X10 – The hardware
17 novembre 2012 | english, home-automation, Open source | No hi ha comentaris|
To interact with your home modules using X10, you will need a device that can bridge your PC and the electric network of your home.
In my case I bought a CM11, full details of the device are here (x10modules.com), it has as both a serial and a usb interface (I’d recomend to use the USB, since Linux recognizes it directly as /dev/ttyUSB0)
It’s getting difficult to find because the manufacturer is pushing now CM15Pro that it’s more expensive and can’t be controled with Linux o standard system.
If there is no stock of CM11 you could also but the CM12 (same as CM11 but with UK plug) here.
