NOTE: Do yourself a huge favor and have a spot for your remote (with power for charging) close to the light switches!!!

I wish REALLY BADLY that I had done this. Instead, I have to walk to the back of the room by my equipment rack, grab the remote (and now I am standing where I can't hit the "Watch a Movie" button and have everything turn on), then walk to my seat, sit down, point the remote at the screen (to bounce the signal) and turn things on.

Had the remote had a little cubby shelf near the door/light switches, I could grab it and hit the button immediately upon entering the room.

Or you could do something crazy like just turning on the light switch with your finger at the door.
A ridiculous idea, i know.

You may have missed my point. I DO hit the light switch, but to turn on the gear in the room, I have to walk to the back of the room, literally the furthest spot away from the door. That is why I would want it need the door/light switch area. HE was saying that he wanted to turn everything on (including the lights) from the remote. wink

Yep, will have a cubby above the light switches. Great idea. Keep em coming!

Chess, finger switches are sooooo 1999. Lol. We will have the option for both cases with the lutron units. smile

Hey Nick, you ever think of a cool looking frame with velcro and putting a velcro sticker on the back of your remote? I guess that doesnt solve the charging situation though.

I opted for the 650 after I found out a friend had issues with the batts after a year with his harmony one.

Its a great touch to have lighting on a remote. When lighting commands are integrated with gear commands it is really a wowing affect. A cheap way to make an install feel professional.

The units mentioned in this thread can be retrofitted to any exising installation. You just have to watch for 2 wire or 3 wire requirements for install. The lutron units are affordable at $50 or so. Great value I think.

I like the idea of an RF remote, especially for locating gear out of sight. I can look at one down the road when all the other tweaks are exhausted. smile

A little ingenuity keeps the hobby fresh and fun smile command recliners interlocked with lighting would really be boss! grin but not gonna happen in my space.

Here in our place now. Stuff arrived safe and sound. The space will actally be a little smaller than originally thought, but still a healthy 14.5 x 22 x 8 estimated when complete. Have to alter drawings and consult with an engineer to remove a support post. Then relocate a heating oil tank to the garage. Work ahead just to get to the framing stages! The post on the partially demoed wall corner is the make or break. Fingers crossed. Oh well. So far:
