    I'm about a month away from completion of my HT, and have all my lights in where i want them. I wired them all into switches, but now i want to do a crestron system and want to tie that into lighting

    I know that smarthome has their x10 that you can just replace a regular switch with their wirelessly controlled switch, but will that be able to be linked to my crestron?

    if not could someone give me advise on what i'd need to get from crestron for lighting control? I will need to contrl 4 zones.


    Thanks,
    Andrew

    Andrew, I've got to say I know virtually nothing about the Crestron line... but as I understand it, many people use the Ocelot to integrate X-10 with other automation systems. You might need to do some reading to see if this is something that might help:

    Additionally, you might want to just browse through here:
