Which Switch Should I select
« on: October 21, 2019, 02:03:30 PM »

Since I have more LED Lighbulbs now, I needed to change my X10 Switches.  So I bought a bunch of:
WS469 Push Button Relay Wall Switch

My HR12A PalmPad Remote Control can turn the lights on and off just fine.   However, My ActiveHome Pro seems to be a hit and miss.  Since the WS469 isn't listed in the options for a valid switch in ActiveHome Pro, is there a specific one I should use?   I've tried a few, but get mixed results.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Use the old style lights and pick and play with modules from that list.

The WS469 is a relay type switch.

I would try a WS13A or XPS3. As they are both relay type switches. Even though the switches icon in AHP will show a Decorator style switch.

I am not sure how it would react to a dimmer type definition and dim or brighten commands.
