  • Simple plug-in installation
  • Supported by home automation software
  • Built-in pass-through outlet allows use without loss of receptacle

Essential Info

This is the first transceiver to receive X10 RF codes and convert them to INSTEON commands. Now you can use any number of X10 transmitters, such as remote controls, motion sensors, driveway alerts, panic buttons, moisture alarms, etc. to trigger an ultra-reliable INSTEON command. Unique codes utilized by multiple devices are "learned" by the EZX10RF such that their activation can trigger individual INSTEON commands or group commands resulting in INSTEON scenes. The EZX10RF can be programmed via the powerline thanks to its built in powerline interface. No external controller or software is necessary.

While basic functions can be programmed manually, advanced functionality can be programmed with the EZSrve INSTEON / X10 Home Automation Gateway (SKU 31279). If you already have a central automation controller or a software package for your INSTEON network that doesn't have the correct parameters to program the advanced functionality of this device, you can download the free Smartenit Utility Suite which works in conjunction with an INSTEON USB Powerlinc Modem (SKU 2412U), Dual-Band INSTEON USB Powerlinc Modem (SKU 2413U) or Dual-Band INSTEON Serial Interface PowerLinc Modem (SKU 2413S).

    Blends the X10 and INSTEON Worlds
    If you have existing X10 RF devices in your home, now you can integrate them into a reliable INSTEON network. The EZX10RF can receive RF signals from up to 200 feet away and will rebroadcast the signals on your power lines. It decodes all 256 X10 house/unit signals, any of which can be filtered out if you desire. X10 RF codes can be transmitted as X10 powerline commands or the internal translator can convert the signal to INSTEON commands.

    Use X10 and INSTEON Interchangeably in Your Home
    Now you can use an X10 handheld remote to trigger the EZX10RF to turn on your porch light via INSTEON as you approach the front door. Or you can use an outdoor X10 motion sensor in the garden to trigger an INSTEON scene that turns on your landscape lighting and water features.

    Status LED
    Get a visual indication when the INSTEON / X10 RF Wireless Sensor Receiver is sending or receiving INSTEON signals.

    Pass-Through OutletThe EZX10RF even contains a pass-through outlet on the front face. The AC outlet allows you to conveniently power your controlled devices.

    INSTEON Compatible
    The INSTEON/X10 RF Wireless Sensor Receiver is fully INSTEON compatible. INSTEON is a powerful home-control networking technology. INSTEON messages are transmitted throughout your home both wirelessly and through the home's existing wiring. All INSTEON messages are confirmed and repeated by INSTEON devices in the network, contributing to the outstanding reliability and performance of INSTEON products. Like most INSTEON-compatible devices, the EZX10RF acts as a repeater of INSTEON communication, strengthening your network simply by being a part of it.

    X-10 Compatible
    The INSTEON / X10 RF Wireless Sensor Receiver also works with legacy X10 products. If you have an existing X10 network, the INSTEON / X10 RF Wireless Sensor Receiver works with your X10 products and provides an upgrade path to an INSTEON network.

