    5Improved design
    By John L
    I needed one of these to replace one that went bad after several years. I bought two and they work great. The house code adjustment is easier to to adjust quickly in case you use more than one code for different parts of your house. Be sure to get the LEVITON WHOLEHOUSE Multi-Phase Blocking Coupler (also here) to put on your house Neutral wire to block signals going out to other homes or comming in from them. It also bridges the X-10 signal between legs of your electrical service. I have used X-10 for over fifteen years. Plug-in lamp and appliance modules have a life expectancy of about three to five years. I never had a built in switch go bad. I also use Activehome Pro programmable controller. It is never dark during waking hours unless we override it.

    5Works Great - Priced Right
    By K. Gibbons
    After our old Radio Shack controller of 20 plus years died, we found this and got it in a couple of days. It worked just fine with our old modules so we're happy. Our original controller had lots of buttons and this one only has 4 sets which can control 8 modules by using the toggle switch between 1-4 and 5-8. And of course you can use different lettered zones to control even more modules, but that's not as convenient although relatively simple to do. We're glad we found this at such a reasonable price.

    UPDATE: Still working great four months later, but I see the price has gone from around $10 in August of 2011 to nearly $30 in December of 2011. I'm not sure it is worth that much.

    5Step saver
    By Randy Gibson
    Power my pool light and pool waterfall with this controller. This is the 3rd one in 10 years. Considering that it stays outside in the Arizona heat and is used in the summer a lot, the controller its worth it.
