Are HS200 switches safe to use with aluminum wiring in the walls?  I know you have to buy switches that are "AL" compatible when buying  a regular light switch if you have aluminum wiring in your house.

The ends of the HS200 wires are copper with nickel plating. If you have aluminum wiring I do not believe that would be safe. From what I gathered, there are special connectors that need to be used. I would consult a trained individual to be sure appropiate steps are taken to avoid any serious issues.
