remote for outside lights works sporadically
« on: November 05, 2005, 07:54:03 PM »

My remote for my PRO X-10 for outside
lighting works sometimes and other times
not at all.  Takes forever to get them on
and then turn them off.  Have replaced
batteries numerous times.  Have no
instruction book since I bought the house
with these already installed.

Instruction manuals for the X10Pro line can
be found on: www.x10pro.com. In the
instruction manuals area. If you know the
items part numbers the manual is there. Also
posting them here may help us know what
modules and tranceivers you have.

If you know where the Transceiver is
located try moving to a new location
possibly closer to the switch(es) your
encountering problems with.  You could also
try buying an additional transceiver.  hope
this helps.

You may need a bridge or repeater. There
are numerous products. Here's one;

As JersyJoe said, a phase coupler (bridge)
might be needed.  I wrote a tutorial on
phase coupling at:
