 Home Automation with Mac OS X, Part 2

MacDevCenter brings us Home Automation with Mac OS X, Part 2. (While the article was written for a Mac most of the information could be used with Linux or any other OS - Noel)

"The X10 technology is surprisingly elegant and simple in its design and execution. Every module has a house code (A-P) and an individual unit code (1-16). By assigning each module a specific house code and unit code, you are able to designate which module will respond to which signal. These signals travel over your home's existing wiring, so you don't need to retrofit your house."
