    urghh -- assumed I'd be able to control from command line or somesuch. But it looks like you have to buy their software for $130. I'm returning it.

    Works great for Insteon devices, although
    backwards compatability mode for X10
    devices is somewhat lacking.

    Review of 2414u

    The controller was purchased to replace an older model (1816B) purchased about 8 to 9 years ago. After installing the 2414U some of the modules would no longer function. I have three lamp modules with the same house and unit code. One of the three will turn the light on one night and then will not turn it on the next night. This happens with other modules with the same house and unit code. This is the second item I purchased that does not work properly. I bought a phase coupler (the tpye that plugs into a dryer outlet) months ago that also did not work. I have given up on Smart Home and will switch to a local company this year.

    It did not say,but the software that is offered for free to download will not work with device. Instead a person needs to buy software that runs $169.99 to program it!

    It works well. A bit of a pain setting up X-10 commands, but they are reliably received. Being able to make changes from a lounge chair via wireless is cool. Shipment, as always, was prompt.

    I was talked into trying this for my X-10 devices, but it didn't work at all.

    Review of 2414u

    It appears to be a good product, but i dont know how to use it! Almost no documentation! No software! I cant even tell if this item is discontinued or what! If/when i figure out how to use the darn thing, ill most likely love it.

    It shipped on time, item was well packaged, and arrived unspoiled. Experience with Smarthome is good! I just wish i had a little more documentation!
