X10 ActiveHome Computer Interface Module
Control Your Home from your PC with ActiveHome Using the included ActiveHome Software, the Home Computer Interface connects to your PC and sends signals over your existing house wiring to control lights and appliances connected to X10 modules.
The interface even works with the PC switched off. Once the interface has been programmed, the PC is no longer needed. Two standard AAA batteries retain the time, scheduled events and macros for up to 500 hours even if the power fails. You can even unplug the interface after programming it and plug it in someplace else in your home.
X10 Activehome Software (SW13A)
The powerful Windows (TM) based software included in the ActiveHome kit, will allow you to schedule your lights and appliances to run like clockwork. This easy to use software allows you to schedule daily events that turn lights and appliances on or off at set times or at dawn and dusk - even on specific dates.
You can easily use a remote control to activate individual devices in your home -- or with the Routine Feature, groups of devices. For example, you can use the remote to turn off the lights and television at night, without leaving your bed. At your computer, you can turn lights and appliances on or off in real-time (actually just a few seconds) while sitting at your computer.
"ActiveHome learns about your lifestyle!"
ActiveHome is designed for maximum flexibility and convenience, so turning a light or appliance on manually will not disrupt scheduled ActiveHome events. ActiveHome's LifeStyle Feature can learn the usage patterns of connected lights and appliances. When you're away, simply set ActiveHome to replay your actual Lifestyle pattern to make your home look occupied
Dawn and Dusk Feature
Rather than having your lights go on and off at the same time each day, you can use the Dawn and Dusk feature. Simply choose the nearest major city from the Geographic Location menu, and ActiveHome will calculate dawn and dusk times for your location each day. No matter what time of year, lights of your choice can be turned on or off at dawn or dusk.
