There's currently no 2-way serial driver for relay modules.

Control4 has contact/relay extenders, which provide 4 contact inputs and 4 relay outputs, and communicate either over ethernet or zigbee.

Actually..I was reading the manual and it said you are able to control it with 1-way serial commands. So it is technically possible, but would be weird programming. You would have to make a fake TV or something with serial commands. Then program all the serial commands for the relay module in as custom commands. Then you would need to have your program send those codes through the TV.

Sounds like you're wanting to do centralized lighting. I'm guessing a relay module won't be able to handle the power that lighting would require, and Control4 doesn't recommend ganging a bunch of dimmers in a single location.

There's not a real good solution for that ATM.

Ryan is correct,

But if you gang a bunch together in different closets / space them throughout the house - it should work. I don't remember the exact numbers - but I'd guess around 10 per location... keep it under that and they should work for ya.
