Essential Info

PC-based home automation software offers incredible power and flexibility in controlling your home. The only problem is: To launch command sequences, you need to be at the keyboard, or you had to program complicated logic for all possible scenarios. But not anymore! With the X10 RF Receiver to RS-232 Adapter, you can activate elaborate macros from anywhere in the house, at any time you choose, without having to schedule it in advance.

What's Included

  • X10 RF Receiver to RS-232 Adapter
  • External whip antenna
  • 12 ft. coax connecting cable
  • More Info


    The X10 RF Receiver to RS-232 Adapter is designed to work with most home automation software programs like HCA Plus, HomeSeer, Indigo, Xtension, MisterHouse and PowerHome. When connected to a PC's RS-232 port, the X10 RF Receiver to RS-232 Adapter will receive and respond to X10 RF commands sent from standard X10 remotes such as X10 5-in-1 Remotes, X10 Keychain remotes, X10 Wireless Wall Switches, Version II Wireless X10 Motion Sensors and more. The X10 RF Receiver also supports extended RF commands, such as those transmitted by X10's "Entertainment Anywhere" remotes and X10 security modules such as the Long Range Wireless PIR Motion Sensor and the Long Range Wireless Door/Window Sensor with Homeseer.

    Incredible Wireless Range
    Packaged with an external whip antenna and a 12' coax connecting cable for optimum placement, the X10 RF Receiver to RS-232 Adapter will pick up signals from X10 transmitters up to 100 ft. away. We recommend up to 100 ft. of coax may be used if you stick to the low loss RG6 variety. If you need to go further, then an amplifier is suggested.

    This device works great with my x10 sensors!
    DAVID -- burnsville, MN   10/30/2009
    Great product, but the documentation is rather thin and confusing. But if you read through it carefully you'll have this product up and running in no time at all!
    Whitney S. -- lincoln, CA   4/25/2009
    Unit did not satisfy my needs. I purchased this to receive X10 signals from an outdoor motion detector. This unit received nothing, and this is while the motion detector and receiving unit were less than 30 feet away! I believe the chicken wire embedded in my stucco exterior walls is the culprit for the signaling issues. In any event I changed my setup to Insteon motion sensor and PowerLinc Modem and now everything works FLAWLESSLY. I have since made the jump to Insteon and will never buy X10 again.
    THOMAS -- phoenix, MD   10/17/2007
    Exceded my expectations.
    SCOTT -- boston, MA   10/4/2007
    I was stunned at how easy this was to set up and how well it works.
    STEVEN -- ottawa, ON   12/14/2006
    400 times better than the MR26 from X10
