Transceiver Module (RF)
« on: March 22, 2018, 01:09:46 AM »

This has probably already been asked so please excuse me but, can the new WiFi module control the X-10 Transceiver Module (RF)?  Thanks.

The WM100 currently has NO RF capabilities and ONLY sends PLC's.

That's to bad.  One step forward, two steps back.

True. But the WM100 takes a giant stride (leap?) forward. Although a PalmPad may lose it's effectiveness if the WM100 is the only device you use to utilize X10 control.... you will be able to use a tablet or phone just as easily.... and from anywhere in the world (FAR less limited than X10 RF).

The WM100 has almost completely replaced my CM15A. But I do still have one plugged in (with some macro's loaded and running as well). You can always use a CM15A, TM751, or RR501 to use the X10 RF.

The new options... and there are many more new options than just a new module/device offer a lot of choices... but NOT the same old choices. I think... there are a lot of really great new ideas with how to automate and what makes a smart home smart.

If a new model with an RF feature comes available and replaces the current model, I hope there is a way to turn off RF so those with x10 security consoles don't have interference with their security lights that use RF broadcast by the console.
