Love the X10 line,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: X10 Pro Lamp Module 300W 120VAC, with AGC (Tools & Home Improvement)I love the X10 line... Just make sure you buy the correct modules for everything. Once I figured out exactly which ones I needed, and installed everything (very very easy install, more complicated figuring out which modules you need), I now have everything in my bedroom set up to turn on and off via remote. Its awesome (esp because my light-switch is a long walk from my bed) as I was able to set all my lamps, ceiling lights, and a white noise sound machine all to turn on and off via remote.
One note, if you use an energy efficient bulb, I would use the appliance module, because the lamp module is meant to be used on a bulb that can dim, and this doesn't work with the energy efficient bulbs (since they dont dim).
All in all, to set up my bedroom, I bought a lamp module (used for any regular type of lightbulb), 2 appliance modules (for energy efficient lamps), the Compact Powerhouse X10 Plug-In RF Wireless Tranceiver Module (works as a receiver for the remote and an appliance module), a X10 4 Unit Credit card Controller Key Chain Remote (very durable and works great), and the X10 WS467 Remote Control Light Dimmer Switch (for the ceiling light - A bit complicated, as my housekeeper cant seem to figure it out, but since I pretty much rely on the remote, it gets the job done).
All in all I think I spent around a hundred bucks, but it was def worth it. I love being able to read in bed and turn off all the lights without having to get up (no, I am in excellent shape, its just the placement of the ceiling light switch is really far from my bed).
