I would like to know what people are using to control their home devices.
Also a short note on how reliable they feel the system is.
I use Harpers HC2000 / DOS control programme...has some quirks and the system is too slow.
-I found X10 receievers work flakey in certain locations, despite trying to correct for 15 years. Must be a resonant piece of wiring??
-I found X10 wireless RF receiver/X10 converters to be really bad. They send out All Lights On codes at random sometimes and mistake codes. I run four units with different house codes and they all seem to do it about once every month or two.
- I found wireless X10 motion detectors do not work well in the cold. Not the batteries, unless just weaker. They begin to work better as the weather warms up (garage wall)
