While there are many new names in the home automation world, X10 has been around for over half a century! The basic concept we started with decades ago still works, while we’ve of course ensured that compatibility continues while we adapt to the latest technology. If you’re new to X10 and wondering what sets us apart from other home-automation companies, we’d love to introduce you to our 5 core highlights: design simplicity, general compatibility, offline dependability, personal accessibility and overall affordability.
Your X10 system can be as minimalist or extensive as you desire, but regardless of what you prefer, you can still appreciate the simple modular design of X10. You decide on a sender and then add whatever receivers you desire. As you decide to automate additional household tasks, you can expand your system to include added receivers such as wall receptacles, appliance modules, and wall switches. Regardless of the number and types of elements you add, the basic simplicity of the system will not change.
Not only is your X10 system modular, allowing you to expand it as you desire, but new units are also compatible with older units. We even have a way for decades-old receivers to be able to interact with our latest units! In our world of constantly upgrading technology, you can be sure that your investment in X10 devices will be protected, allowing you to continue to use the units that you purchase today, well into the future.
X10 stands apart from most home automation systems, which require internet connections for any control of automated switches or units. While we realize that most of us utilize our WiFi connections for myriad household functions, we also know that internet connections can become temporarily disabled. When your home automation and home security systems depend on your internet connection, a lapse in connectivity can become even more frustrating than it would otherwise be. When you choose X10, you choose to not be at the mercy of your internet connection; instead, your standard controllers and receivers will still be operational, even if you have a disruption to your internet service.
If you can navigate our website and click to purchase your X10 technology, you should have no trouble installing and using it! The receivers already include the addresses set on the units and require no added software. Setup is easy and intuitive and takes only seconds.
The compatibility and modular aspects of X10 technology contribute to the affordability of our systems, since you can start small and build up, over time. Appliance and lamp modules typically start at under $20, making these products affordable for just about any budget.
All the facets of X10 described above relate not only to X10 home automation, but also to the integrated X10 home security products. You can get started by either building your own unique system or choosing from among several package deals.
