If you thought home automation was only for techies with a lot of experience, think again! You can run X10 home automation if you can connect in a table lamp and use a simple remote control! The common homeowner or renter can now schedule the operation of lights and appliances in their home. For an introduction, watch this video instruction below, and then we’ll look at the essential components of your X10 home automation system. (It’s obvious that you want one.)
Wireless signals aren’t required by all of our home automation products. Our MiniTimer Starter Kit triggers modules linked to lamps and other appliances by sending signals directly over existing powerlines. (See LM465, LM15A, AM466, and AM486 for more information.) The MiniTimer Manage Kit is simply an alarm clock that can control all of your home’s appliances! To set it up, all you have to do is take it out of the box and plug it in. That’s all there is to it! It only takes a few minutes.
The KR19A Keychain Remote, as well as a Transceiver (TM751) and Incandescent Lamp Module, are included in the X10 Wireless Starter Kit (LM465). Although you will need to plug in two components with this kit, the setup is still very straightforward.
The Wireless Transceiver (TM751) receives wireless RF signals from wireless remotes like our Slimline Switch (SS13A) and sends them through existing powerlines, triggering modules on your lamps and other appliances. The signal can switch them on or off, as well as dim them (even if they don’t have dimming built-in). The transceiver can hold a single dimmable incandescent light as well as an additional object that may be turned on and off using the remote.
Driveway Sensor Alert
Our Driveway Sensor Alert Kit (discontinued) is one of our most popular starter kits, allowing you to be notified whenever someone enters your driveway, porch, yard, or entry door. You could even use it to track the arrival of your mail or FedEx package!
The combination of minimal set-up and great functionality is a winning combination. The X10 Wireless Transceiver (TM751) is included in the package, allowing you to use it with any of our other X10 Home Automation Kits and Products.
