    Does this plug-in support receiving X-10 commands?

    I have a powerflash module connected to my doorbell.
    When the doorbell rings it sends an X-10 signal.

    On my HS2 it would detect the X-10 ON and send me a text that my doorbell rang.

    On HS3 it appears to do nothing.

    I've hooked my PCC Multi-Tester up and I see the X-10 being transmitted.

    I have "Enable X-10" checked in the plugin and can control X-10 devices.

    What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    what version are you running? and can you post a screen shot of the event trigger you are trying to use

      Hi Mark,

      Thanks for the reply. I've added the HS3 version to my signature.

      The Insteon Plug-in version is: 3.0.5.20

      Here is the trigger I'm attempting to use:

        Jay,
        that all looks good. Two more things to check/try:

        1. Enable detailed logging in the plugin. then activate D8 and see if the plugin captures the inbound x10 msg. If the plugin doesn't see the msg, it can't trigger the event.

        2. test the trigger with an x10 keypad that is plugged in next to the plm

        this might just be a noise issue blocking the D8 msg

          So, I enabled the detailed logging in the plug-in.
          Sent multiple X-10 codes via an X-10 Keypad plugged into the next plug next to the 2413U and it received nothing.
          The PowerFlash module is plugged into a non-surge / non-filtered powerstrip next to the 2413U.

          This is the exact hardware setup from my HS2 setup which worked perfectly every time.
          I've tried a v1.5 and v2.0 2413U and both produce no results.



          ***************************************************
          *****************UPDATE***************************
          ***************************************************


          In the process of swapping the 2413U hardware (in the plugin) from the v1.5 device back to v.2.0 device it started receiving X-10 commands, however they aren't consistent.

          The first time I rang the door bell I got: D8
          No ON

          The second time I rang the door bell I got: D On
          No number

          When I put my AT004 PCC Multi-Tester on the line I consistently get "D8 ON" from the PowerFlash Module

          Thanks again for your help and any ideas you have.

            Jay,
            This all looks good. X10 cmds arrive in two parts: 1. address (eg. D8), and 2. cmd (eg. D
            On). the plugin logs them independently.

            you're Multi-Tester is just putting the two pieces together

            I'll test your specific D8 On to see if i get the trigger to fire

              Excellent. Thank you for the two part explanation!

              I will play with it more this evening when I get home.

              Thanks again!

                I just retested D8 On and D8 Off and they work

                you should see entries in the hs log like the following if you have have debug logging:


                Apr-01 7:28:42 PM Insteon Firing D8 On

                  Thanks for your reply.

                  I'm back to getting nothing in the logs.
                  Under "Debug" and under "Detailed".

                  I'm going to abandon this configuration and order an Insteon Doorbell Kit.

                  Thanks again for your time and replies!

                    I understand. X10 has a way of becoming unreliable as the insteon network gets bigger/stronger.

                      Yea... It's time I move away from X-10 as much as possible anyway.

                      I really believe the issue is with the USB module and Windows 8.1 drivers (HS2 was Windows XP).

                      Love your plug-in and all it can do! Keep up the great work!

                      Thanks again for everything!

                        I need to maintain X10 as I live in the UK and to date the release of Insteon products for the UK is poor.
                        However I some issues with using this plugin for X10 and so kept an X10 interface and use the X10 plugin.
                        So far so good.

                          Can you tell me the following?

                          1) Which X-10 Interface are you using?
                          2) Which X-10 HS3 Plug-in are you using?
                          3) Does your X-10 Interface / Plug-in setup support receiving X-10 commands?

                          Thanks,
                          Jay

                              I have the same question. I have a bunch of old X10 motion detectors, and they actually worked pretty well using my StarGate. I'm not seeing any X10 reception using Mark's plug-in with X10 enabled, and the correct House Code and Unit Code set.

                              Since this is the first time I've tried using X10 through Mark's plug-in, I'm not 100% sure I've set it up right. I see no insteon address, but the house and unit code are present in device setup inside the plugin.

                              BTW, yes, I still have the X10 receivers on in the same places, so I know the motion detectors are transmitting because I can see the traffic on the StarGate log.
