Need a wall switch, can you recommend?

Hi guys, I am looking for a wall switch for a client that has a timer and preset dimmer capabilities integrated together that I need for a porch light. UPB is not applicable in this application as I am looking for something in the 50-100 dollar range. Has anybody ever seen anything like this?

Thanks

I ran into the same problem. Ended up using an X-10 unit. The switch has a built in dimmer and local control. I used an external mini timer for the timer function. It's been in for a while with zero complaints or problems.
The switch and timer where around $70.00.

Boy Tim, you don't ask for too much now do you?

"Price, Quality, Service... Pick any two" comes to mind!

x 10 is the only one I can think of. Other wise you might have to use an Aube timer with the dimmer on the load side

Yeah, I knew it was a tall order for that price range. Just trying to be sensitive to this guys budget and wondering if you guys had heard of such a creature out there on the market. I will probably wind up going to x10 like billy suggested.

A switch from PCS which is a UPB developer has a count down delay with dimming capabilities. No additional timer would be needed but it would be around a hundred.
