Seeking suggestions for a cost effective replacememant for a dead CP290 home automation controller
The CP290 X10 home automation system controller is a STANDALONE device. It is programmed using a PC o MAC personal comuter via a serial port, removed from the serial port and functions as a standalone (no PC or MAC required) X10 contrroller.
Standard CP290 features include:
Turning on and off modules immediately, including turning them on dimmed; Defining "turn on" and "turn off" events to be stored in the CP290 and executed by the CP290 even if the Macintosh is shut down. Such events include: Turning a module on or off once at the specified time today; Turning a module on or off once at the specified time tomorrow; Turning a module on or off every week at the specified time and day(s) of the week; Turning a module on or off every week within an hour of the specified time and day(s) of the week; (security mode).
The CP290 is a old but very useful device which is not longer maufactured.
