    My main gameroom has several outlets that I wired to be controlled by wall switches during the finishing phase. Never imagined I'd outgrow it, but I am. My smaller gameroom does not have this luxury, so I was looking at this option.

    This way, I could turn the 4 pins in that room on with a switch like the other room right next to it. My only concern is it says Ideal for lamps, indoor and seasonal lighting. Worried about the amperage. My plan would be to get one of these and have that control a power strip with the 4 pins plugged into it. Would that be too much? I can't wire that room like the other without significant drywall work and I'd like to avoid that for now.

    Thanks for looking.

    I am assuming you have WiFi and a smart phone in your house? If so, I wouldn't spend any money on those, and just move up to wifi enabled devices. They are super convenient, and you can mix and match as you please.

    I'm trying to get something that matches the rest of the aesthetics and this one does.

    The specs on that says 12 amps. That would be cutting it close for some pins, especially when you power up 4 pins at a time. The surge may exceed 12 amps.

    I didn’t see the amp rating but it won’t be higher than 15a. You need to know what the “start” ,and “run” amps are of your machines, and what are other devices are plugged into that electrical line on that breaker. You wont be able to have more than 20a plugged into one breaker in your service panel. Typically lights have 15a cb, outlets are 20a, other stuff req 240 will be on 2pole 20a or 30a cb’s

    Gotcha thanks. I guess I'll just turn them on one at a time in that room. Thanks all.
