With 30 amps at 220v equal to 6600 watts, that is pulling 3300 watts through each relay. That makes each relay switching 30 amps. Of course these are max values and I don’t recommend operating anything near the max rating. Supplying the EZSwitch30 from a standard outlet, which is generally on a 15 amp breaker, you have more problems with the capability of that outlet than what the EZSwitch30 can switch. With 120V * 15 amps equal to 1800 watts. Drawing 1600 watts for the lights, along with whatever else may be on that outlet circuit, you may be at or exceeding the 15 amp capacity of that circuit. You do not need two EZSwitch30 devices.
