Essential Info

Skip the time-consuming process of setting house codes on your RF receiver with the All Housecode RF Transceiver, which comes preset with all house codes and unit codes enabled, so no setting of the house code dials is required. The transceiver receives all 256 house code/unit code addresses plus commands (On, Off, Bright, Dim, All Lights On, All Units Off, etc.), then filters these signals according to your setup. This information is then presented to the included X10 TW523, a powerline interface unit that transmits your X10 commands over your household wiring to any X10 device capable of receiving them.

    Setting up the All Housecode RF Transceiver is easy. Should you desire to filter or selectively inhibit specific house codes/unit codes, you will need a PC with Windows 98 or later as your OS, a serial port and the supplied RS232 cable.

    Connect the All Housecode RF Transceiver to your PC to assign the X10 address and program unit code filtering. Once the X10 address and zone cycle durations have been set, the All Housecode RF Transceiver can be disconnected from the PC and will respond to X10 signals just like any other X10-connected device. The All Housecode RF Transceiver does not have to be connected to a PC for everyday operation.

    Packaged with an external whip antenna, the All Housecode RF Transceiver will pick up signals from any X10 RF transmitter within its 150-foot range and is equipped with the ability to filter specific house and unit codes, since its vast range may pick up a neighbor's X10 remote. It's even safe for outdoor use if mounted in a weatherproof enclosure.

    The X10 TW523 is a two-way transmitter/receiver that can send and receive X10 signals through your powerlines. The All Housecode RF Transceiver can also be purchased separately.

    Range is good, but not fantastic. The receiver antenna definitely needs to be within 50 feet of units with weak transmit antennas (Slimline StyleSwitches, Motion Detectors, etc.). Still a huge improvement over X10 designs. No lockups, which is a big plus!
    Mike M -- portland, Oregon   8/23/2010
    I also had a bad experience with this product. Range was improved from 5 feet to 10. Very disappointing.
    THOMAS -- el granada, CA   5/14/2010
    This item underperformed. I saw not improvement in my RF wireless range. Additionally, random On-Off events began occurring on my X-10 system after I installed it. I sent the item back for a refund. Refund processing by Smarthome is very slow. They warn it may take months to see the credit.
    ROGER -- fountain hills, AZ   4/13/2010
    This works great, I can control my lighting from 75 ft away and with 3 House Codes only need the one device.
    JAMES -- saint louis, MO   2/25/2010
    Works better than the one I replaced ever did.
    ROBERT -- eastsound, WA   8/29/2008
    Excellent product, has a great reception range. No more missed X10 signals.
    RICHARD -- santa clarita, CA   8/8/2006
    New Product for our installation, but certainly increased the range of activation.
    GHOST -- hamilton, ON   9/26/2005
    Fantastic product!!!
    DEREK -- dalton, GA   3/19/2005
