Essential Info

The X10 Humidity Sensor/Controller provides a way to sense humidity levels and trigger X10 devices based on user settings. It interfaces to a standard X10 Powerflash device (sold separately). The sensor is completely self contained and uses a solid state transducer preset at the factory, with the trigger point adjustable between 15% to 95%. There are three leads extending from the sensor. Depending on your application, the user selection of leads determines turning on or off devices based on whether to trigger when the humidity is higher or lower than your preset value. The user selects two leads, sets the approximate humidity level using a small screwdriver, connects the sensor to the Powerflash terminals, plugs in the wall transformer, and places the sensor in the appropriate location.

This product is compatible with X10 devices only. For an INSTEON compatible version, consider using the INSTEON Humidity Sensor/Controller.

    Works well. I have used this and other Smarthome products in my greenhouse for about 5 years. They are far more inexpensive than the commercial electronic units and have more optional add-ons as well.
