The TM13 Transceiver Module is the central receiver necessary when using Remote Controls, Wireless Switches and Wireless Sensors. The TM13 Transceiver converts the signals from these devices to the X-10 Protocol on the mains, so that all X-10 Modules can be controlled via the mains.
The Transceiver Module contains a selector switch for the House Code. The HouseCode of the TM13, the modules and remote controls have to be set to the same letter code to be able to control up to 16 X-10 modules.
The built-in Appliance Module can be switched with a command via a wireless controller, such as a Handheld Remote Control, or via the mains using the X-10 protocol. The built-in Appliance Module always responds to Unit Code 1.When the Transceiver Module is combined with the CM11 Computer interface, the TM13 functions as a ‘gateway’ to transmit signals from remote controls and other devices to the CM11.
Using the TM13, any macros stored in the CM11 Computer Interface can be activated using a wireless remote control and all X-10 addresses can be controlled (max. 256 modules).
The Transceiver Module has a plug and switched socket and can be connected without extra wiring.
Reading the status of the TM13 is possible with the use of the CM11 Computer Interface.

Failed after a couple of days

Though it worked well for a couple of days, I'm not impressed that it then failed. We had to switch lights on by hand round the house until I put back the old unit (which has been intermittent).
X10 remote works fine

This was a replacement for a dead X10 remote controller. The replacement worked as expected. Good product at a reasonable price and delivered on time.
