Essential Info

Experience ultimate convenience with X10 control of low-voltage devices such as sprinkler valves, door strikes, garage door openers, thermostats, and more. The X10 Universal Module receives a command from an X10 controller and creates a momentary contact closure when an ON signal is sent, or indefinitely until an OFF signal is sent; it even responds to an ALL OFF command. As an added feature, the module can be set to beep when responding to signals. This device is rated for 5A, 24VDC. To create the opposite action of having a low voltage contact closure trigger an X10 controlled light or appliance, consider using an X10 Powerflash Interface.

If you have an INSTEON home automation network, the I/O Linc - INSTEON Low Voltage / Contact Closure Interface will combine the functionality of the X10 Universal Module and Powerflash Interface, allowing you to monitor and/or control any low voltage devices.


What's Included

    For easy addressing, insert an X10 Code Clicker (sold separately) into the dial wheel.

    Good product fast service
    TW -- haddonfield, NJ   10/10/2013
    No problems with delivery or operation.
    DAN -- kirkland, WA   10/28/2011
    Works great for opening and closing the garage door.
    LEONARDO -- bogota, XX   10/18/2011
    very good article
    STANLEY -- rochester, NY   8/22/2011
    Works as advertised. A unit I purchased 12 years ago is still functioning perfectly.
    PETER -- burnsville, NC   8/15/2011
    No problems. Works fine. Instruction manual hard to understand with regard to using with NO/NC sensors and how to interface with a dialer
    RICHARD -- little rock, AR   7/26/2011
    I bought this for future use. I have the module that hooks to the security system and flashes all of the lights.
    DONALD -- pine brook, NJ   3/6/2011
    relay goes to off condition on its own
    RANDY -- the woodlands, TX   2/14/2011
    worked great
    CYNTHIA -- san francisco, CA   1/30/2011
    I don't know if it would work, because it isn't the module I needed. The customer service rep didn't know much about the X10 system, so I bought the wrong unit.
    DOUGLAS -- sandia park, NM   10/8/2010
    Works as discribed. When used to pickup signals from the X10 Powerflash Interface the signal seems to be able to transmit at least up to 300 yards.
    MICHAEL -- mcdonald, PA   8/16/2010
    Module worked great. In conjunction with the garage contact normally opened switch (7455B) was able to quickly setup an x10 module to close the garage door if open.
    VALDECK -- golden valley, MN   8/1/2010
    The standard of service that I enjoyed when I was first introduced to your company has been maintained, may you continue to do so. Please continue to keep me on your catalog mailing list
    FORREST -- lancaster, CA   6/27/2010
    Does the job I purchased it for very well
    DUANE -- tampa, FL   4/29/2010
    Excellent low priced controller for low voltage contact closures - sending out X-10 signals.
    DUANE -- tampa, FL   2/12/2010
    These work very well for Manual or Motion Detector control of Door Bell,and manual Garage Door control.
    EARL H -- pittsburgh, PA   1/4/2010
    Wonderful Product - Smarthome's recommendations were perfect. Thanks.
    SCOTT -- buffalo grove, IL   11/13/2009
    I am using this for a remote thermostat control (on/off). Have one on another furnance which works just fine. This one makes a buzzing noise when the furnace kicks in. Don't like that.
    GERALD -- tempe, AZ   10/15/2009
    We have a cabin in the mountains of Arizona. It takes 8 - 10 hours to warm it up in the winter months. Using the Universal Module with the Telephone Responder we are able to remotely turn the heat on prior to our drive to the cabin. All is warm and nice when we arrive.
    NOLAN -- coeur d alene, ID   5/27/2009
    Beep could be alittle louder--but it works great. Replaced one that I had for at least 10 years that worked without fail until an elactrical surge "cooked" it.
