A system based on x-10 is suitable in these cases since it sends signals / orders to and from the central system to the elements to control through the existing electric network, which makes that it isn’t necessary to perform rozas and unwanted works. These systems carry out the control of existing items from the House, blinds, boiler, lights, etc, but if we want to put new safety elements, detectors of presence, flooding, etc. these will be via radio, radiofrequency (RF), which makes that they are not always as secure as a wired system. X-10 systems are suitable in places (homes or offices/local) of not very large dimensions, as the signal begins to lose with the distance and sometimes do not work correctly. Hedo & Montero never recommend such systems if we have the possibility of making new work and make a wiring, if the site has more than 100 m 2 or elements to be controlled are too many.
Protocol X 10 consists of bits of addresses and orders. For example, one can say ‘ device No.3, ON and the system will proceed to execute this mandate by turning on the identified device 3 Cone, which can be a lamp for example. Several units can be addressed before giving the order: #3, lamp #12 lamp, encende I!. There are multiple instructions used by the Protocol among which we highlight: ON, OFF, All Lights ON, All off, DIM, BRIGHT. Our home devices must be generally plugged into modules X 10 (receivers). These modules provide energy to electrical devices and accept orders X-10 to tell them what to do, (e.g. coffee, boiler, engines machines), or simply by them turning and them. The entire system is very sensitive to electrical noise so it is considered as a system for the do it yourself, or rather use it and extend it easily, and neither can be ordered him wonders.
