Thank you for your interest in X10.Com. Products sold by X10.Com are strictly 110/120V, 60Hz only. They do not function well, if at all, in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_with_mains_power_plugs,_voltages_and_frequencies other wiring environments]. Units that send or receive powerline commands will generally not work with voltage converters. Entertainment and camera products are NTSC only. You can, however, obtain 220V and PAL products from our non-US distributors. For more information, see:

Question

Will your products work in my country?

Answer

Thank you for your interest in X10.com. Products sold by X10.com are designed to work with two or three phase residential power systems typical in the US or Canada: 110/120V at 60Hz, with some devices working at 208/220V at 60Hz. They do not function well, if at all, in other wiring environments. Units that send or receive powerline commands will generally not work with voltage converters. Entertainment and camera products are NTSC only. X10 units that send RF commands use 310MHz signals in the US and Canadian markets; all other X10 RF products we distribute use 433MHz signals. X10's current tablets and IP cameras do have multivoltage (100-240VAC, 50-60Hz) power supplies.
