As if X10 Home Security weren’t amazing enough, X10 Home Automation can be combined with it to provide you with innumerable possibilities! Imagine being able to remotely control any and all of your home’s lights and other appliances, put them on timers, dim lighting, and more — all from the comfort of wherever you are right now!
X10 Home Automation Basics
The three basic components of any X10 Home Automation System are a Controller, a Transceiver, and an Appliance Module. Setup is simple, requiring no professional skills.
The central point of any wireless X10 Home Automation System is the TM751 Wireless Transceiver. From your choice of wireless remote, the TM751 Transceiver picks up radio frequency signals and sends the signals to any connected modules, using your home’s existing electrical wiring. The connected light or appliance will then be turned on or off — or dimmed, in the case of dimmable lighting — as you choose.
X10 Home Automation Options
When it comes to controllers, we offer plenty of options — including both wireless and wired options. In addition to purchasing parts separately, another option is to purchase a kit such as the MiniTimer Starter Kit, which allows you to pre-program up to 64 timed events! (As a bonus, the MT14A MiniTimer doubles as an alarm clock.)
Like X10 Home Security Systems, the format of X10 Home Automation allows you to start small, with a kit like this Wireless KR19A KeyChain Remote Starter Kit, or go big with this MAX Home Automation Complete System or a combination Home Automation/Home Security System like this one. Of course, you could also start with something in between or even purchase individual items, one at a time, to build your own custom kit!
Many X10 Home Automation products are also sold in money-saving bundles, perfect for those setting up their own unique kit:
• AM466 X10 Appliance Module
• AM486 2-Pin Appliance Module
• LM465 Lamp Module
• WS467 Switch Kit
• KR19A Keychain Remote Control
• HR12A Hand Remote
• SS13A Slimline Switch
X10 Home Automation System setup is a breeze, too! Most products are ready for you to plug in and go! However big or small you start your X10 Home Automation adventure, you can always add more options by purchasing the WiFi Hub, which increases the flexibility of any X10 Home Automation System by allowing you to control it remotely, wherever you have WiFi connectivity.
And that’s really just the beginning! You can add X10 Home Security components, including indoor and outdoor cameras with audio-visual capabilities to your system, and you’ll see how X10 makes it possible for anyone to have a smart, well-connected, highly secure home without paying high monthly service fees!
