Do you have an X10 video receiver to receive its 2.4GHz signal?
Or do you want to try and modify it to get the video signal from it directly?

Do you have the XM13A power supply for it. It is turned On and Off with an X10 power line signal. So you also need a X10 RF Transceiver that can put the Motion Sensors RF commands onto the power line. To control it. The CM19A is a USB model and can not put the X10 command onto the power lines. Maybe a TM751 or RR501 would work.

I just added the camera and receiver kit's manual.

You donít by any chance have an X10 security panel in use or one you could use. They also act like transceivers and can get a signal back to the power line. Just a thought if you had one.
