    Hi there,

    I currently have 3 lighting circuits in my HT controlled by 3 switches.
    Wall lights, In-floor lighting, Side lamps.

    I want to include control of these lights by remote controll, however I cant find multi channel IR reciever switches, they are all single channel.

    Does anyone know where I can get multi-channel units from?

    Thanks.

    look at Lutron range Graffic eye springs to mind (may need rewiring and ££££) also the "Varlight" units are available as 2 channel could combine 2 channels?
    Futronix
    Helvar
    and many more make lighting control Helvar DigiDim 4 is a 4 channel dimmer and expanable but will probably need rewiring in that room

    Thanks Hornydragon,

    Who sell the digidim? I found Helvers site and it looks just what I'm after, there are 3x 3+E T&E cabeles running from each switch to the central point where all the lights come back to so I might be able to use those cables.

    look at VEDA.co.uk for a local dealer, best bet is to contact VEDA direct (part of Armour PLC) and ask where you can see a demo.
