    Default Active Home Pro USB in the UK

    Is it possible to use a US Active Home Pro USB interface in the UK?

    Would it need a complex conversion, or would it be possible to simply use a plug travel adapter the plug it into the UK mains?

    Many thanks,

    While it is possible to use the unit by way of a stepdown transformer and bridging the X-10 signal from secondary to primary windings, the work involved and the RF limitations are significant and probably not worth the effort.

    Since the US unit is rated at 110V AC, plugging it directly into the UK mains of 230V AC would instantly destroy the unit. Please do not try it.
