I know the type of the devices, but us far as I know you can set on their back which device to trigger.
I only have recieving devices here. So i'm not qiute sure what will happend in this situation :
Motion detector detects motion and sends ON to A1, A2 and so on.
Is anything sent to computer? (it doesn't have a code assigned to it, so I only hope that I will be informed via X10 protocol)
Can you search your CM11 logs (in /var/log/pluto/) for string "CM11A wants to notify us of Something"
You're thinking about it wrong. X10 can certainly be set up that way, but that is NOT the way it's done when there's a computer involved.
I have a motion detector, M1, near the mudroom door on my porch. I have exterior lights, interior lights, etc., all with their own housecode/unitcode.
When M1 goes off, it wirelessly sends M1 ON to my W800RF, which goes into the computer. If this were a wired device, it would send it to the CM11A.
The point is, you don't set the motion detector to "turn on a device" -- it IS the device. When it says ON, the computer decides what to do based on user-controlled "programming".
For example, here's a typical rule:
WHEN M1 changes from OFF to ON
AND M1 has not been triggered previously in the last 30 seconds
AND homeowner is AWAY
THEN turn E10, E11, and E12
AND trigger the Speak Package Instructions script using FRONT PORCH SPEAKER.
I see "CM11A wants to notify us of Something" in my logs all over the place.
P.S. In accordance with the laws of nature, my server died this weekend. I have to rebuild it over the next week or two
