The module list is constantly updated by the connected ActiveHome PRO system. If a module name, power, or brightness changes, the list will update with this information in a few seconds. Modules can even be added and deleted and ActivePhone PRO will stay up to date.

At Glance Indicators

The green lights on the module list display at a glance the power and brightness of each module. This information is also updated by the connected system, so you can watch your house state even when you are not there.

Invite Options

Web Links

3G: This link connects to the X10 reflector server and allows access to your mobile application from outside your local area WiFi.

WiFi: This link connects directly to your ActiveHome PRO system through your local WiFi network.

Security Options

Use Security for WiFi: This option appends a Xid parameter to your WiFi link. This is more secure since it adds an element to the URL which is specific to your system and harder for an intruder to guess.

Reset Security Key: This will change your Xid security key. Use this option if you have given your link to someone who you no longer want to have access to your system, or if you suspect your old key has been compromised.

  • Note: This will reset your key for ALL X10 mobile applications and you will need to update your links accordingly.

Reflector Connection

Redquestion 14x14.png : There is an error connecting to the X10 Reflector server, and the 3G link is currently unavailable.


HTML email

HTML by default will be the content type of the email sent containing the invitation links. Some older phones may not support HTML as an email content type, and this option can provide compatibility with these phones.
