Just wanted to inject a thought her.  My experience with the X-10 system
results in the following observations:

X-10 units are noisy.  If you are using them in the house and you have
sensitive hearing they can be an annoyance.  However, I see no problem in a
garage environment.  Also, just a note, If you are putting any electric
motors on an X-10 unit, (including receptacles that you may plug an electric
drill, sander, or other tool), the standard X-10 module won't last.  I have
no experience with the modules designed for motor circuits, but I know they
are quite expensive.  Just my thoughts.  Hop it helps.
