The CM15A X-10 ActiveHome Pro USB Interface is a USB to X10 powerline and RF interface that works as a wireless transceiver to convert X-10 RF signals and pass them on as powerline commands. But it is also a powerful PC interface that can be plugged into the USB port of any PC and be used to control, schedule and trigger events using X-10 Home Automation Software.
The CM15A can be used as a whole house transceiver by literally replacing up to 16 transceiver modules. It can receive all 16 unit codes (1 to 16) on all 16 housecodes (A to P). It can send and receive all 256 house/unit codes and as well as control X10 Cameras and other X10 wireless RF devices plus it has built-in memory that will remember the state of all 256 house/unit codes and has extra memory for timers and macros.
Like the CM11A, the CM15A has battery backup for when the power fails plus it can send commands not only wirelessly but when monitoring a selected house code (you can have more than 1) it can send and receive that house code via both RF AND Power Line.
Connect the CM15A to your computer for programming via a USB port (USB cable is included) and once it's programmed, a computer is no longer needed for it to work. It also can work on its own to carry out timers and macros - whatever you set it up to do. Battery backup (4-AAA batteries - not included) saves programming, scheduled timers and the internal clock's time in the event of a power failure for up to a week.
The CM15A is the replacement model to the CM11A (serial to X10 power line transceiver) and CM19A (USB to RF transceiver) from X-10 (USA) Ltd, and, as such, was designed to allow easy import of your files from the original ActiveHome (CM11A and HC60RX). And, it has 800% more memory capacity than the original ActiveHome CM11A or HC60RX interface.
** This device does NOT come with any software for use on a PC/Tablet. It can be used as a standalone transceiver but software IS required if PC control is desired **
