One of the ceiling fixtures takes 8 bulbs, and the previous tenant had 25 watt bulbs in it.
I would like to hang small 2 small chandeliers (using 8 small ‚Äúersatz-candle‚Äù bulbs) in two other rooms, and control them all with seperate dimmers and timers.
I have never seen a combination unit, so will take any suggestions if they exist. (just looked at x-10, still sorting out the costs...)
This is a tenement rental apartment in NYC, so doing a "surface mount" (over the original single plate/receptacle box) with the two replacement switch units would be fine, as carving up the walls for an additional in-the-wall switch and receptacle box and plate might be more landlord-aggravating than it's worth.
I know the first thing is to locate and turn off the appropriate fuse/breaker for safety. (I have been told the whole apartment only carries 15-20 amps...) and I don't know the total load on the ceiling fixtures, though I imagine it can't be that high based on the above amperage of the apartment.
Any ideas appreciated. - Yehuda
