Buy a Dell 2724 Powerconnect. You can get them on eBay for under $100 and they rock.

Good luck finding a rack, they're tough to find here.

The other equipment shouldn't be too hard to find.

About the anything else....the sky is the limit with this stuff my friend. It is addicting.

Your electrician is having problems with 3 ways? I'm a DIY home idiot and with a little help, I was able to figure it out. As Dan has said before, it's not rocket science.

The problem is all the wires are pulled and electrician doesn't want a live/dead wire with inspection coming. I was getting change ordered to death so I left all the wiring as planned. On the single switches I can pop in a wireless dimmer. The C4 dealer said I would need the electrician to put in a power receptacle for all 2/3/5/6 button switches.

So yeah thanks on the 24port recommendation. Any others would be helpful or guidance would be helpful
