Can the EZIO4O be programmed using X10 commands? Specifically I’d like to program the relays’ timers using X10 commands to avoid investing in Insteon just yet. I searched the Homeseer site for a X10-based plug-in for EZIOxx but I think that all the plug-ins and scripts are based on Insteon.

Sorry, but timer programming can not be done through X10. Consider investing in a Smarthome PLC or Simplehomenet EZSrve to interface a PC or browser application to not only your EZIO4O but to an entire INSTEON/X10 network.diazhomeMemberJanuary 27, 2008 at 3:56 pmPost count: 3
Thanks, will do. What is the difference between a PLC and a PLM? Also, can my current X10 PLC (TI103) co-exist with the Insteon PLC or PLM?

A PLC is a controller than can plug into a PC, and is supported by 3rd part software. Depending on your environment, there are some free options out there, such as inhomefre (windows):
The PLC will sell contain timers, so you do not need to leave your PC on.
A PLM is just a modem, it itself does not contain timers. Products such as our EZSrver work with the modem:
The PLM is not nearly as well supported by third part PC applications.
Your X10 PLC should coexist, however both the PLC and our EZServer support X10, so it would not seem to be necessary to retain your X10 PLC.
