MLW800RF Plugin

The W800RF32 family of RF receivers are designed to receive X10 RF signals generated from X10 products: Palm Pad remotes, key chain remotes, and many, many other X10 RF devices.

The W800RF32 then sends these commands directly to your computer's serial(RS232) port. This allows your computer to receive X10 RF commands from remotes directly, without having to broadcast any power line commands, thus minimizing power line clutter and improving home automation response times by bypassing the usual power line delay.

Now these X10 commands can also send MLServeCmd's when received. Which means anything Cinemar can communicate with X10 can too. Open programs, switch MainLobby scenes, control your Russound CAV, sprinklers, trigger Elk outputs, send IR or serial commands through the Global Cache and much more.
