There is a 20amp version where both outlets are always controlled by the same X10 code.
So just to recap you need an XPT Base, XP1 pad, and a SR227 outlet to have a complete system.
Hope this helps!
