Questions

How do I setup and use my Maxi Controller?

Answer

To install your Maxi Controller, simply plug the power cord into any functioning wall outlet. Using a small screwdriver, choose one of the 16 letters on the Maxi Controller's Housecode dial.

All X10 Modules have a similar red Housecode dial. Set the Maxi Controller and all the Modules it controls to the same Housecode letter. Plug a lamp or appliance into an X10 Lamp or Appliance Module.

To turn ON a Light or Appliance

Press and release the number button corresponding to the Unit Code set on the desired module (The Unit Code can be found on the number dial on your module). Then press the ON button.

To turn ALL lights on (Lamp Modules or Wall Switch Modules set to the same House Code), press the All Lights On button. This key does not affect Appliance Modules.

To turn OFF a Light or Appliance

Press and release the number button corresponding to the Unit Code set on the module to be controlled. Then press the OFF button.

To turn off ALL modules, including Appliance Modules, press the All Units Off button.

To Dim or Brighten lights

Press and release the number button for the Lamp or Wall Switch Module you want to Dim or Brighten (Appliance Modules cannot be dimmed or brightened). Then, press the Dim button to dim or the Bright button to brighten the light. Hold the button until the desired light level is reached.

You can control Modules in groups by pressing 1, 2, 3, etc. followed by On, Off, Bright, or Dim buttons.

Modules that are set to 1, 2, and 3, etc., will then turn on and off or brighten and dim at the same time (as a group).

The Finder Label is a convenient place to indicate the locations of lights and appliances. There is one box for each unit key.
