While our previous list of some of the most popular X10 Home Automation products might get you started on your custom Home Automation System, they won’t allow you to build a complete system. With the addition of the next four items, though, you’ll be well on your way to twenty-first century technology controlling your entire home!
XPT-NS Wall Transmitter Base Unit
Any X10 Home Automation System requires a controller and a transmitter. The XPT-NS Wall Transmitter Base Unit provides 2-in-1 support for your system, since it is both a Controller and a Transmitter. This wall-mounted unit includes 7 unique multi-button keypads that can send X10 commands over your home’s existing electrical wiring. Supported commands include the following:
• All Lights On
• All Lights Off
The XPT unit can be mounted into any standard single-gang wall box; the keypads are then plugged onto the face of the XPT base unit, which needs to be wired to HOT and Neutral. Paired with any of 7 keypads, the XPT can control any of our X10 Receiver Modules.
SR227 SuperSocket Receptacle
As an alternative to a lamp module or appliance module, the SR227 SuperSocket Receptacle can replace any of your current wall receptacles.
Because the SR227 is nearly indistinguishable from a standard wall receptacle and cannot be simply unplugged, many of our customers prefer going this route.
The built-in look of the SR227 is only one of its many benefits. It includes one X10-controllable outlet as well as a pass-through outlet on the bottom. The SR227 provides remote control functionality with any X10 remotes.
LM465 Lamp Module
The LM465 Lamp Module is a basic lamp module, allowing you control any plug-in light fixture via any X10 controller. All you have to do is plug the LM465 into a wall receptacle and then plug the lamp into the module.
The LM465 also supports dimming functions. The LM465 comes in a 4-pack as well, allowing you to get one LM465 unit free, when you purchase 3.
For non-dimmable alternative lighting, the AM466 Appliance Module may be a better solution. The AM466 can also be purchased in a money-saving 4-pack or 6-pack and is available in a 2-pin version.
TM751 Wireless Transceiver Module
Rounding out the top 8 X10 Home Automation Products, the TM751 Wireless Transceiver Module is truly the heart and soul of your entire 10X system.
The TM751 picks up radio frequency signals from X10 remotes and then sends those signals through your home’s existing wiring to any programmed X10 modules. The TM751 also includes a built-in appliance module, similar to the AM486.
Once you have this basic unit in place, your custom Home Automation System can be expanded to include any number of lights or appliances throughout your home.
