The boss (wife) actually approved a project; timer control of the lights in the kids room. So, now I need to figure out what to buy before she turns off the budget.
I'm finding a ton of different information, maybe because things in the x10 world have changed recently?
I'm open to all suggestions at this point.
I currently have an Arduino UNO and a mega, either of which could be used for this, but it seems like the UNO would be pretty sufficient at this point. I need an x10 controller (2-way transceiver), maybe something like a TM751 or CM15A? Then, to control the light light in the kids room, I will need a switch in the wall like a WS467.
Anything else that will be needed, like resistors, etc for circuit protection?
Long term plans might include. Turning on lights in the shed (about 100ft away) from the house. opening garage door opening gate to driveway blah, blah....
