The IR543 Command Center sends commands over your existing house wiring to control lights and appliances around your home. You plug lights and appliances into X10 Modules (sold separately). The Command Center also works with many X10 Universal Remote Controls so you can use the same remote that controls your TV, VCR, etc., to control your lights and appliances. The Command Center also works with the CK11A ActiveHome system to initiate macros (routines) so you can set up a “coming home” routine which is initiated when you press a button on the Command Center. For more information, see the ActiveHome Owner’s
Manual which can be downloaded at: http://www.x10.com/support
1. Set the Command Center’s Housecode dial to match the X10 Modules you want it to
2. Set the Command Center’s slide switch for the group of X10 Modules you want to control
from its buttons (1-4 or 5-8).
3. Plug the Command Center into any convenient AC outlet.
4. Plug a lamp or appliance into an X10 Lamp or Appliance Module (sold separately).
To control Modules from the Command Center’s buttons:
1. Press the corresponding number button(s) for the X10 Module(s) you want to control.
E.G., 1, 2, 3, or 4 (or 5, 6, 7, or 8).
2. Press the ON or OFF button to turn the X10 Module(s) on and off.
3. To brighten or dim lights connected to X10 Lamp Modules and Wall Switch Modules (sold
separately), first press the corresponding number button(s), then press and hold the
Bright or Dim button until the desired brightness level is reached.
4. Press the All Lights On to turn on ALL lights connected to Lamp Modules and Wall Switch
Modules (set to the same Housecode as the Command Center).
5. Press the All Units Off to turn off ALL X10 Modules (set to the same Housecode as the
Command Center) including Appliance Modules. Note, All Lights On and All Units Off
affect all 16 Unit Codes (not just 1 to 4 or 5 to 8).
You can control Modules in groups by pressing 1, 2, 3, and 4 (or 5, 6, 7, and 8), followed by
On, Off, Bright, or Dim. Modules set to 1, 2, 3, and 4 (or 5, 6, 7, and 8) will then turn on and
off, or brighten and dim at the same time (as a group).
To control Modules from an X10 Universal Remote: Follow the setup procedure in the owner’s
manual for the Universal Remote to set it up to work with the IR543 Command Center.
