Whats going on?
« on: March 07, 2015, 11:19:53 AM »

Periodically (seemingly in the fall and spring) X10 things mysteriously stop working abound the house. Most times I can trace it to a noisy something or other and regain reliability. But the oddity is the gizmo putting out the noise had always put out noise, but suddenly the noise became a problem where it had not been. I saw this occure many times and in at least three different homes from florida to Michigan to Indiana.

My thought is the power companies do something in prepartion for the season change (and power demand) which changes the overall line impedance, consequently effecting X10 communications where border line(?).

It is happening here now,  so this is just general musings and verbal head scratching.

The majority of Spring failings are caused by Leprechauns and Pixies.
Fall failures can usually be attributed to Witches and Demons.

You're welcome :)

Although my explanations may not be exactly clear, I do hope for slightly less cloudy.

"Bees"

Thank you very much! I had not considered this, but it makes perfect sense.
