My house has an electrical system (for the ceiling lights) that i've been told is known as GE Low-Voltage Electrical. Basically, you don't have "regular"
light switches. The wall switches have a momentary contact that activates a relay in the ceiling which provides power to the light. Does anyone know
where I can find information (online) about this? (It stopped working entirely and I have to figure out why so I can turn on/off the lights).
Thanks in advance!

These GE systems are notorious for failing on a regular basis. If all of the switches have stopped working at the same time look for the main 24V transformer that feeds power to the remote switches and the relays. If you're handy with a voltmeter you can check to see if this is still supplying power. There is a company called Douglas Lighting Controls that makes a more reliable version of the relay, but requires a little reworking of your current wiring. Douglas Lighting Controls GE still sells the relays, though under part #RR7P and RR9P. An electrician can help you troubleshoot and repair your system. Look here for more info: GE Industrial Controls
