X10 RR501 Wireless Base Transceiver Module
Responds To RF & X10 Signals
If you want to control X10 modules with a wireless controller, plug in the X10 RR501 Wireless Base Transceiver Module. Unlike the TM751 transceiver, this RR501 model responds to both X10 and RF signals (not just RF), giving you versatile control over the transceiver's built-in appliance module, as well as your other X10 modules.
- Converts RF signals to X10 commands
- Built-in appliance module
- Controls up to 16 X10 receivers
- Sends status reports over the power line
- Plugs into a standard power outlet
How It Works
The RR501 transceiver module picks up radio frequency (RF) signals from X10 wireless remotes and then converts those signals into X10 commands, which are sent over your power lines. In addition to signaling other X10 receivers, the Base Transceiver Module provides a built-in appliance module, which responds to Unit Codes 1 to 9. Plug an appliance or light into the module's outlet to enable wireless control. The module can be controlled by various X10 powerline and X10 RF remotes.
X10 Transceivers Compared – PAT03/RR501 vs TM751
As two-way transceivers, the RR501 and PAT03 transceiver models (PAT03 sold separately) offer advanced features over the TM751 transceiver model (sold separately). The TM751's built-in appliance module can be controlled by RF signals only. In contrast, this RR501 model receives both RF signals and X10 powerline signals, allowing you to control the built-in module either wirelessly or over the powerline, and to receive status reports over the powerline.
Note: Use only one RF Base Transceiver Module or X10 Security Console (which also converts RF signals into X10 signals) per House Code. If more than one transceiver is used on the same House Code, X10 signal collisions may result.
The X10 Transceiver Module is an X10 Plug-In Transceiver
A basic wireless X10 system includes a Transmitter, a Transceiver and a Receiver – each sold separately. Wireless Transmitters are control devices that broadcast X10 radio frequency (RF) signals to Transceivers, which plugs into standard wall outlets. The Wireless Transceiver then converts the RF signal into an X10 signal and transmits it through your home's electrical wiring to X10 Receivers. When an X10 Receiver receives a command, it responds by turning a light, appliance or other electrical device On or Off, and sometimes Dim or Bright.
X10 Makes It So Easy To Automate Your Home!
X10 began manufacturing home automation and security products in the late 70s, establishing X10 as a smart home standard. X10 utilizes powerline technology to transmit control signals anywhere in your house over your existing electrical lines, so you can control lights and appliances throughout your home without running new wires! Have complete, automated control over lights and appliances from anywhere in your home with X10.
