Car -> TM751 -> WS467. Not working
« on: January 22, 2022, 11:03:23 AM »

Hi Community:
i was trying to control outdoor light from my car. It has three Homelink buttons. I only need to turn on/off one outside bulb. I installed WS467 (A1 code); it controls outside bulb. Works fine as a dimmer. Next I installed  (plug in) TM751 (A code). It works, I can hear some sound when I press test button. But it does not control WS467 at all. I cannot turn it on/off by pressing test button on TM751. Both (WS467 and TM751) use the same circuit. Could someone please help to solve that?

If you are pressing the test button on the TM751 and expect it to control the WS467, you will be disappointed.  The test button will only locally control the device that is plugged in.  AFAIK, the TM751 does not transmit A1 ON/OFF when the button is pressed.

I have not tried using Homelink in this way so following Brobin's link would be best.

The TM751 also has no power line receiver in it. So you can't turn it on and off with another X10 controller using power line communications. Just an X10 RF command.

The RR501 has a power line receiver in it so you could also remotely turn it on with both X10 RF and X10 power line commands.
The test button on the RR501 also does not send an X10 power line command to control other X10 module.
