  • In-Panel Phase Coupler

    What's the best in-panel solution for Insteon and X-10?

    Mike, you don't need a phase coupler for Insteon. As long as you have at least one dual band device on each phase and they can communicate with each other, they will handle this.

    The following device was required before dual-band

      Mark,
      Will the Insteon Dual Band devices also serve as a coupler for my X-10 devices as well?

        no, they don't repeat or forward x10 msgs

          So, I'll have to get one for my X-10 devices if I have any issues with the 2413U PLM not talking to them?

            i used to have an A10 CR234 x10 coupler installed. no issues with insteon signals. if you are are interested in the unit, send me an private message on this board

              What is the effect on hop count when using a pair of dual band devices rather than a wired signalinc?
