X10 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 X10 is, especially since this topic (and a great deal more) is well addressed at the X10 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’ X10 pages is to provide selected detailed pictorial modification, repair, and related information for a few X10 devices, and similar information for seasoned X10 users/electronics hobbyists not available elsewhere (at least in this form).
