    Two-Way Power Line Interfaces

    Included in my boxes for my HomeVision and also my RCS TX15-B Thermostat were Two-Way Power Line Interfaces. I see the mention of the CM11A Interfaces all over this message board. My Interface says X-10 Pro Model: PSC05 on the back. Is mine junky? Advantages or disadvantages between them? Should I replace them for the CM11A model?

    The TW-523/PSC-05 and the CM11A are not interchangeable. Your device was designed to work with one or the other. If it came with what you bought, then it's the one you need.

    If you don't know what you're doing... do it neatly.

        Simply to understand the quality of each component I have now or am about to purchase as I plan my Home Automation setup. With the Power-Line Interface, I keep seeing the CM11A model pop up here and I noticed mine wasn't that model, So I inquired about the quality of mine in the whole sceme of things.

          The CM11A is a power line communicator that connects to a computer and sends and receives x10 signals. The PSC05 is a device that also sends and receives x10 signals but is designed to connect to another piece of hardware other than a computer, like you tstat. As the previous thread stated they can not be interchanged. If you looking for an interface between a software package and the powerline then the CM11A is one of a few different interfaces. It one of the cheapest and has proven to be a reliable piece of hardware. If your short on com ports there is a new device that uses USB that HomeSeer Tech sells.
