Guidance with x10bto control 110v landscape lights
« on: May 24, 2016, 10:56:27 PM »

I plan to install 9 or 10 different 110v landscape lights to illuminate my very tall palm trees (thus the need for 110v; 12v lights won't reach high enough). 

I plan to supply them with one 12/2 cable run, and I'll use an xps4 switch to control them all; i will probably use led bulbs, but I may use cfls.

Does this sound ok? Should I use an xpfm module instead?

The XPS4 will work with both inductive and resistive loads according to the documentation.  It is supposed to be a new version of the XPS3 which I use in a few locations (both for lights and for fans).  This configuration should work fine for what you are looking at as long as you don't exceed the max load.  All I see is that it has a 20A relay, so that probably means the max load is 20A, but it would be good to verify that. | About X10 | X10 Security Systems | Cameras| Package Deals
