At one time there where wired cameras. I believe the included cable was maybe 50 feet.

It's the latest available version, downloaded from here:

I'll try and use the LifeJacket program to register it.

This may have been what I was thinking about with the simpler infographic
It shows no computer interface, and in reality none is needed for a basic setup with no logic.
The old x10 cameras were PLC ( simple on/off if memory serves me right) only the video feed was RF, the ninja mounts were x10 RF.

Besides the security devices mentioned.

There are also X10 Cameras. At present I believe they are all Wi-Fi. In the past [some maybe still on some auction sites] They used a RF transmitter in them and a RF video receiver to get the video into a display like a TV.

 Actualy a computer connection is not required for the cm15 or 11 if simple on, off, dim, brighten control is required.
The cm15 and cm19 both send and recieve x10 security and standard x10 RF. So your missing the security side of things.
The RF sending codes are more bast then the PLC side.
You also overlooked the wm100 interface which uses wifi and converts to plc.
The stuff you can control with x10 is extensive, add in a good piece of software and possibilitirs are endless. I believe the site had a simpler diagram at one time.  A infographic can get very complicated trying to show all possibilities and options.

I never had good success with the standard x10 battery operated motion sensors. I do have 2  x10 motion sencing flood lights in operation that work fine.  I switched to using the security battery motion sensors years ago and not looked back.I don't  recall any lock ups due to RF. I did experiace lock ups using a PLC repeater during beta testing of the PLC repeater module.

So I'm trying to wrap my head around all the interesting stuff I can get running on X10.
I've never seen it presented graphically.

I'm trying to create an infographic that might simplify things for newbies.

This is a VERY rough work in progress.

Am I mistaken in the concept shown?

What version of Active Home Pro did you get? 3.318 is the latest.

If it is the unregistered version. You can use AHPLifeJacket to get it a registered version and the added things like Smart Macros and On Alert

Just trying to get feedback from anyone with a similar setup to the above. Are you experiencing any problems with your CM15 locking up due to it being flooded with RF traffic. If you introduce the standard X10 sensor into a setup with only X10 security sensors you may experience this problem.I may have discovered a bug in the X10 driver but before I take this any further I'd like to see if any others are experiencing symptoms I've outlined above.

Not the way you have described it. Homelink could memorize a "house code ON, or house code OFF", but it needs the RF code to memorize, and I don't know of a currently available X10 RF remote that will transmit "house code C ON" . The RF remotes are designed to control at the unit code level. (The actual transmitted protocol is: "unit code C1" "house code C ON" and that burst is transmitted several times from the HR12, to turn on unit C1.

Using Active Home Pro and the CM15A you would set up set up two macros to light up the home. For example: D1 ON  = Turn on house code C. D1 OFF = turn off house code C. (or you could use "D2ON" to trigger the OFF macro). Then use your HR12 to program Homelink the D1 ON and OFF codes.

That's kinda what I was getting at; I can mix and match house codes.

A1 on is the trigger for House Code C all on.
A1 off is the trigger for House Code C all off.

So as I understand it, I have 256 (16x16) codes to dole out split between individual units and macros. However All-On/All-off controls will only work within a house code of 16 devices.

BTW my own experience is the receiver in the CM15A is not that great. People have gone as far as adding an F connector or BNC ad a tuned external antenna.  There is a lot of info on the forum about the poor CM15A reception. don't know if the current CM15A is improved or not.

Thanks for the tip; I'm an RF guy. I'll improve the antenna.  ;)
