Just wanted to let everybody know that X10 Commander now supports MacOSX server natively thanks to the wonderful folks over at ThinkingHome.  This way if you have a Mac you won't have to run X10 Commander Server in Parrallels or VMWare Fusion anymore just to run my little app.

Check out these two products....  X10 commander should hit the AppStore any day now.



I could use some help here. I would like to download x10 Commander to my iphone to use with my PC to (Via internet) control an appliance or two. Please help me to decide what controller I need.......(cm11, cm12.....?)
And, what is involved in the set-up. If there is a FAQ or set of instructions that i can read, please point me to them.

Thank You

wharfrat,

I recommend a CM15 USB since they are easier to find since I think they stopped making the CM11 and a lot of computers don't have serial ports.

As for X10 hardware and setup well that is best left to the X10 instructions that come with your hardware.  X10 Commander is only for controlling your lights not instructions on how to set up your lights.

After that you simply run our X10 Commander EXE on the PC connected to the USB CM15 and then your iPhone X10 Commander connects to the PC and controls your lights.  That's pretty much it.

IF you are using a CM15 don't forget to install the SDK Drivers: http://www.x10.com/activehomepro/sdk/index.html but if you are using a CM11 or CM17 you do not need those SDK drivers.

x10 offers cm19a alone and with video USB connector 
Do I need that if I don't plan to use a camera?

X10 Commander was featured in an Apple Ad in the UK for the holidays.  Check out the commercial, X10 Commander is used to turn the Xmas Tree ON!
