    Need some electrical help

    I have an old Leviton control system, Looks like the below photo. The system needs to be replaced, but I have no idea where the brain is, any way of finding out without ripping apart my walls?

    Is it that same one that says Vizia RF on it? What do the buttons control?

          Vizia RF is their version of z-wave if remember correctly. If that is the case, that control unit my be the brain which wirelessly controls either plugs or other switches which are wired to control the ac power for the lights.

            I wish, there are only low voltage wires going into that box.

              looks like there is no central controller, the loads are wired to the switch

              you can have a portable remote that will send to the switch

                    Are the outside lights under the eaves? Has to control relays somewhere. Nothing around the breaker panel?

                      I doubt the controller is buried in a wall. It is probably in the attic or basement would be my guess if it is not in an obvious place like a closet. Maybe near the electrical panel?

                          Mine arent remote controlled, you actually have to press the buttons, and then the controller hidden somewhere makes a click sound. I have no basement, and the attic is a small crawl space, I doubt its in there.

                          The lights are in Aluminum outdoor box's, not in the eave's

                            The clicking is coming from somewhere in the wall, and I can not pinpoint it, driving me nuts now.
