Questions

How do I setup my Slimline Switch?

Answer

The SS13A works with the RR501 and TM751 transceivers, the ActiveHome Pro interface, and the CM19A USB Transceiver. It lets you turn on and off three individually coded X10 Modules and brighten and dim lights connected to Lamp Modules and Wall Switch Modules. In the default state (after first fitting the battery), the SS13A is set to Housecode A. The top three ON-OFF rocker keys control modules set to Unit Codes 1, 2, 3. The bottom rocker key brightens and dims lights connected to Lamp and Wall Switch Modules.

Plug in an X10 Transceiver (RR501 or TM751, sold separately).

To turn on or off X10 Modules set to Unit Codes 1, 2, or 3 (on Housecode A), press the left or right side of the first, second, or third rocker key.

To brighten or dim Lamp Modules or Wall Switch Modules, press the number button first, then press and hold the left or right side of the bottom rocker key.

Attach the SS13A to a wall using double-sided tape or Velcro.
