New Device Does X10 to Insteon Translations



New from Simplehomenet, the EZX10RF all-house transceiver will receive signals from X10 RF transmitters and either rebroadcasts the X10 codes or, uniquely, convert them into INSTEON messages over the power line.

“The EZX10RF is the latest addition to the Simplehomenet family of INSTEON enabled devices introduced this past year. This is the first transceiver that not only can rebroadcast X10 over the power line, but also can convert those codes into INSTEON messages. These INSTEON messages can be either group commands or broadcast messages useful to trigger events in an INSTEON network.

Typical X10 transmitters include remote controls, motion sensors, driveway alerts, panic buttons, moisture alarms, etc… Unique codes utilized by multiple devices are “learned” by the EZX10RF such that their activation can trigger INSTEON group commands through their transitions to conveniently cause INSTEON events.

EZX10RF has a built-in power line interface and its programming and control are done through the power line or programming and details can be done without the use of external controllers or software. The unit is supported by home automation software packages such as an open source provided by Simplehomenet.”
