About INSTEON and X10
Possible BoosterLinc Interference with INSTEONIf you have installed older Smarthome Plug-In BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters or certain other BoosterLinc-enabled products, the older BoosterLinc technology may interfere with INSTEON (patent pending) communications.Plug-In BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters, Smarthome #4827, shipped after February 1, 2005, with V3.0 or later firmware, are fully compatible with INSTEON.The following Plug-In BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters use older firmware that may cause interference with INSTEON:
  • White BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters, #4827, shipped before February 1, 2005, with V2.5 or earlier firmware
  • All Gray BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters, #4827
Try unplugging the older BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters to see if this helps with INSTEON interference. If it does, please call 800-SMARTHOME (800-762-7846) for help with replacing your older BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters with newer INSTEON-compatible ones.The following pre-INSTEON SmartHome products have BoosterLinc technology that you can turn on or turn off when you set the X10 Address for the product. If turned on, the BoosterLinc technology may interfere with INSTEON.
  • KeypadLinc 6 with Integrated Dimmer, #12073W, #12073WB and #12073WW
  • SwitchLinc Relay 2-Way, #23883 and #23883T
  • SwitchLinc Relay Timer
  • ToggleLinc 2-Way Dimmer, #23890, and Switch, #23893
If you have any of these products and the BoosterLinc feature is turned on, please consult your User's Guide or call 800-SMARTHOME (800-762-7846) for help with turning it off. You may then wish to install newer INSTEON BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters, which Smarthome can help you with.INSTEON's Effect on X10If your existing X10 devices seem to be working less reliably after installing INSTEON devices, remember that INSTEON devices can absorb X10 signals just as X10 devices do, and that INSTEON devices do not repeat X10 signals. Installing INSTEON-compatible BoosterLinc X10 Signal Boosters, Smarthome #4827, or a SignaLinc Plug-In Coupler-Repeater, #4826, can increase X10 signal levels.Please call 800-SMARTHOME (800-762-7846) if you have any questions or would like more help.
