X-10 is a home automation standard that developed in the 1980-90s, however, it remains a cheap and simple system that can be used today.
Some of our X-10 equipment is over 20 years old, and it works as well now as it did when installed.
The following pages explain the:
- Types of X-10 modules available
- Photos of X-10 modules
- Uses of X-10 modules
A separate main menu link provides technical details on how I have modified 115V USA X-10 modules to operate at the UK's 230V.
While more modern protocols have been introduces, we have found that X-10 signalling is more reliable than Wi-Fi controlled switches that we are also using.
