X10 was the first standard for home automation and nowadays there are several companies that make X10 compatible devices.

The pulses, high frequency signals, 120 kHz with an amplitude of 5 Vpp, are transmitted through the power grid frequency 50 or 60 Hz AC voltages of 110 or 220 Vac.

X10 devices

Each X10 device has an address consisting of a house code (a letter from A to P) and a number from 1 to 16.

It may therefore have up to 256 adresses. If several devices may have the same address, see orders being together is the same for transmitters or controllers.
