SDK & Security
« on: December 10, 2010, 05:50:37 PM »

I am working on writing my own program to control my lighting and I am thinking about venturing into some x10 security devices. However, I am wondering if it is possible to send/receive commands from the SDK. I have found some older topics regarding the existence of the commands, but nothing relating to how to actually do it.

As of right now the SDK can't access the security devices or see their signals although X10 has talked of upgrading the SDK it is anyones guess to if the security device part will get added.

Yes, I am releasing some very special software this week that can read the X10 security devices. I am a blogger for X10 and you will see it posted on the Blog as soon as I release the software.

I got close using a usb sniffer and libusb for the driver, but it was too much trouble not using the X10 driver.

With the usb sniffer I noticed different init codes sent to the device depending on if you had a security device enabled with active home. With this code is would send a signal when the security device was tripped, but without it nothing would happen.


Are you using the X10 driver or third party?

I am using the X10 drivers. It can be done, even without AHP. Once I publish my new app I will expand on how to do it, (don't have time at the moment)

I too am interested in how this is done.  My own setup has some limited support, but that's because AHP is turning phantom switches on and off for me and my code is reading those instead of the actual security devices.  Any code on reading from door sensors would be much appreciated!

If you are that deep, then you should be able to write us a better X10 driver?
I'll keep an eye on this post.
