Hi forum,

I am after something so do the following. In my living room I will exclusively use lighting by lamps. Having just re-plastered, I really don't want to chase it all out to wire up what I am after. I realise I have overlooked this in planning somewhat.

I want to be able to activate a number of sockets via the existing mains light switch. That means I need a transmitter that can be mains powered.

plenty of people sell a set of remote power switches. But they are all activated via a remote which is not ideal. What I want is that same remote to be wired into the existing lighting circuit.

Since the lounge is the entrance to the house, I need to be able to have some light from the door switch, but really want to avoid a light in the exiting ceiling rose. I would rather that light is via turning on all the lamps simultaneously.

With this you install a transmitter in the back of a normal switch - the switch then becomes battery powered from the transmitter, and will need maintenance.

Into each socket you plug in the reciever switch module. You can install several wireless "circuits".

Its a bit long winded and expensive though. Cant you just use the switch on the lamp?

Have a look at the GET wireless scene setter. They are not cheap but really good kit.
