As amazing as X10 Home Automation and X10 Home Security Systems are on their own, you can truly have the best of both worlds by combining the power of both! Allowing for seamless integration, you can easily build onto your existing Home Security System with a few Home Automation additions or vice versa. Alternatively, you can start out with a combination of both with the X10 Home Security Kit with Home Automation Bundle.
X10 Home Security Components
As an introduction to the amazing beauty of combining X10 Home Security with X10 Home Automation, we’ll take a look at the Home Security components of the combination bundle mentioned above. Like our other Home Security bundles, this one incorporates five layers of protection, starting with the Voice Dialer. The SC1200 X10 SecuriLINK Security Console will respond to any breach of your perimeter security or motion detectors by automatically calling your phone number (and up to 5 additional numbers you’ve selected), until someone answers.
After the Voice Dialer, the next layer of protection is Motion Detection. The tamper-resistant, pet-friendly MS18A X10 Smart Security Motion Detector comes with a detection range between 30 and 40 feet, just right for stairwells or hallways.
The third layer of X10 Home Security comes in the form of Perimeter Security Sensors, with 5 X10 DS12A Smart Door/Window Sensor units, each providing security for one entrypoint. The fourth layer of protection is Timed Lighting; this layer is fulfilled with 2 units each of the KR32A Smart Security Keyfob Remote and the LM465 Lamp Module. A second preventive step (and final layer of protection) is found in Security Signs and Decals.
X10 Home Automation Components
In addition to aspects of all 5 layers of Home Security protection, the X10 combination bundle incorporates several Home Automation components as well.
One is the MC10A White Plug-in Mini Controller, which allows you to control up to 8 X10 receivers. This compact controller can be plugged in anywhere in your home, allowing you to control any lights or appliances you have connected to your LM465 Lamp Module or another X10 device.
In addition to the MC10A, the WS12A Decorator Dimmer Switch allows you to control lighting with a wall-mounted switch. You can always extend the usefulness of these Home Automation features by adding more LM465 Lamp Module units or AM466 Appliance Modules, as well as additional controllers.
