X10 Pro Telephone Responder. This seeming innocuous black box has the power to totally dominate your home at the touch of a button. In fact all you have to do is connect up 10 of your in-house devices to the thing, and user your mobile phone to call in and dial up your settings. Turn on the lights, turn off the lights. Turn on the heating, turn off the heating. Drive the cat mad with fear and traumatize the budgie for life. $69.99.
Now you can call home to turn on the lights, hot tub, heat, music, and more! This amazing device gives you control of ten X10 devices from any touchtone telephone. When you call in to your home phone, the X10 Telephone Responder picks up after 30 seconds. You will then hear 3 beeps. At this point you can press a number 0 – 9 that corresponds to each of the 10 devices available followed by * for on and # for off. A three digit security code can be set before access is allowed if desired. The Telephone Responder can also be set to flash X10 controlled lights or activate chime modules when the phone rings, great for when you are outside or for the hearing impaired.
