Recommend a Reliable x10 Controler/Transceiver
« on: May 13, 2011, 11:23:38 PM »

Hi all,
I installed x10 in my house with 6 x ld11 lamp modules and 5 x am12 appliance modules. I started with a SC9000 controller which worked fine until it stopped sending plc commands after less than a year. It got "lost in the post" when I returned it for repair.
Then I started using a CM15 Pro which has been a disappointing experience to say the least. It had to be unplugged for a minute or 2 every couple of days when it stopped sending plc commands. Now it has decided to stop sending commands altogether, powering down doesn't help anymore.
Anyway, my question is - Can anyone recommend a good, reliable transceiver/controller preferably with a way to connect via web access or phone. Web access would be best.

Thanks,
Rob

You might try "Clearing memory" (erase all internal macros and timers) using the Windows software then unplug it from the wall outlet AND remove the batteries. This sometimes revives the CM15A so it might work for the CM15Pro.

You would be looking for 220 volt 50 Hz units?  As the modules you have now are 220 volt 50 Hz.

Thanks for the replies.
I cleared the memory and unplugged the cm15 pro with the batteries removed. It worked for a couple of minutes then stopped sending plc commands again.

Yes, I live in Ireland so I am on a 220v 50hz system.

Is your CM15 for 50Hz? What is the final alpha character in the model number?
