Light switches stopped working

I have odd light switches in my home, that have been there since I moved in. I have also been told we have low wattage wiring, with that said, can anyone suggest why all the light switches quit working tonight? Outlets still work, and the few traditional light switches are working just fine.

Might want to google the words...

low voltage light switches

Then click on images. Look at the pictures. If you see any that look like your switches, post the link here.

How old is the house?

Some old houses had relay controlled lighting,
Is this what you mean ?
If so, it complicates things,
But explains why several dont work.
Need more info !
