X10 Mini ControllerThe X10 Mini Controller’s small footprint makes it a perfect fit for those small spaces like your bed nightstand. This compact X10 controller controls up to 8 different groups of X10 compatible receivers. This mini-controller has everything you need: DIM/BRIGHT control and ALL LIGHTS ON, ALL UNITS OFF button.

The X10 Mini Controllericon is easy to setup!

  • Plug the power cord into any wall outlet (make sure it works).
  • Set the slide switch on the top of the Mini Controller for the Modules you want it to control (unit codes 1 through 4 or 5 through 8).
  • Using a small screwdriver, choose one of the 16 letters on the Mini Controller’s House code dial.

All X10 modules have a similar red House code dial. The Mini Controller and all the modules it controls need to be set to the same House code letter.

How to Use the X10 Mini-Controller

Turn a Light or Appliance On
Press and release the TOP of one of the 4 number keys for the unit code of one of your control modules.

To turn all lights on (i.e. all lamps connected to Lamp Modules or Wall Switch Modules set to the same House code), press the TOP of the All Lights On/All Units Off key. This key does not affect Appliance Modules.

Turn a Light or Appliance Off
Press and release the BOTTOM of one of the 4 number keys to turn a specific Unit code off. To turn off all modules, including Appliance Modules, press the bottom of the All Lights On/All Units Off key.

Dim or Brighten lights
Press and release the TOP of the number key for the Lamp or Wall Switch Module you want to Dim or Brighten (Appliance Modules cannot dim or brighten). Then, press the TOP of the Dim/Bright key to Brighten or the BOTTOM of the Dim/Bright key to Dim. Hold the key until the desired light level is reached.

The X10 Mini Controllericon is a nifty X10 gadget for about $15.99.
