I would like to start using home automation equipment. I currently rent so I'm not looking to rewire the house or anything, but I thought I would start with wall switches and a few appliance modules. Here's my question: Nearly every light in my apartment is toggled between 2 switches. So for example my hallway has 2 switches, one at both ends. Both switches will turn the lights in the hallway on or off when switched. How do I integrate wall switch modules into this setup? Do I need a special switch or will any x10 switch work? Do I replace both wall switches? Is there a way to keep the toggle working for manual switching but still be able to run automated programs? Thank for any help.
