    Default Replacing X10 with zwave

    I've still a number of DIN mounted X10 switches and dimmers (AD10 / LD11's?) that I'd like to replace with zwave. Looking at these Qubino and Haseman units it would seem that these could be a direct replacement to the X10 unit with no re-wiring. I'm tempted by the Qubino ones - smaller and have addition of temp sensing and power monitoring - but does anyone have any experience of using them or any other Qubino / Haseman products? Reliable?

    I also found this post which is a Fibaro unit mounted inside a DIN enclosure which I think is what the Haseman unit is. It's not particularly tidy though as the cover can't be fitted as the Fibaro dimmer is too 'fat'.
