  • The X10 Signal Coupler Repeater is recommended for homes measuring over 3,000 sq. ft. and for homes in which a number of devices are installed. When devices such as televisions, computer gear, or anything with a complex power supply are plugged in, there is a good chance that those devices will load down or absorb the X10 signals. If you have a home smaller in square footage but you employ a greater number of electronic devices, then stepping up to the X10 Signal Amplifier / Repeater is a good idea.

    Can I install it myself?
    If you have ever replaced a broken circuit breaker, then you have the experience needed to install the X10 Signal Amplifier / Repeater. You will need two dedicated 15-amp circuit breakers (available at a home improvement center). The National Electric Code requires that the amplifier / repeater have its own circuit breakers. If you have more than one electrical panel, the amplifier/repeater would be installed at the panel closest to the point where electricity enters the building. If you choose to have an electrician install it, it should be no more than an hour's job for him to mount and wire the X10 Signal Amplifier / Repeater.

    How does it work?
    The X10 Signal Coupler Repeater provides the same functions as the signal bridge but it regenerates the X10 signal and blasts it out both legs of electricity at the same time. Provided there is at least 100mV of incoming signal, this unit will boost the outgoing signal to over 5 volts depending on the impedance of the home. A status LED will blink when X10 signals are detected and repeated to let you know it's operational.

    Ready for 3-phase service
    The X10 Signal Coupler Repeater can work on three-phase (120/208 VAC) electrical service, commonly found in commercial apartments, and condominiums. In split-phase installations, commonly found in single family homes, one of the wires will be capped off and unused.

    I wish the prices would come down on these things. You simply cannot expect X10 to work well without it. If it was cheaper, more people would buy them and have a better opinion of X10. If you really want X10 to work well in your house, get one or expect random performance. If you are just starting out with X10, this should be very high on your list of things to buy.

    I got this unit to help push the Insteon signals through my crusty built and wired in 1918 cabin electrical system. I had poor results at first because of poor wire quality from my PowerLink Modem to the electrical panel. I solved the problem by placing the PowerLink Modem at a Receptacle very close to the electrical panel and running an Ethernet cable to a nearby Ethernet switch. I now have very strong signals to and from my insteon devices on both sides of the panel. I even get reliable signal at my shop which is over 500 feet from my home!

    The repeater did not work reliably for me. The red LED would come on when the repeater sensed an X10 signal, but the "boosted" repeated signal never seemed to make it to my x10 devices. Maybe it is because I do have a lot of electronics plugged into various outlets (who doesn't?).

    Works like they said it would. Now all my X-10 units work even in pole barn 300 ft. away from house.
    Fast shipping. will order from here again. Very good service.

    Product worked fantastic and solved the communications problem I was having - highly recommended over the passive 'signal bridge' or 'SignalLink' that plugged in line with the dryer.

    This turns out to be a useless product to me. Some signals are mirrored correctly. Others which worked without the repeater, no longer work when it is plugged in.
