IBM modules
« on: September 03, 2016, 11:49:40 pm »

I have used the IBM modules with my AHP. Are there any other company's equipment that will function with X-!0 systems

All these are now out of production but maybe still found on auction sites.
Radio Shack use to carry X10 modules. I believe call Powerhouse.
Heatkit had a line of X10 modules.
Leviton made X10 compatible modules.

Smarthome had a line of X10 clones and the early Insteon Modules could also have a Primary X10 address programmed into them. Some also could have an X10 Scene Address also added to it. The Smarthome modules used a different X10 protocol for dimming so they sometimes did not work exactly the same. All the Insteon ones with an X10 address where two way. They would answer an X10 status request and send an X10 command when locally changed.

The ACT A10 modules did X10 and had extra features not found in standard X10 modules.
They recently dropped their A10 line and I believe all their new stock was placed on eBay.
I can probably find some specific part numbers if you see something and need more information.

You can still get both new X10 and X10Pro modules. From the present X10 sales site and other Automation dealers.
