1.5. Extensions

The most basic and common use of X10 controllers is to turn lights on and off. However, X10 is extremely flexible, and the wide variety of X10 devices allows you to remotely control everything from dryers to window blinds to your home's thermostat. Here are some other common uses for X10:

  • If you have a switch in an illogical place, replace it with an X10-controlled switch and add a wireless controller to the wall where the switch should be.

  • If want a switch to control multiple electrical outlets, replace it with a two-way X10 controller and add lamp modules to allow it to control remote lamps.

  • If you hate getting up in the middle of the night to turn off a light somewhere in the house, replace all your light switches with X10 switches and use the All Lights Off switch on your controller.
