When we first saw this 10″ Touchscreen with X10 interface for under £200 we sat up rather quickly. Even though it’s not quite what we thought, it’s still an interesting and unique product that may well fulfill a need in your home if you’re all X10’d up and wanting a custom visual interface to control it…
When pressed, the buttons transmit X10 codes that you have defined to a Transceiver Module. You can then control individual devices or use Harmony to trigger macros.
The result is a low cost, highly flexible and fully customisable control panel with possibilities as wide as your imagination. A (Microsoft Word) template is downloadable by clicking here. It allows any PC with an A4 printer attached to create a background picture with ‘button’ positions overlaid. The template is only an example; you may choose to create a picture without using a computer or using a different software package.
However you decide to create your background picture, these instructions will show how to install it behind the touch-glass and teach the unit where the ‘button’ positions are and what functions they will perform.”
