Overview of X10 Remotes & Wireless Devices
X10 isn't just about Transmitters and Receivers. There are number of X10 RF Remotes and Wireless Devices that allow you to control your X10 Home Automation system remotely.
X10 remote controls let you control your X10 system from anywhere in your home or building automation system. The 433.92MHz RF signal they transmit can travel through walls and floors. Add remote control home automation to your home.
As remote controls aren't connected to the power lines (that would be a bit restrictive!), X10 RF Remote Controls need to operate in conjunction with an RF-to-X10 Interface unit (see below).
The HR10 palm sized remote control provides on, off and dimming control for up 16 X10 addresses.
Easy to use universal remote control for up to 6 Audio/Video appliances. This version of the ebode TAKE6 also includes wireless RF so it can even work through walls.
In addition to remote controls, there are a number of other wireless RF devices that can be used to operate your X10 home and building automation system.
Our battery powered motion sensor and wireless wall switch allow you to add motion detection or an extra light switch without expensive rewiring.
As the RF wireless X10 devices aren't connected to the power lines, they don't speak to X10 Receivers directly - they need to work in conjunction with an X10 RF-to-X10 Interface unit (see below).
Our wireless X10 RF Wall Switch lets you operate lights and appliances anywhere in your home without extra wiring. Features on/off for 3 devices, plus a dim and brighten button. Works in conjunction with an RF to X10 Interface.
The Hawkeye wireless motion sensor transmits RF signals to an RF Interface module when it detects motion. Use to control lighting or activate macros in your X10 system based on movement.
As X10 signals are sent along the electrical wiring of the home, remote controls and other wireless devices can not directly control X10 Receivers - they can't because your wireless devices are not plugged into the power.
In order to use an X10 compatible RF or IR wireless device with your system, you'll need a IR-to-X10 or RF-to-X10 Interface. These devices receive either the RF or IR signals from your wireless device and in-turn transmit the corresponding X10 signal.
RF/IR to X10 Interfaces can be used for using your X10 wireless devices and remotes to control the X10 system, and also allow you to use a number of other products to control X10, such as:
- X10 RF wireless devices
- Philips Pronto IR remote
- Logitech Harmony universal remote
- Environment control units for wheelchairs etc
- Philips Pronto IR remote
- Many more...
The IR7243RF is similar to our standard IR7243 but also features an RF interface (similar functionality to TM13). The IR7243RF is used to interface 3rd party IR remotes with X10.
