What kind of RF filters are in the line (power cord)? Or are you dumping
the energy into your house wiring. I have a Plug-N-Power system (Radio
Shack) that is a carrier current-controlled switch that I got from Radio
Shack. The RF really screws up the action on those controllers. I have a
curio cabinet with a light and it messes with that controller even though it
has a surge suppressor. They don't filter out RF, do they?
