XTB Products / APC BR1500G Filter?
« Last post by bcwmachine on July 19, 2017, 02:19:16 AM »
Have a pair of signal sucking APC BR1500G ups's. 1500VA, 865Watts. Do I go with 10A or 15A Filters?
Just to check, I put a couple of xppf's on them low load on ups's. about tripled the signal level on xtbm pro but I don't think I should use 5 amp filters on them. Don''t really want any fires.
Wi-Fi / Re: wijit modules
« Last post by Tuicemen on July 16, 2017, 06:55:01 AM »
Using a Broadlink RM I was able to learn codes for modules 1-3
I tested learning module #4 and once set to # 4.
 I was able to change the module to #1 without the hub plugged in.
This was done by pressing the sync button then sending the on code for #1 from the Broadlink RM.

I posted the codes for #s 1-3 on my forum for anyone wishing to play with them.
They are for the RM bridge app and the Broadlink RM but may work with something else.
The wijit hub is not needed for the modules to see these commands nor is the wijit app required (which is buggy anyways currently)
XTB Products / PSC04 / PL513 replacement
« Last post by Jeff on July 15, 2017, 07:42:11 AM »
I ran across a post on another forum mentioning my intention to add a jumper to the XTB-523 to allow it to function as the transmit-only PSC04/PL513.  I never did that because much of the circuitry would not be used.

It is easier and cheaper to assemble a custom version of the XTB-523 so it functions as a transmit-only unit.  One jumper is added to turn the receiver output into a redundant ground, and then all of the receiver circuitry is left out.  The firmware is the same, but it will never receive any signals.

Contact me directly if you need a transmit-only replacement for the PSC04/PL513.

Note that the XTB-IIR can also be assembled to function as the PSC04/PL513.  It turns the digital port into a transmit-only configuration, but the boost and repeater functions are unchanged.  A unit can be custom-assembled in that configuration on request at no additional cost.

X10 Controllers / Re: Controller differences

I did not see an X10Pro XTMT5 on their sales site yet. Only reference was the wiki link.

One possibility is they actually made an improvement and put a updated model number on it.
They did that with one of their wall switches. The XPS3 was replaced by the improved XPS4.
If they did change the XTM4 to an improved XTM5. I t would be nice to inform the public.
Though past experiences don't always show it happening.

The X10Wiki says that the MT14A and XPMT5 are the same (basically).  I love how they change the part and leave the same model numbers and also change the model number but don't change the part.   :o

I don't know about the XPMT5/XM20A, but the Amazon description says the XPMT4 is the Pro version of the MT13A.  And the MT14A says it is the "new" MT13A.  I suspect the XPMT4 and MT14A are essentially the same unit with the Pro version perhaps having more testing and better quality control.
X10 Controllers / Controller differences

I have a controller with 2 'model' numbers. It says XPMT5 and XM20A on the back.

I see Amazon selling MT14A and XPMT4 units.

Are these all the same?

I had read this thing had thermometer built in.
Today I found out how to access it, adding an air conditioner will display the current temperature of the broadlink :)
Since I don't have an air conditioner I never played with this remote option in the app.
Something new to look into, maybe a fan can be triggered to come on for cooling and something else for heat. ;)

My pleasure.
I'm very happy with the X10 RF range of this unit.
The fact that I can now control my x10 As well as other RF and IR devices form my smartphone is a nice addition to my setup.
Being able to control the same devices with Alexa is a bonus. :)
