Hi
Worked in acustomers house that had these right through the house,supplied by a company called EIB from germany I think.All the switches were just fixed to the walls ,and were useable as two way if needed(also had mood settings and fully dimmable).
Customer also had remote control(a bit like a TV remote)that could be used to control the whole house.Pretty impressive stood in the front drive at night controling lighting in house and garden from the remote!.
Have seen the ones in B&Q but never used them.

just done a quick search on these i'd seen them advertised but never any prices. Looks like u need a switch (£76)and a receiver(96) all exc Vat so for a new 2 way lighting addition it would be £248 + vat as well as cable, light fitting and labour costs i'm sure there is a time and a place these would be of benefit but can't see it coming up that often??

Hi CTS

I have them in my house. Very good but as already quoted, they are not cheap.

Remote Control Dimmer Switches - Chrome Infra Red

Have a look ta these. There are other manufacturers I have seen and better systems.

Cheers

These are not wireless switches but remote control dimmers, these are made by varilight and reletively cheap, the remote control is only about 7 quid and a 1 gang dimmer about 25 quid, I have found they are a bit tempermental though, they have a tendancy to flicker and also sometimes when I turn the telly on or use another remote control and the lights come on
