    Any one try these for Christmas lights?
    Would be cheaper than buying two outdoor timers.

    looks like I will give it a try, hope the neighbor doesn't have one. Looks like they have a number of codes to try out and signals to go through.

    I don't see anything about timers included in this package. You will need to be the timer or buy a X10 add on to control things by time. There are a number of different home automation systems out there in addition to X10. I would suggest checking them out before going down this road. Not saying X10 is bad but has strengths and weaknesses relative to the others. Ultimately it may not do all the things you want to do and one of the others will. With X10 sometimes you need to add a signal bridge between the 220V legs in your breaker box to make it all work.

    I was talking about the outdoor timers you would buy at home depot or lowes.

    I figured for $20 (shipping is only $5 to me) I could give them a try for the lights that are on the roof since it is impossible to climb up to the plug every night. This way I can just turn them on when I want to. Signal strenth only needs to go about 20 feet with a line of sight, I can stand outside to turn them on.

    Will have to wait and see how they work.

    luv products from smarthome.com. I have some of their other remote control modules, and they work great. I have one set on my wholehouse fan, house lights and they can all be controlled by a single command center...i'm sure you would not go wrong with this product if smarthome is selling them...

    I use an outdoor remote control unit I got at Home Depot for my christmas lights. Works great. Looks like a similar thing. I haven't tried the x10 thing yet. Looks like it could get pretty expensive, but fun.

    Sounds like a fun toy, the kids can have a blast burning out my bulbs turning the lights on and off every second.

    $29.99 now. Bummer.

    That's a downside about computers: it let's these guys notice their deal is too and change it.
