Quick question on lighting.

Has anybody every used or hear any bad things about using solid state relays to control lights? any downfalls?

I don't see any real issues that would prevent this from working. Think of solid state relays as a non-dimmable version of the various X10 switches that are commonly available. There might be an issue with non-incandescent lights however so you might want to do some tests if this is the case.

I used them for this years ago, controlling an accessory outlet that I switched on and off, when the phone rang. Solid state made it a easy to control/condition the enable/disable.

They worked great, never had any issue, just have to mind the power ratings, but that's true of the regular relays and anything you connect to the AC bus.
