Essential Info

What if you could turn on your fan from across the room? Simply Automated's UPB Appliance Module makes it possible it to control an appliance such as a coffeepot, fan or even fluorescent lighting using your existing outlets. Just plug the appliance into the UPB Appliance Module, and you'll be able to control it remotely, using a UPB Wall Controller (sold separately). With the free, downloadable UpStart software and a UPB Interface Module (sold separately), you even can use your computer to configure and/or control UPB devices.


What's Included

  • UPB Appliance Module
  • Instructions
  • More Info

    The UPB Appliance Module uses Universal Powerline Bus technology for superior performance and reliability. Similar to the standard X10 protocol, Universal Powerline Bus technology uses your existing power wires, so no rewiring is necessary in order to use this switch. But UPB benefits include its higher reliability, since its signal strength is greater than X10, with increased electrical noise resistance.

    The UPB Appliance Module plugs into your wall, but you won't lose an outlet: The appliance to be controlled plugs into the bottom of the module, but a pass-through outlet is included as well, for a non-controlled appliance. The appliance can even be integrated into scenes.

    Sold separately, the Computer UPB Interface Module converts serial signals to UPB powerline signals to control your UPB modules from your computer. If you're just getting started with automating your lights and appliances.

    Please note: UPB products are NOT X10 compatible

    The UPB appliance module works as advertised, though I have had noise/interference problems that have made its operation poor. I have moved to UPB from X10 for improved reliability, but have yet to experience that.

    Good product, works great. Only complaint is relay is a little loud, but that isn't a big issue.
