[REBOL] Re: any X-10 interface code / libraries?
From: reichart:prolific at: 24-Oct-2001 17:44
My house uses about 50% X-10 (the other 50% is custom lighting). By most
X-10 standard it might be considered a lot. Meaning I use about 200+
Some are grouped with lighting controls, some are on/off. Some are timer,
some are motion detection.
I also have a whole house security feature (prevents people outside the
house from changing codes), and phase cross-over circuits, which allows two
arms of the electrical lines to talk to each other.
There is a special box made by Home Automation Systems that hooks up to a
PC, and runs with out it, that does scripts.
One communicates with such as device through the serial port.
Which is why I wanted simple serial control in Rebol early on. This was
provided by Goodnow.
I ran a simple test, and it worked. But someone needs to write a dialect
for this, and have some fun. Once Rebol is in control of your home, one
could then tunnel in, and get readings (temperature, electricity being used,
images fro cameras), and set things as well.
Rebol-the language behind the hardware.
P.S. For those that know me, I'm not dead, just working too hard. We just
went gold master on a product that has been consuming all my time. Now I
begin living again.
