  • What to switch to. Using X10 now.

    I have been using X-10 technology for over 20 years. It works well but it is getting harder to find interfaces that work with HS and there is a delay from when a command is give until it executes. The delay is only a second or two but presents a problem for some of my setup. I control everything from lights to sprinkler system to waterfall in my pond to a gas fireplace.

    I am looking to upgrade to a new technology and would appreciate suggestions on which way to go and what is required in way of controllers. I will need outlet modules, wall switches (both 2 and 3-way), contact closure that supports low voltage (x10 powerflash module) and contact input devices like the X10 Universal Module. Price is a concern as is the variety of control devices.

    Any input would be appreciated. I am running HS3 on a PC in a Windows 10 environment.

    Thanks in advance

    HomeSeer works well with Z-Wave, Insteon, and UPB at the same time. My advice is always find the device that does what you need and uses one of these protocols and you should be set.

      My preference is UPB and Simply Automated Switches.
