x10 eagle eye repeater
« on: August 11, 2007, 04:50:23 PM »

Does anyone make an x10 eagle Eye motion sensor repeater that is weatherproof?

I'm using the Eagle Eye's for a project. I'd like a sensor several hundred feet away but they don't seem to have the power to reliably send a signal that far.
Thanks

You can NOT accomplish that with a normal-regular X10 device. What are you trying to do from several hundred feet away?

Ok.... so I am not the type of guy that can just say "No, you can't do that".

There is a product called: The Reporter Wireless Driveway Alert System

Features of the Reporter Wireless Driveway Alert System include:  Amazing range; the sensor has a 30' range and can transmit a signal to the receiver up to 1,200' away. Receiver features sound control and has an output to trigger external alarms or bells.

You could use the output to active the Powerflash module and intergrate the reporter into an X10 system.

There is the Smart RF Repeater, though it is not weatherproof; at least not "as is".

Have you tried a passive radiator?

Tape 18" length of small gauge wire on the left side of the motion sensor as a test to see if it improves range.
