DOMOTICS X10, WHAT IS IT?
X10 is a power line communication protocol that allows compatible products to communicate with each other via the electrical wires around your home. The protocol X10 allows, without any additional wiring, to control light fixtures, electrical appliances, shutters, etc.
The advantage is that it is not necessary to install new communication cables, we make use of those already in place (the wires delivering electrical power), and this without power reduction. There’s no need to add other wires if your installation is up to standards (phase and neutral present at different nodes). The X10 standard uses the current delivered by Hydro Quebec and the existing electrical installation as a carrier.
