I've never been a big fan of lighting control built into the remotes. The problem is that they only support 1 particular brand. So if you use Z-wave, or Lutron, or whatever solution the remote control company chooses to implement you are good to go, otherwise you have to go another route. I wish that the CE industry could standardize an RF protocol for lighting similar to IR so that any RF device could be controlled by any RF capable remote. Unfortunately with all the diferent operating frequency's the chances are slim (though garage door manufacturers are currently doing it).
