Introducing the Linux & Open Source forum
« on: April 10, 2006, 06:45:30 PM »

There's more to the X10 world than just Windows PCs, and many of our customers are contributing. If you write software to use X10 products for Linux, you can share it here. If you want help with a project, tell us about it. If you have questions about how it all works, ask!

Try WISH for your Linux flavor - Under WISH you can run AHP for Windows since it has "Linux /dev support for X10"
Cheers  :D

Linux users owning a CM11A should take a look at HEYU for operating it and automating your home.  It also runs under Mac OS X and various other Unixes.  See: http://www.heyu.org

Will AHP run on Linux?

Hi, We're a group of student that is working on wireless home automation. We bought x10 smart home package. Was wondering if anyone here has written any source program to enhance the item for windows xp ? anyone?

Which interface did you buy?  If it is the CM15A (ActiveHome Pro) check out the SDK forum.

Why go through the trouble of writing code when there are scripts that are very nice and can be had for free. ;D

A while ago I started into the X10 realm and found that I wanted platform portability from a rich client. So I wrote an swing application that ran under Linux and windows 95 at the time. The program still works to this day and it was open sourced under http://jhome.sourceforge.net.

Not sure if this board is still being used, but I am starting a home automation project. My ultimate goal is to create an enterprise style server/client solution that provides control over all devices from a PDA. Linux would host the server, using MySQL as its backend data storage, a custom designed Apache module for the front end, the custom C X10 library for the communication with the X10 devices. The Linux box will double as the gateway between the client and the X10 devices.

However as a sub project I wish to recreate the X10 SDK in C targeted at Linux. I estimate that this sub project will take about 2 months, assuming I get help from X10 with their hardware specifications. ie baud rates, signals and the like.

If anyone drops by and reads this post and has any information or wishes to contribute please contact me.

Take a look at Neil Cherry's http://www.linuxha.com/ Linux Home Automation web site. It should give you a few idea's.

Speaking of Neil, take a look at his latest blog entry: http://linuxha.blogspot.com/2006/07/ha-controllers-ruin-my-day.html. He doesn't seem to happy with the state of affairs on X10s promise of documentation. Seems to me that the Open Source community has done more for X10 than X10 has ever done for it. That's just my 2 pence.

we are group of student want to transfer data over power line using X10 betrween two computers or you can say it file sharing. Any body hsve any idea of it, if yes then could you please provide us the relevant material for 220v/50Hz.

cupid:
Sure, you can transfer data over the power line with standard X10, but the maximum transfer rate is about 2 bytes/second.

If you're still interested, there are experimental (raw) data transmission commands in Heyu (http://www.heyu.org) which runs under Linux, Unix, and Mac OS X.   For 220V, 50Hz operation you will require two each of the European version of the X-10 CM11 serial interface.   No message packet encoding or decoding has been implemented but you could add this yourself since Heyu is open source.

You might perhaps double the transmission rate by instead using a pair of the European equivalent of the X-10 PSC05 interfaces driven by your own microcontrollers.
