    MUCH BETTER APP! Much easier to use, and much much cheaper. I can control nearly any light in my house, from any internet connected iPhone, anywhere in the world, for 9.99, plus the cost of a module, (about $10 each, and the CM17, last seen on x10.com for like $40 I think)

    Guys like this, Melloware, need our support in what he does. Programs just work. No BS, no expensive hardware, but the promises of a programmer that the program works, just as its supposed to, when its supposed to...

    great, but the server is only for Windows! Crap!

    I use X10 all over the house, with a mac.
    is there a Mac-based server for this?

    You're welcome

    Seriously tho, home automation is far from new, and systems like X10 have been around for a while. There are better systems out there tho besides x10, and some that cost the same or only slightly more. There's a good list of them here:

    There is also a company called Savant that builds home automation hardware based on macs. Kool!

    Default No Way! X-10 is the affordable answer.
    The modules for this system are way too expensive. If you want to make lighting magic from your pocket just buy this starter kit - FireCracker Kit - CM17A - and download the iPhone application called - X10 Commander - From the application store for $9.99. This will get you up and running to control one lamp. Additional modules for lamps, wall switch lights, appliances and even flourescent lamps can be added for very reasonable prices. There are a number of different devices that will allow your PC (sorry windows based only) to be used by the iPhone application for controlling just about any electrical device in your home. Check out the required items for the X10 Commander application at the Application Store. I have been a long time user of the X10 devices in my home. I was very happy to find the app for the iPhone. It was very easy to integrate into my existing system.

    Thanks you all of you in this thread giving X10 Commander props. I am the developer of X10 Commander and I appreciate that people out there are using my product and it provides a cheap alternative for people already using X10 hardware to control from their iPhones and iPod Touchs!
