    Do you know how you will detect when all six bulbs are on? What controls which bulbs are on?

    You can control the bulbs with a mechanical or solid-state relay.

    You can use ST mirco-controller and ST relays for switching.

    I have that circuit working in my basement right now. There are 6 bulbs on the shelf and they're all off. Of course they're also still in their boxes.

    Maybe not what you want, but it meets all the criteria you've given.
