Shop for Secret X10 Devices

It’s possible that you already have an X10 device or two in your home, and you don’t even know it. In addition, sometimes you can find good deals on modules that work with X10 but don’t admit it.

X10 technology has been around since the mid-1970s, so it’s had plenty of time to become commonplace, and in fact has, with relatively little fanfare. The modularity of the system has allowed it to grow over time, with various modules and add-ons being introduced in response to new markets and demand for new capabilities. For example, the selection of X10 light switches ranges from X10 Corporation’s simple pushbutton switches (http://www.smarthome.com/2031.html; $10) to Smarthome’s two-way designer dimmers (http://www.smarthome.com/2380.html; $70), to Leviton’s sophisticated switches with LEDs that indicate their status (http://www.smarthome.com/4289.html; $75).
