Select Switch Type

When you add a switch, you need to choose the type of switch you want to add.  Normally you would just select "Switch", but if you have low voltage wiring, you may want to select Paddle Switch if you have relays where On and Off are controlled with a momentary pulse of electricity on separate wires.

Switch - An X10 switch, or an IO board switch that has a single power line to turn the switch on and off.  

Paddle Switch - This is a switch that can be controlled by a digital IO board and requires a short pulse from an output on the IO board to turn it on, and a short pulse from a different output on the IO board to turn the device off.
