How It Works
X10 is a powerline carrier (PLC) signaling language that enables control signals to be transmitted anywhere in your house over your existing electrical lines. Simply plug in a controller (transmitter) at one electrical outlet and plug in a module (receiver) at any other outlet and you have remote control of that module! This enables you to have the remote and automated control of lights and appliances from anywhere on your property.
NOTE: Each appliance/light must be connected to the controller with a corresponding X10 module (sold separately).
The X10 Desktop Mini Controller is an X10 Plug-In Transmitter
A basic X10 system includes a Transmitter and a Receiver – both sold separately. Transmitters are control devices that send X10 signals through your home's electrical wiring to X10 Receivers. When a Receiver receives a command, it responds by turning a light, appliance or other electrical device On or Off, and sometimes Dim or Bright.
It's So Easy To Automate Your Home!
X10 started manufacturing home automation and security products in the late 70s and has been one of the smart home standards since its inception. X10 utilized powerline language to transmit control signals anywhere in your house over your existing 110V electrical lines, so you can control lights and appliances throughout your home without running new wires! Simply add a controller (transmitter) at one electrical outlet and add another module (receiver) at any other outlet and you have remote control of that module. Choose from plug-in, wired-in and wireless models. This enables you to have the remote and automated control of lights and appliances from anywhere on your property. The convenience and security of controlling all your lights and appliances from anywhere in your house is simple and inexpensive.
