Slimline 4 Hotel
« on: November 02, 2008, 02:01:49 AM »

I want to instal a Slimline Switch SS13A in my 10 hotel rooms.  The 3 way + dim sounds great.  Guests can turn on/off/dim 3 lights from the door, bath or bedside.  What do I need for the lamps?   ???
Forgot 2 mention.  Each unit is an individual cabin each with its own breaker box.  About 10 feet apart. 
Lights I need to control R bedside lamp, bath lamp, and ceiling light.

The X10 web site should be helpful

To keep guests from accidentally controlling each others lights you might want to keep each cabin on a separate house code. So each cabin would need a transceiver (TM751), as many Slimline switches as you have locations for, probably a lamp module for bed light, and either WS467's/WS12s wall switches for your fixture lights UNLESS your bath light is also a fan. WS467/WS12 can dim, so should ONLY control incandescent lights. Use a WS13A  to control things that should not be dimmed, like fluorescent lights, fans, receptacles, etc. The WS13A needs a neutral to work.

I think you'll find that the SS13A is not physically robust enough for your intended application.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it doesn't work.
X10 on Windows is like that.
