1. A Foot in the Front Door > 22. Maintain an X10 Library

Maintain an X10 Library

You’ll save yourself some hassle, and the need to memorize esoterics, by keeping an up-to-date collection of X10 and related modules.

There’s one thing you’ll learn quickly about using X10: it’s a world that’s filled with hard-to-remember details that, if you forget them, result in hard-to-diagnose problems or bothersome procedures. For example, if you use a computer-based controller that’s based on the TW523 two-way interface [Hack #21], you won’t be able to use modules that work with extended X10 commands. That’s fine if you don’t have any when you first set up your system, but if you later add a two-way light switch, you might spend a lot of time troubleshooting the problem before you remember why it doesn’t work correctly.
