X10 Basics



X10 Protocol Basics: Wireless & Wired

Wireless Home AutomationWireless: The heartbeat of a wireless X10 Home Automation set-up is the Wireless Transceiver (TM751). The Transceiver receives Wireless RF signals from wireless remotes like a Slimline Switch (SS13A) then sends that signal through your homes existing powerlines (sounds like magic huh?) then triggers modules that are attached to your lamps and appliances (LM465, LM15A, AM466, AM486). This signal then turns them off, on or dims them to a level you choose.

 

Wired Home AutomationWired: With a kit like the MiniTimer Starter Kit it directly sends a signal through the existing powerline which triggers modules that are attached to your lamps and appliances (LM465, LM15A, AM466, AM486). This signal then turns them off, on or dims them to a level you choose.
