Light control from phone!
« on: June 29, 2011, 10:13:43 AM »

Very confusing directions in the 1200 manual.  4* on for unit code 4.  Ok, makes sense.  Then the manual states:  16# to turn off for unit code 16.  So I'm thinking they just chose two different unit codes as examples and since mine are set at 2, for the key chain remotes, 2 should work.  I call, enter (after PIN) 2*, and nothing.  Try it again with 4* and it replies "lights on".  Of course nothing happened since my code is 2.  Then I enter 4# and it replies "lights off".  So two questions:  If I'm going away do I need to set the modules to 4 and why the heck do they even mention 16 or am I missing something here?  Thank you!

Substitute the Unit Code you want to control.

If you had a X10 signal line monitor. The 4* sent On to unit 4 and the console reported the lights on unit 4 where turned on. Since you have no unit 4 modules. You physically saw no lights go on or off.

The 2* should have turned On your lights set to unit 2 and 2# should turn them Off.

Try a module on 4 as a test. If it works and 2 does not. Something strange is happening with the console.

It will be very interesting if unit 4 works and unit 2 does not.

I stand corrected!  The lights went on and off with 2* and 2#.  Not sure what happened with my first test.
