  • Displays noise and signal level on the power line

Essential Info

Optimally set up your X10 devices by thoroughly testing signal strengths to make sure the system is functioning to capacity with the ACT Multi-Tester Transceiver. This comprehensive troubleshooting X10 Transceiver allows you to choose transmit signal levels, single or continuous signal transmission, and decide zero crossing degree shift. The X10 Multi-Tester/Test Transceiver can also display or log the level or frame data on the power line on its easy-to-read LCD screen.


What's Included

  • X10 Multi-Tester/Test Transceiver
  • Power cable

  • More Info

    With the X10 Transceiver's flexible features, you'll be able to do things such as:
    • Generate test signals to verify proper receiver operation
    • Display signal strength on line from other transmitters and two-way receivers
    • Use to test potential installation sites for possible installation problems
    • Pinpoint loads to be filtered by logging power grid noise levels (user-defined time periods up to 24 hours).

    Other features of the X10 Transceiver include:
    • Can log noise and frame data over a 24-hour period
    • Auto transmit mode for system testing
    • Adjustable transmit voltage in 33.3mv increments
    • Time/Date (24-hour format)
    • Selectable 0°, 30°, 60°, 90°, 120° or 150° transmit pulse
    • Shows received X10 packets as one frame or two frames (can be used to determine whether signal is repeated or original)

    The first unit I received stopped working but was quickly replaced with a new one Unit did exactly what was supposed to do and help me solve my problems
    ANDRE -- marietta, GA   8/27/2012
    Great tool, did not help in my situation but can solve many problems very quickly
    JOE -- tahoka, TX   2/19/2012
    The back cover of the ACT AT004 was missing two of the four screws that hold the cover in place. There were several noticable spatters of solder on the front control panel that had to be scraped off. The unit seems to function properly. The unit was quite expensive at over $200 and I expected the quality control would have been much better.
    MICHAEL -- houston, TX   2/14/2012
    With this tester, you can get absolute indications of noise and signal level at any location. Makes it much easier to tell the exact change in noise and signal while adding and removing suspect devices. Most UPSs seem to diminish the signal and many compact fluorescents will add noise. This tester will help show you this.
    DANIEL -- st-augustin de desma, QC   1/8/2012
    I did not use it yet. I had a delivery problem and it was very well managed by you and I found later that the parcel had been held at the borner during 2 weeks. I rate your customer service 5 stars.
    BERNARD -- maplewood, MN   1/6/2012
    It works and helped me find the problem.
    TED -- napa, CA   5/28/2011
    This terrific device shows you just what's happening with the X-10 devices in your house. I used it to solve a problem with the X-10 software in 5 minutes. It will also emit X-10 commands for testing purposes. It was worth the price to me when I couldn't get answers anyplace else.
    MICHAEL -- holmes, PA   4/28/2011
    Tester worked very well, found a surge protector sucking up x10 signal. Has a lot more complex tests that can be preformed, but the basic strength and noise test will probably take care of the most common faults.
    Jerry -- San Diego   11/13/2009
    So far Smart Home has replaced this unit for me twice. They would have had to do it a third time 2 year warranty but this time when the unit died, I set it back to the company that made it. They replaced an internal fuse in it and sent it back to me All previous problems with the unit were caused by a blown fuse. Because it is an internal fuse, opening up the unit to replace the fuse could void your warranty. It is a wired in fuse and so replacing it would require some technical abilities. I plugged the repaired unit back into my X10 system and within 24 hours it was dead again. Tech support from Advanced Control Technologies finally concluded that the problem with the unit was that it was not designed to run continually. They are going to put a statement in their instructions that says not to use it for longer than 24 hours at a time. It is a good device for reading X10 signals, but not for long term operation.
    ERNEST -- valley center, KS   10/21/2009
    The tester operating instructions do not give any criteria for noise levels or signal levels.
    THOMAS -- palisade, CO   10/15/2009
    works well and provides excellent information about noise and X10 signal strength. When I received the unit, the display was loose and I had to glue it back in place. It was glued at the factory but had come loose. This was a bit disappointing. Quality control could be better. However, this unit packs a lot of function in a little price and I'm sure this had something to do with cutting corners during design/assembly.
    ADILSON -- rio de janeiro, XX   6/15/2009
    Excellent tool. I found my week points in my X10/Insteon home system.
    GERALD -- san diego, CA   4/13/2009
    This item was a replacement for a defective unit I purchased last year. It was under warranty and Smarthome was very good at replacing the unit. It cost me nothing to get it replaced (no shipping costs). I have had good luck in the past with Smarthome customer service. This unit reads X10 signals on the AC line and can store data for later review. The only drawback is that it is accessed by pushing a button to read each X10 signal. This can take a lot of button pushing. It has all the information you need to troubleshoot an x10 signal.
    GORDON -- west olive, MI   7/21/2007
    Does exactly what it's supposed to.
    RICHARD -- plantation, FL   10/12/2005
    Nice product.
    GUY -- masspaequa, NY   12/2/2004
    It worked fine but can't use it see below
    KENNETH -- san martin, CA   6/29/2004
    It's exactly what I expected. No surprises.
    JASON -- ocean springs, MS   4/30/2004
    Helped me figure out that I needed the repeater
