The CM11/CM12 X10 PC Interface is the ideal way of using your PC to enhance your home security, save energy and add convenience to the way you run your home.
Once the interface has been programmed, the PC is no longer needed. Two standard AAA batteries retain the built - in time clock's accuracy. The macros are held in E2 and retained even if the power fails. You can even unplug the inter face after programming it and plug it in elsewhere in the home.
The Computer Interface fits between the AC outlet and the computer's power plug. A grounded AC socket is provided on the front of the interface for the computer 's power plug (3A max). A cable with an RJ11 connection on one end and a 9-pin 'D' type
connector on the other is provided to connect the Interface to the ser ial port of the PC.
The Computer Interface is fully two-way, both generating and receiving X10 power line commands.
User friendly Windows 98, 2000 and XP compatible software is provided with the Interface which includes graphical representat ions of switches, modules, etc., to provide point-and-click control of modules, and easy setting of scheduled events and macros.
Events may be scheduled to occur at a particular time every day, on chosen days only, between chosen dates, etc. You can also program the interface to turn
lights on at dawn and off at dusk just by choosing your location from a worldwide list.
A command from a controller (such as a mini controller) normally operates a device directly, e.g. pressing 'A1 ON' switches on the module with code A1. The computer interface, however, can be programmed to intercept a command, and respond to it by
automatically generating a whole group of commands called a 'macro'. For example, pressing 'A1 ON' on a controller might turn on stair lights and bedroom lights, then after 20 minutes dim the bedroom lights to 50% and turn off the stair lights, and finally turn all lights off 30 minutes later.
- Stand alone operation
- Easy to use Windows 98, 2000 and XP compatible software.
- Controls timed events and macros
- Scheduled events resume automatically after a power outage (EEPROM)
