It should. The Ninja P&T movement is controlled by RF from the remote or the computer, but X10 hasn't made the RF repeater in years. Many problems with it.

The X10 repeater has been discontinued for awhile.
We have also seen reports of probelms when the repeater was in a system.
You may want to do a search here and see if you can find posts on it.

Thanks Guys

I think i should have said RF extender. I need little more range with it. Like radio shack sell them to extend the range of TV remote. I have to aim the remote at one spot of my bedroom for to work.

I take care of my mom and dad so use the camera to keep an eye on them the both fall a lot.

That is surely an IR extender, not a RF extender, isn't it? IR extender won't help you.

The Ninja movement signal is 310MHz from the hand held remote or the CM15A, CM19A etc. If you are using a fixed transmitter like the CM15A or the CM19A you might try moving them around to find a "sweet spot". Higher the better.

As dave w pointed out. The pan and tilt is a direct RF command. That has to reach the base directly from the remote;CM15A or CM19A for control.
