The switches are AC power not DC you need to have something with an output of 16vac at 1000ma.

VAC = Volts Alternating current
MA = Milli-amps
DC = Direct Current

A wall-wart would work for just what you need you can find them at radio shack.

ok i got a really cheap way to fix your problem and any body that runs on 22v volts can do this.

Warning this dose involve the use of electricity!!

1. turn off power the the outlet
2. take off the face plate and take the outlet out of the box
their should be 4 wires a red one a black one a white one and a green or copper one
remove the wires from the outlet.
3. dose your outlet look like this? http://www.gwarreninc.com/images/safety-hazards/large/safe-grounded-three-prong-outlet-21ae.jpg if not get one.
4. reattach the black and white and green wires to the outlet

You now have 110 volts at your ready

Just to clue you in i am studying to be an electrician so im not talking out my rear on this one.


P.S.

if you don't have a white wire goto your local home center get the length you need and run the wire back to your main panel. turnoff the main breaker and take off the panel cover run the white wire to where either the white wires are or where your copper or green wires are. put everything back.

mark the outlet that it is 110 not 220.  should cost about 10.00 or less.


let us know how you do

vac (volts Alternating Current)
