  • The X10 Variable Temperature Sensor provides a way to sense temperatures and trigger X10 devices based on user settings. It interfaces to a standard X10 Powerflash Interface, sold separately, and supports a temperature range from approximately 0° F to 120° F.

    The sensor is completely self-contained and uses a solid state transducer preset at the factory. 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 the temperature is hotter than the set value or cooler than the set value. The user selects two leads, sets the approximate temperature using a small screwdriver, connects the sensor to the Powerflash terminals, plugs in the wall transformer, and places the sensor in the appropriate location.


    Operations
    For best results, let the sensor sit in the environment for 1 hour prior to use in order to allow the temperature to stabilize and begin normal operation. For residential use only.

    Modes
    1. Turns on all Lamp modules set to the same house code as the Powerflash. Turns on Appliance modules set to the same house and unit code as the Powerflash. After the temperature returns to normal, all modules set to the same house and unit code will be turned off.


    2. Flashes all lamp modules set to the same house code. If temperature returns to normal, all lights remain on.
    3. Turns on Lamp and Appliance modules set to the same house code and unit code as the interface. After the temperature returns to normal it will turn these same modules off.

    Recommended by a buddy who has I swear 100 different X10 devices in his house.... Anyway, it plugs in and hooked up to my Powerflash without any issues. It says to wait an hour for the temp to stabilize but mine was at room temperature in about 10 min. I set the temp and let it run... works like I expected and no issues. If you want to use X10 and not Insteon, this is the least costly option I have found that works.

    This was recommended by Smarthome phone support, it was perfect for our needs. Good sensor, would buy again.

    Works fine. Needed a small screwdriver to adjust the temp set point but consistent performance since then. Two thumbs up and recommend.

    I don't know much about X10 so I bought with some concern. Smarthome tech support was fine although in the end I didn't need it. Anyway, if you are not tech savvy, no problem. This worked first time for me and I haven't had any problems.

    I have ours interfaced to a X10 in-wall appliance module that controls a ceiling fan. It worked perfectly all summer. Very solid product. With the exception of a X10 wall dimmer, everything I have purchased from Smarthome has lasted forever.

    I luv this little unit. I have had it 6 months and it literally was set it and forget it. I had a different X10 type temp sensor previously that over time had gotten inaccurate and drifted out of calibration.

    Turns on a pump at the temp set point surprisingly well within a few degrees. I am not an X10 officianado but this was pretty straightforward.....as advertised.
