    We have a picnic area that is remote from our house. We have a 3way
    switch (weather proof) installed on an outbuilding that is about 150'
    from our back porch. It is on the side facing the back porch and is line
    of sight.

    Is there a remote control "switch" that I can attach to the switch at
    the outbuilding and turn on the lights at our picnic area from the
    porch? X-10?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    X-10 should work fine as long as your on the same electrical service and
    transformer.
     
  3. Protocol for operating switches, dimmers, etc using mains
    borne signalling. X10 can also be carried on RF (433MHz
    I think). There is a whole range of products based on this.

    I don't know if X-10™ has a 3way remote control switch, but i guess
    you can eliminate or bypass the 3way to regular switching or 24/7 power
    on and add remote control to it, I've seen battery operated switches &
    receptacles for ages., Make sure it can handle any extra lighting,
    cooking or utility loads you will normally use at the picnic spot.
    (Radios, Fans ect.)

    FYI Query Posted: ®X-10™ is a Company that specializes in economical
    remote control for Household Applications they even have incorporated
    computerized modules that command their X-10 units.
