Marmitek ProGuard800 joins X10 security and home automation

Marmitek ProGuard800 Home Automation and Security Panel

As you may know one of the biggest disadvantage of X10 is different protocols for security and automation. So, you should have two separated devices – automation controller and security panel to cover both areas. Marmitek tries to make a life of DYI-ers easier by producing ProGuard800 security panel. With additional X-10 Home Automation module it’ll allow control dimmers, switches, sockets etc from the same panel.

The TheProGuard800 uses radio frequency to communicate with different types of sensors which makes an installation procedure easier and more conformable. Additionally the ProGuard800 can be integrated with telephony using PSTN or GSM modules. So, you’ll be able to control your home or receive notifications using mobile or landline phone.

The TheProGuard800 is already available for £400 including the security panel itself, two motion detectors, door/window sensor and keyfob remote control.

USB CM15Pro With X-10 ActiveHomePro Software is launched

Marmitek USB CM15Pro

Recently Marmitek launched its new product – USB CM15Pro With X-10 ActiveHomePro Software. It includes a logic engine and 8 times more memory then CM12 (I even don’t speak about my CM11) which allows to store over 1400 timers and/or macros. To communicate with wireless X10 devices CM15Pro sports built-in RF transceiver. So, you don’t need separate TM12U transceiver module to receive events from the MS13E occupancy sensor.

Traditionally CM15Pro is shipped with X-10 ActiveHomePro software which allows to configure and control all X10 devices in your home as well as add various scenarios. The ActiveHomePro is based on Windows and it’s absolutely free (you can download it from the Marmitek’s web site).

Personally I maintain a healthy skepticism about X10. There are more modern and power technologies such INSTEON, PLCBUS or Z-Wave in the home automation area. So, it might be more useful to produce INSTEON devices for European standard then develop dead-end technology.
