X10 – The hardware

cm11To 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.
