Local Control for Lamp & Appliance Modules
What is the local control feature on the Lamp and Appliance Modules?
The local control feature allows you to turn on the Lamp or Appliance Module without the use of an X10 controller. To use this feature, turn the physical switch on the device being controlled to the OFF position, and then back to the ON position. The Lamp or Appliance Module detects the change and turns on. This is a handy feature when you are sitting next to a table lamp, but the remote is out of reach. Note: This feature will only turn the Module on. If you repeat the process--thinking that the Module will switch off--the Module will remain on. In order to turn off the Module, you will need a controller to send the off command via the house wiring.
