Signal boost advice needed...
« on: December 28, 2018, 04:49:19 PM »

I have a couple of Powerhouse mini controllers sitting idle and are needed. Problem: no matter which outlet I plug it in, it's just not powerful to trigger the outside lights. It is true I have 2 breaker panels in the basement, the WM100 plugged in right next to it, and a Leviton 2 phase coupler/blaster wired into the panel. BUT I am simply unable to get the signal from kitchen outlet to the basement. Lunching the app every time is ridiculous! Is there something I can do with the mini? Plug it in to something? Thoughts? Thanks! B:(

You need the XTB-IIR. It is simply THE best solution to solving X10 signal issues. Get one while you can as they are being discontinued. It is worth every penny!

You may want to look at Jeff's Troubleshooting Tutorials for some tips on X10 issues.
