    Default Advice on X10 replacement

    Hi...

    I currently have a few Zwave modules which I am using to replace older X10 stuff....

    One that has me stumped is the curtains however... I have an X10 universal module which is set to 'momentary' and an X10 signals causes the Swish K400 curtains to open/close...

    I cant find the the Zwave equivlient of 'momentary' or universal modules however...

    Can anyone tell me if there is an easy way to achieve this?

    (It's my last X10 and I want rid!)

    Many thanks,

    Mark.

    what are you using to control the Z-Wave units?

    I just use a Z-wave appliance module for my Swish Autoglide curtains. I leave the appliance module in the off state all the time (using the local control button if needs be in the interim). HomeSeer sends an 'off' (in case local control has been used) followed by an 'on' 30 seconds later (if it's sent sooner the Autoglide doesn't switch). Then 30 seconds later after the curtains have opened / closed i send another 'off'. At the same time I set a flag to indicate if the curtains are closed or open.

    HTH?