    Had to replace an older one that the wirelss randomly went out. I tired so many times to set up devices. Kept locking up and several Appliance modules had issues connecting. After 1.5 hours, I finally got it to work...what a pain! Also, the newer version doesn't have a pass through outlet...so this eats up an entier plug...
    RICARDO -- north miami, FL   9/24/2013
    Works as advertised but pricey!
    HUMBERTO -- fulshear, TX   8/1/2013
    I was not able to make it work with homeseer.
    HENRY -- flushing, NY   1/17/2013
    Perfect for those who started with x10 and have a lot of x10 remotes. Which are more useful then any Insteon remotes at present. Something Smarthome should have come out with themselves.
    Henry -- NYC   1/16/2013
    Works very well so far. Don't know why Smarthome didn't come out with a their version. Seems like a must have if you like your X10 remotes and are adding Insteon controls.
    CHARLES E. -- richmond, TX   9/29/2012
    Works Very well and as advertised. I wish INSTEON would Repeat X10 signals, but that is another issue not related to this product.The X10 Signals the EZX10RF recieves from my Palm Pads are received from a greater distance, and received without the need for any other Clunky X10 Transmitters. They are then converted to Insteon which is a much more reliable signal, so everything works better. I have phased out 99% of my X10 in favor of a Large Insteon Home Network, however I cannot forsee anything in the pipeline that would allow me to get rid of my Palm Pads(HR12A), so the EZX10RF should be an essential part of my Insteon network for a long time. I just wish Product Designers would quit going out of their way to make things hard. More people would use them if they made it easier. Simple things like making a Usable House Code Dial for the Palm Pad! Very Simple but the current design makes the palm pad only usable for a single X10 House code. Not everyone likes or wants a Remotelinc, and a some of the other Keypadlincs, etc do not control as many individual devices as the Palm Pad does, so all in all their designs are headed in the wrong directions. Not everyone wants just a 6 button Scene Controller. Palm Pad at least gives you 16 easily and should have been functionally designed to give you 256.
    MARK -- scotts valley, CA   6/24/2012
    I bought this for one reason, to make my homelink in my car control insteon devices. For that it works perfectly. I was pretty amazed at the range as well. I only gave it 3 stars because the price is WAY too high in my opinion.
    STANLEY -- kiawah island, SC   4/13/2012
    This was a replacement for the first unit that didn't work. Prompt and courteous customer service for the exchange. Only disappointment is that the range is very limited - maximum of about 20' yet advertised as much longer range. Still fulfills my requirements.
    Stan S. -- kiawah island, SC   3/21/2012
    First unit had no wireless connectivity. Interestingly, the replacement unit weighed significantly more! The replacement unit worked but operation and programming was erratic. The problem was that these units do NOT work with GFI circuits. A note in the instructions would have saved me a lot of time and trouble resolving this issue. But wait, plugged in a small wall wart for cordless phone charger in the pass through outlet and operation was again erratic and range less than 15 feet! These units don't work or at least don't work well with a wall wart plugged in the pass through outlet or even plugged into the other free outlet. I confirmed this with a call to the Insteon Support line. They also warned that circuits with arc suppressor breakers can also be problematic. Come on Smarthome how about a warning in the instructions to save everyone the time and trouble of figuring this out!?
    PIERRE-ANTOINE -- quebec, QC   10/18/2010
    Excellent product. Does what it is designed for (used as a homelink onboard car remote control gateway towards insteon devices) now I can illuminate the garage and outside lamps from the car. Will be especially useful this coming winter (i live in the cold Quebec :))
    RICKY -- greensboro, NC   9/13/2010
    Got this so I could use my new car's HomeLink to control my Insteon.
    ROBERT -- phoenix, AZ   5/24/2010
    Works well, but you must use newer X-10 transmitters. Some of my old ones do not work with this unit but still work with a x-10 t5ransmitter.
    PRESTON -- morris town, NJ   5/18/2009
    The instructions were a little confusing but once you get the unit programmed it works as advertised, allowing wireless control of all Insteon linked devices.
    LOUIS -- colchester, VT   12/10/2008
    Good product, poor documentation. Turns out it is actually supported by HouseLinc 2, but only for editing links (go figure...). So you have to add links using the manual run around your house method, then you can tweak them in HouseLinc 2.
    REINOLD -- latham, NY   11/4/2008
    Increased range. Allows me to use my X-10 remotes to activate my INSTEON modules.
    MICHAEL C -- dayton, OH   7/28/2008
    Had problems but was replaced
    JOHN -- st paris, OH   6/23/2008
    Dramatic increase in recieve range!
    SCOTT -- glen allen, VA   2/15/2008
    Great way to migrate your old X-10 stuff to Insteon
    BRIAN -- fenton, MO   2/9/2008
    Works well - above expectations...
    Michael -- van nuys, CA   11/26/2007
    Works as advertised. I enjoy controlling Insteon lamps with an inexpensive X10 remote.
