There is a file in c:\program files\home control called x10comm.exe.  This program will accept arguments on the command line for control of your X10 modules.  The syntax is as follows:  "x10comm.exe a1 on" to turn a module on.  If it is a dimmable module, then use the following:  "x10comm.exe a1 dim to 020%"; the percentage is listed as a 3-digit number with the percent sign after it.           Related Articles

Question

How do I use command line arguments to control my modules using Activehome?

Answer

There is a file in c:\program files\home control called x10comm.exe.

This program will accept arguments on the command line for control of your X10 modules. The syntax is as follows: "x10comm.exe a1 on" to turn a module on. If it is a dimmable module, then use the following: "x10comm.exe a1 dim to 020%"; the percentage is listed as a 3-digit number with the percent sign after it.
