Mayhem compatible with older home automation

Jul 18, 2012 at 6:05 AM

I'm not a programmer and I was wondering if the Mayhem application is compatible with older home automation solutions like X10.

I use the Mayhem to control my X10 units and it works great. You can choose reaction and run C:\Program Files\Common Files\X10\Common\ahcmd.exe. In the syntax put the sendplc or sendrf depending on how your sending the signal. Then the house code and unit code, then on or off or dim %

like this

"ahcmd.exe sendplc A1 ON"  this would turn your unit assigned to A1 on ... and so on...
