Scene Lighting


I am trying to set up scene lighting in my house and was going to go with the Insteon switchlinc 2476D's. The only problem is it looks like there is only a tabletop controller to active the scenes and not a handheld device. As I dont want to spend $300 on a pronto right now are there any other solutions? Do any other product lines have scene capable lighting that offer handheld controllers? Thank you.
Will the cheaper intermatic switches ($45) enable me to do scenes or do I have to buy the expensive switches ($95)?
