    On the web site click on the security link, then automation. please note these packages are not listed as X10, but most definatly are.

    In store they are usually located by the Close Circuit camera displays.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for that, I see them now.

    Any idea where I could buy the IR -> x10 receiver?

    Oh, and I want to buy a wall light switch too? (ideally one that enables to set moods or scenes)

    Thanks

    Alternatively try www.protectdirect.tv. They stock the starter kits at very good prices. I haven't bought any myself, but I've heard of others who have.

    The site is slow and a pain to navigate, but the stuff is there. They also do alarm kits.

    I'll remember that link Steev when I want to buy some modules (£15 - much cheapness!).

    Not much there for home automation though... shame!

    I've got two complete timer kits up for grabs for anyone wanting AM12U or LM12U units (or wants to get started in X10). Each kit includes the (highly versatile) timer unit, a lamp module and an appliance module. Unused and boxed ready to post. Thirty squids each plus special delivery anyone ?

    Mike.
