RF Light Switch Revisited

The RF light switch I ordered didn’t work on a 3 way circuit1. An alternative that will work is a bit more complicated:

  • Replace both2 3-way switches with X10 compatible 3-way switches.
  • Add an X10 base receiver.
  • Add an X10 remote keypad/switch for the additional switch.

I’m going to hold off on this for a while, but putting X10 throughout parts of the house is certainly tempting. :)
