7. Advanced Techniques > 94. Remap X10 Addresses

Remap X10 Addresses

If you’ve run out of house codes for your modules, or if you just need to rearrange a few addresses without redoing your entire system, this handy script will save you a lot of work.

Address remapping is an advanced technique for having your home automation software change command recipients on the fly. For example, you might want your system to change every command for house code P to the equivalent device on house code L. That is, when P10 On is received, your system sends L10 On to the power line.

You might occasionally need to remap X10 addresses for a few reasons, the most common of which is to allow a Palm Pad [Hack #5] that is set to one house code to control devices that are set to a different house code. In other words, when you press the P10 On button on the Palm Pad in the upstairs bedroom, you want the light in the downstairs kitchen (device L10) to turn on in response.
