You’re correct a dual gang switched socket would not be able to control the AW12 micro modules.... Installing these behind the socket would work, but the switches on the sockets would only switch the outputs off or on only if the AW12 was in a on state already. I'm not aware of any faceplates that have momentary type switches that could be wired to these modules.
As far as controlling different items, then I went for a mix of plug in type modules, faceplates and micro modules. Some of the plug in types have local on-off buttons on them and others don't. http://www.uk-automation.co.uk/appli...le-p-1181.html For the control of other items such as some lamps etc that have hard to reach modules & plugs, then I just rely on RF control. One of these for example http://www.uk-automation.co.uk/marmi...on-p-1015.html with any of these http://www.uk-automation.co.uk/home-...c-140_111.html
Hope that helps.
