ADVANCED X10 PROGRAMMING OPTIONS

You can remotely set up X10 Scene Addresses as well as On-Levels and Ramp Rates using an X10

Controller capable of sending an X10 address (house code and unit code) without sending X10 ON or

OFF commands. The following procedures will not work with a transmitter that sends the X10 address and an X10 command together. X10 Controllers in which one button is pressed to turn an X10 device on or off WILL NOT WORK.

These procedures all begin by sending the same sequence of five X10 addresses, called the CLEAR

Sequence. After you send the CLEAR Sequence, you have about 4 minutes to finish the procedure before automatic timeout.

Remotely Setting the On-Level for the X10 Primary Address

The On-Level you set using this method will take effect immediately for the X10 Primary Address, but this

On-Level will not take effect for INSTEON until you link (or re-link) LampLinc Dimmer with an INSTEON

Controller. Setting the INSTEON On-Level using an INSTEON Controller will not affect this X10 Ramp

Rate.

1. Using an X10 Controller, send the CLEAR Sequence:

O16 N16 M16 P16 M16

2. Send the X10 Primary Address (house code and unit code).

3. Set the On-Level for the X10 Primary Address by adjusting LampLinc Dimmer’s brightness using any

Controller. If you skip this step, the current On-Level will be used.

4. Send the following X10 Address sequence to lock in the new On-Level:

P16 N16 M16 O16 M16

5. LampLinc Dimmer will flash the lamp it is controlling and blink its Status LED, indicating that the On-

Level has been set for the X10 Primary Address.

Remotely Setting the Ramp Rate for the X10 Primary Address

If you use this method for setting the Ramp Rate, you can achieve Ramp Rates ranging from 0.1 second

to 9 minutes. If you use the manual method in the section HOW TO SET UP ON-LEVELS AND RAMP

RATES above, you can only achieve Ramp Rates ranging from 0.1 second to 9 seconds.

The Ramp Rate you set using this method will take effect immediately for the X10 Primary Address, but this Ramp Rate will not take effect for INSTEON until you link (or re-link) LampLinc Dimmer with an

INSTEON Controller. If you also set the INSTEON Ramp Rate using an INSTEON Controller, that new

INSTEON Ramp Rate will replace this one.

1. Using an X10 Controller, send the CLEAR Sequence:

O16 N16 M16 P16 M16

2. Send the X10 Primary Address (house code and unit code).

3. Use any Controller to adjust LampLinc Dimmer’s brightness so it corresponds to the Ramp Rate you want in the table below. Brighter is faster.

About X10 Scene Address Programming

LampLinc Dimmer can be a member of up to 255 X10 Scenes. An X10 Scene Address is just another

X10 address like the X10 Primary Address. When an X10 ON command is sent to an X10 Scene

Address, every X10 Scene-enabled module with that X10 Scene Address will turn on to its independent

On-Level at its independent Ramp Rate. Sending an X10 OFF command to an X10 Scene Address will turn off all modules that are members of that X10 Scene, each at its independent Ramp Rate. X10

Scene-enabled modules will react to DIM and BRIGHT commands after the X10 Scene Address is sent.

However, they will ignore ALL ON and ALL OFF commands for the X10 Scene Address.

Remotely Setting an X10 Scene Address and On-Level

1. Using an X10 Controller, send the CLEAR Sequence:

O16 N16 M16 P16 M16

2. Set the On-Level for the X10 Scene Address by adjusting LampLinc Dimmer’s brightness using any controller. If you skip this step, the current On-Level will be used. A scene can trigger LampLinc

Dimmer to go off by setting the On-Level to 0%.

3. Send the following X10 Address sequence:

M16 N16 O16 P16

4. Send the desired X10 Scene Address (house code and unit code) to lock in the new On-Level and

X10 Scene Address.

5. LampLinc Dimmer will flash the lamp it is controlling and blink its Status LED, indicating that the X10

Scene Address and On-Level have been set up.

Remotely Removing an X10 Scene Address

1. Using an X10 Controller, send the CLEAR Sequence:

O16 N16 M16 P16 M16

2. Send LampLinc Dimmer’s X10 Primary Address (house code and unit code).

3. Send an X10 ON or OFF command.

4. Send the following X10 Address sequence:

O16 P16 M16 N16

5. Send the X10 Scene Address (house code and unit code) that is to be removed.

6. LampLinc Dimmer will flash the lamp it is controlling and blink its Status LED, indicating that the X10

Scene Address has been removed.

Remotely Setting the Ramp Rate for an X10 Scene Address

The Ramp Rate of each module in each X10 Scene is adjustable. If this setting is not adjusted, LampLinc

Dimmer will use the Ramp Rate for its X10 Primary Address.

1. Using an X10 Controller, send the CLEAR Sequence:

O16 N16 M16 P16 M16

2. Send LampLinc Dimmer's X10 Primary Address (house code and unit code).

3. Use any controller to adjust LampLinc Dimmer’s brightness so it corresponds to the Ramp Rate you want in the table below. Brighter is faster.
