#22098 - 09/05/10 04:35 PM How to Send an X10 Command ... propertly

The Send X10 command accepts a house code, key code and a repeat count.

1. Is the repeat actually a "repeat" or is it a send count... in other words if I set it to 1 will the command do 2 sends or 1?

2. If I want to turn ON B 5, I assume I would need to run the Send X10 command twice such as:

Send X10 Command: house=0, key=4, repeat=1 (send A5)
Send X10 Command: house=0, key=18, repeat=1 (send A-ON)

I assume that will send:
A5 A5 A-ON A-ON

Is that correct?

The repeat count only appears for the X10 dim and bright commands. This is to specify the number of relative dims or brights that you want to send to achieve the light level that you want.

So for Dim/Bright, do I set the repeat from 1 to 16 since there are 16 standard dim levels?

Sort of, but the best thing is to experiment with the number you need to achieve the dim level you want. This might vary from one module to another.

Thanks for the help, we now have a working Elve driver which so far can send IR, X10, and set relays.

Thanks,
John
