breezer said:small, low voltage switches that operate 12v coil relays that switch the mains.
this way you can have 7 switches running from one small 8 core cable.(not thaty i have 7 switches, but it is possible

maplin do supply 4 plug insockets and a 4 gang remote control for said sockets, but i dont have one and dont want one.
If you think 7 switches on an 8 core is good, you have never seen dmx, 512 devices on 2 wires (i have it) now that is good (but not 512 devices, only 20 so far)

When you say you have it, in what sense? You have proc and overhead bars, a cyc and dimmer packs running off a ETC in the lounge?
