X-10 logo World O’ X-10

X-10 is one of several names for a series of remote control devices for lamps, appliances, and so forth, which primarily utilize existing household wiring (as opposed to dedicated wires) to communicate with the rest of the system.

It is not my purpose to provide any further information regarding what X-10 is, especially since this topic (and a great deal more) is well addressed at the X-10 website, and, back when it existed, used to be very well covered at the Home Automation Knowledge Base (Dead Link) site. (I am leaving the dead Ido Bartana site link on this page and similar links on other pages of this site section in place, for those who may wish to try searching archive websites for archived copies.) The purpose of Sonic’s World O’ X-10 pages is to provide selected detailed pictorial modification information for a few X-10 devices, and similar information for seasoned X-10 users/electronics hobbyists not available elsewhere (at least in this form).

Neither Sonic Purity nor anyone at Siber-Sonic.com can control your ability to successfully and safely utilize this information, and we accept no responsibility for anyone’s actions (beyond our own) related to the content of this website. X-10 equipment utilizes the A.C. power line, which is dangerous. Do not attempt any of these adjustments if you have any doubt about your ability to work safely with household powerline-operated devices. It is your responsibility to know and understand common safety procedures, especially those involving electricity at potentially dangerous power levels!
