Where have you look for the replacements?

Ask Your Own Electrical Question

From all the searching that I have done replacements don't exist! Leviton quit supporting those devices and with all the smart switches that are in production x10 systems are falling by the wayside! You may have no choice but convert to smart switches ? I going to bet that you don't have access to a circuit neutral in all locations ? And you have romex so you will have a difficult time adding one?

Haven’t opened all the switch boxes yet and they are romex. I found some of the 4 button 4 address switches on eBay and I found at least one of the all on all off switches from Sasan Electronics. Also looked on X10.com. If I have neutrals in each box what system should I use as replacements? Is Smart Switches the name brand?

Yes it is as brand name and a type!

Ask Your Own Electrical Question

Lutron , Philips, Leviton and others make them!

Thank you Mr.Smith

you really done need a neutral wire depending how your levitons are wire? You have to reconfigure your wires for example a 3 way uses two wires and a 4way uses three wires so you may have wires you do use!

Ask Your Own Electrical Question

I would go with the smart switches because X10 devices will disappear!
