Summary: Electrical Troubleshooting Question about Home Automation:
I would like to know, is it possible to do electrical circuit troubleshooting to find the source of stray x10 commands? What is happening I believe is x10 commands are being sent to the sensor modules in my windows which is causing the modules to respond to the command the same way as a lamp module responds to the on off command to control a lamp.

X 10 Switch Signals

I would like to know, is it possible to do electrical circuit troubleshooting to find the source of stray x10 commands?

What is happening I believe is x10 commands are being sent to the sensor modules in my windows which is causing the modules to respond to the command the same way as a lamp module responds to the on off command to control a lamp.





When the sensors in my windows responds to the commands they make the same noise the lamp module makes when a on off command is sent to it. And I was wondering if that signal could be traced even if no commands are being sent at the time the troubleshooting takes place?
Thanks- J.


Hi J - Great Electrical Repair Question!
I believe you can monitor the signals using a few of the x-10 software packages installed on your PC



Be sure that the your addresses are different on the modules you wish to control separately.

Be Careful and Be Safe - Never Work on Energized Circuits!
