  • What's Included

  • The keypad hidden under the flip up lid also works as a manual controller for eight X10 devices with ON/OFF, DIM/BRIGHT and ALL LIGHTS ON/ALL OFF control. Does not affect the phone line when you are at home, the responder automatically turns off if you pick up the phone. In answering machine mode, the responder will activate even after your answering machine has picked up the line, simply ignore your answering machine and enter the commands you want. The Telephone Responder features a flip-up cover for the keypad.

    Turning devices On/Off by phone is simple with X10 technology. Simply plug your choice of Telephone Transponder or Responder into a telephone jack and into a 110V AC outlet. Any X10 compatible receivers in the house can now be controlled by telephone. Thermostats can be controlled by using a Universal Module to interrupt the connection to your existing thermostat or by replacing your thermostat with an X10 controllable thermostat.

    This unit may not be compatible with some brands of answering machines. We have found that some answering machines have difficulty working with the X10 Telephone Responder. Machines that have a circuit in them to automatically disconnect themselves when another phone extension in the house is picked up may not function correctly. The Telephone Responder works by listening to the phone line 30 seconds after a call comes in. To an answering machine, when the Telephone Responder picks-up the line to listen in for commands, the answering machine thinks that a human has picked up a phone extension and it will cease recording.

    Note: For X10 device management with additional remote heating, cooling, and light switch control, check out Minotaur Engineering's TR16 X10 Touchtone Phone Controller.

    I have been using the X10 telephone responder for many years now to turn the heat on in the winter at my lake home in Minnesota. When we walk in the door it is 70 degrees. I can't say enough good things about it. It works in temperatures well below zero as well.

    The Telephone Responder allows me to start a heater in my cabin, warming it for my arrival. It is a small miracle in my life!

    This is a replacement unit for one that quit working. This worked well for us at our lake house - controlling ac/heater remotely.

    This is a great product. I use it to reboot remote computer and surveillance systems by powering off and on via the telephone.

    It works as advertised. However it hasn't changed much in a decade and an ability to dial in and get current status or integrate with a home monitor would be a really useful. Compared to products like sensaphone it's hard to see where this fits except as a very cheap one way control. It's very limited in functionality. I will probably have to move up to something else soon, which is unfortunate.
