With ActiveHome Pro and your X10 Modules
you can create schedules for your lights and appliances, set up groups of
commands for your daily life, and keep lights and appliances off when they’re not
in use. Use ActiveHome Pro to make your home more comfortable, and more
secure. The X10 ActiveHome Pro software, in conjunction with the Interface, lets
you control lights and appliances around your home when used with X10 Modules.
The first thing you need to understand is that there are two different devices you
need to control your home - Controllers and Modules. Any light or appliance that
you want to control is plugged into a Module and that Module is then plugged into
a standard AC wall outlet.
Modules receive commands from Controllers. Examples of Modules are the Lamp
Module, Appliance Module, and Wall Switch Module.
The CM15 Interface is a Controller: Controllers are also plugged into standard AC
wall outlets and send commands to Modules over your existing electrical wiring in
your home, without affecting your electricity in any way.
The CM15 Interface is also a Transceiver: When it receives a command from a
wireless remote control it sends digital signals over your existing house wiring to
Modules that receive the signals and execute the command.
The CM15 Interface connects to your PC’s USB port and then plugs into a standard
AC wall outlet. The ActiveHome Pro software tells the Interface what to do. The
Interface then sends digital signals over your existing house wiring to Modules that
receive the signals and execute the commands sent by the Interface. With your
ActiveHome Pro Home Automation Interface and software, your PC becomes a
very intelligent Controller for all of your home automation tasks.
