How it Works!
X10 is a communications "language" that allows compatible products to talk to each other via the existing 110V electrical wiring in the building.
X10 Transmitter devices send a coded low voltage signal that is superimposed over the 110VAC current. Any X10 Receiver device plugged into the household 110V power supply will see this signal. However, the Receivers will only respond when it sees a signal that has its address. Up to 256 different addresses are available. If you want more than one device to respond to the same signal, simply set them to the same addresses.
X10 devices can be categorized into 3 distinct groups:
- Transmitter/Receivers (2 Way X10 devices)
