    I have a question to anyone who might be able to help. I want to design a lighting control system that will shut off a set of A/C lights with the use of my 12v trigger on my Integra receiver. This is what I was thinking of: 12v trigger out to two paralleled bosch relays using a 12volt AC adapter for a power supply and ground, the trigger would be used to make the relays interupt the hot or neutral A/C wire. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Maybe I'm going about this the wrong way.
    Regards,

    Welcome. I did the same thing a while back. I used a 12v wall wart (pluged in the receiver) and a single relay (single pole, dual throw - SPDT). I would recommend a 120v relay with a 12volt coil. You can find them at Radio shack and other electronic type stores. Good luck
