I was under the impression that controling ANYTHING other than incandescent
lights with the entry level X10 light switch (WS467) was a huge no no. I
personally haven't a clue, me think elektrick stuff good (but that's about
the extent of my electrical knowledge).
What's the downside of using the non-neutral wire class of switches on a

Ok, now I have to say it: Welcome to the list, Hector :)
Welcome to other recemt mew subscribers also. Looks like the list is
growing a little more slowly in the last few months. We lost 30 or so
subscribers when we switched to sourceforge. The total is now around 280.
What I noticed with controling ceiling fans is the cheap ones will hum on
various dim levels when controled by a X10 light light switch, but hum less
when controled with the more expensive inductive switch you found. The
more expensive fans do ok with either.
