Overview

  • Improved signal response and signal output
  • Ideal for systems with less demanding needs
  • Mounts easily on a double-gang electrical box
  • Prevents signal collisions
  • Dip switches allow for customizable operation

Essential Info

For large, complex X10 installations where it may be necessary to use more than one amplifier, this Amplified Coupler-Repeater can be set to ignore previously amplified and repeated signals and only repeat/amplify original X10 signals. This prevents signal collisions that can reduce signal strength when multiple amplifiers are used. This Amplified Coupler-Repeater has DIP switches that enable the user to customize their operation depending on the application. The beige-painted enclosure is designed to mount on a 4-11/16" x 4-11/16" (double-gang) electrical box. LEDs in the cover indicate programming and operational modes. Incoming signals as weak as 25mV can be detected and repeated on all phases of power.

What's Included

  • HomePro Amplified Coupler-Repeater
  • Mechanical Connection Tri Barrier Terminal Block with Screw Clamp
  • More Info


    For systems with less demanding needs, this module amplifies X10 signals of 100mV or more to 5V across both phases of a 120/240 VAC split-single phase distribution system commonly found in a single-family home. The Amplified Coupler-Repeater will repeat both standard and extended X10 code sets. LEDs on unit show operation status. One LED shows that power is on and the unit is ready to repeat signals, the other will blink when it receives and sends X10 signals. Both lines are fuse protected and will mount into a standard three-gang electrical box.

    So far it works great.
    STAN -- capitola, CA   6/7/2013
    The HomePro CR230 FIXED all my erratic signal problems! Even trying to wire all the transmitters and receivers to the same phase didn't work. This did. Easy install too.
    John W -- virginia beach, VA   1/4/2013
    This product seems to work like a champ. I installed it in about an hour and now my x10 devices work reliably. Only 2 minor comments regarding the instruction sheet 1 As long as you recommend using external circuit breakers, you should indicate what amp rating to use 2 it needs a 3 gang box for installation vs a 2 gang as indicated.
    Mark Williams -- Erie CO   1/31/2012
    Works for about 2 years then quits. Manufacturer dosen't give any support for out of warrenty parts. I have gone through 3 of these units in the last 6 years. 4820aac cr320
    JON -- hampton, GA   12/27/2011
    X-10 still the most reasonably priced way to go if you want to automate lights and appliances in and around your home. Extremely happy with this product. This is the signal amplifier needed for large homes.
    WILLIAM -- lakeville, MN   12/17/2011
    Works perfectly! Solved every issue I was having with range, locations of devices, and interferrence.
    DAVID -- topanga, CA   10/20/2011
    Always had problems with intermittent operation but once I installed the CR230 everything worked like a charm. 5 star rating as far as I am concerned
    DENNIS -- appleton, WI   5/17/2011
    Not sure if was defective or not. It did not indicate that it was doing any receiving or repeating at all.
    ALAN -- north sioux city, SD   1/21/2011
    We installed a phase bridge first to fix our loss of signal problem, that helped some, but it was kink of hit and miss. When we installed the repeater we no longer have any problem any where in the house controlling the lights. I think it is a great product. Thank You Alan Pedersen
    BAYARD -- rye, NY   7/27/2008
    Installed and doing well. welcome back remotes
    RODNEY -- lake mary, FL   12/28/2007
    The 4820AC has solved virtual all of my X-10 send/receive issues. Installation was easy and straight forward. X-10 signals are coupled across phases even when the house is running on backup generator power.
    GARY -- pittsburgh, PA   2/20/2007
    Exactly what i need when i need it. It has always been like this for every order. Thanks
    HERBERT -- chicago, IL   2/11/2007
    I had a problem with X10 signals reaching all parts of my condominium. I first tried your plug-in repeater amplifiers (2) one on each phase which did not solve the problem. The installation of the Homepro Amplified Coupler Repeater has solved the problem perfectly. I am very pleased. Your customer service is excellent. If I didn't already have such a large investment in X10 equipment and cameras, I would switch to Insteon immediately due to your equipment and customer help.
    CALDWELL -- the woodlands, TX   3/9/2006
    Worked fine. Replacement for older Leviton coupler which had gotten "flaky".
    PETER -- orland park, IL   1/11/2006
    Thank you!
    MARK -- cotati, CA   5/2/2005
    My Smathome system controls lights between three buldings over 200 ft appart. And. it does it flawlessly.
    Dennis -- sc, USA   1/17/2005
    I have tried many ways to fix the signal strength problems in my house. It you are having X-10 problems I suggest buying this first. It exceeds my expectations.
    FRANK -- seattle, WA   1/13/2005
    Cured my weak signal and coupling problems.
    SPYROS -- smithtown, NY   1/7/2005
    EXCELLENT
    smoothtlk --    9/13/2004
    Tried Leviton and a no name coupler. This one worked much better for 6500 sq ft install.
