Not yet mate, though I'm sure systems like that will be getting more common as home automation gets more popular.

We installed one for lake lights and fountains.
1.5 SWA to each of the 4 points, worked really well.
Only problems we encountered were,

Hand set went wrong a week after install. (Byron replaced F.O.C)
interferance from existing system in the house.(Door bell turned fountains on)
initial concerns about 13A max. (Not an issue when sums done!!)

We will definately use again as the after sales service was excellent, as was the ease of installation.

Have you used the sms sender before mate? they were about £80 when i first installed the sockets and lights at home a couple of years ago. I have sourced one for around £20 now so it well worth the money for when we are away for the fishtank lights etc

Yes I've installed a couple. My observations are:

1. The remote "steps" round each number in turn - i.e. you can go from 1 to 2 but not 2 to 1

2. The cable gland "holes" are huge and I couldn't locate a decent gland to use to give reasonable mechanical "strength"

3. You can't accomodate SWA

4. Once installed very easy to set up

5. Limited range

Yes on the range, I am sure I read that there was an 'add on' booster???? we were able to terminate SWA within the stupid supplied glands and the terminate the banjo ed earths into a terminal block....pigs ear but worked ok.

Did look at the SMS receiver, interesting toy!!!!!
