A rank beginner question: With my ancient X10 controllers, I could manually turn off the X10 connected lamp. The next day, the X10 controller was still able to turn the lamp on.

 

Can the HS103 do that, too?

Manually turning a lamp off is the same thing as unscrewing the bulb halfway, no device can turn that back  on.

With the X10 you could turn the lamp off from the X10 controller, then turn the lamp back on by turning the switch off and back on, that would signal the wall adapter to restore power.
