How it works
The Mini Timer plugs into any AC outlet in your home and transmits digitally encoded
signals over your house wiring instantly or at the times you set. These signals are
received by the X10 Modules.
You Plug a lamp up to 300 watts into a Lamp Module, an appliance such as a TV,
stereo or coffee pot into an Appliance Module and replace important indoor or outdoor
security lights up to 500 watts with the Wall Switch Module.
