Check out the personal home page I put on the web especially for the X10 Forum.  It includes:

  • An explanation of my avatar.
  • System overview diagrams of all the electronics in our house.
  • Source of the program used to produce the diagrams.
  • Free program add on libraries for X10 and wiring diagrams.
  • Usage tips.
  • Other stuff.

The first paragraph in the home page explains why I did it.

You can get to it by:
  • CLICKING HERE ->

  • Going to my X10 Forum Profile and CLICKING on "Website"

  • CLICKING on the EARTH Icon to the left (2nd icon - Old Geezers may have to lean forward, lift bifocals and squint)



[TTA Edit: Formatted, added all possible LINKs and a bit of humor...;) ]

...CAUTION:  The transfer limit on a free Geocities site is 4.2mb/hr which means it can only accomodate about 9 viewers per hour.  So, if you get an error message come back later.  I don't think it will get clogged up, but if it does it should be over in an hour or so.

Oldtimer,

We don't seem to be hitting the 4.2MB / Hour Limit: [images now saved at the bottom]
this time around. :o ;) Would you please visit your GeoCities site and capture and display these two charts:

I (AGAIN! ::) ), for one, am VERY curious as to how much activity / bandwidth your new website is generating / consuming. :-\

Thanks! :)

Oldtimer,
Nice system and documentation!.  This should be posted on entry to the forum to show what can be accomplished with X10 and the CM15a.

Seriously guy, you've got it all going on here:
1) 10 Rf transmitters.
2) 2 Rf transceivers.
3) Heating control.
4) Filter locations documented.
5) You remembered the Christmas decorations (I always forget these).
6) Surge protectors (including whole house) documented.
7) I especially like the reference to the "workshop"  (soft spot for me).

Really nice layout and presentation.  In your previous life your were a NASA systems engineer, correct?  Nice to know that some of us old timers haven't fallen behind the times.  Thanks for the shining example and the links.

One question - what is the LR closet (living room?) controller used for?  Scaring friends or programming the interface??

Another old fart...

Thanks for the kind words Boiler.  The controller in the closet is just stored there until it's needed.  It's used when we're away on a trip.  We bring it out and put it on the kitchen counter for the person who comes in to feed the cats.  All our lights are on house codes C & D.  There's already a controller for C in the kitchen and this gives them one for D.  When we tell them the two "All Offs" can turn all the lights in the house off if the computer system goes haywire they seem very reassured about coming into a computer controlled house.  Although the two controllers can only handle 16 devices individually the "All Offs" handle all 32. As far as we know the cat feeders have never used them.

Check out the personal home page I put on the web especially for the X10 Forum.  It includes:


If you've downloaded my free ZIP file of X10 symbols for use with the program EDGE DIAGRAMMER this is to let you know I've added three more symbols to the set.  There have also been quite a number of (small) changes to my X10 system diagram since it was first posted.  If you haven't looked at it before there's a link to my Forum Home Page in the first post in this thread.  You can get to all the diagrams, downloads and references from there.
