  WebIO Internet X10 Web Server

WebIO Internet Home Automation

WebIO is an Internet to X10 control network gateway, providing both local and remote Internet control of lamps, appliances and other electrical devices in the home or office. Utilizing X10 technology, the WebIO sends signals down existing AC power lines to control X10 modules. The WebIO contains a built-in web server allowing device control by remote users with Internet access via Smartphone or computer running a web browser.

WebIO Internet X10 Web Server v2.0

The WebIO (seen above) connects to your Ethernet network and communicates to devices over the AC powerline.   The WebIO web interface as used on a smartphone.

WebIO is built on the idea that an expensive and complex personal computer is not needed to provide Internet access to a control network. Instead, WebIO is a low cost, small self-contained box that provides all the functionality of an Ethernet to X10 gateway and web server that is as easy to install as a home Internet router.

WebIO version 3 with wireless temperature sensors

This new WebIO model includes all the X10 control features of WebIO version 2.2 along with the addition of a wireless receiver for reading of wireless temperature sensors. Version 3 also provides the additional option of using an external wireless X10 transmitter as an X10 transceiver or using any one of the Powerline X10 transceivers supported by version 2.2.

The diagram to the right displays many of the features, remote access, control and monitoring options available for use with WebIO v3.

Controlling X10 Devices

The WebIO web browser interface provides two methods for controlling X10 Devices. The Control X10 Labeled Devices page (shown to the right) allows for easy control of X10 On/Off commands for user defined devices.

Another method for control is to use the WebIO Send X10 Codes web page which allows for many more control commands and device state query functions. Also allowing manually selecting X10 device House code, Unit code, and Command to be sent, timer repeat funtions and ability to send a command to multiple units.

WebIO TCP/IP Networking

WebIO provides an RJ45 interface for an Ethernet connection to a local area network. An IP address may be assigned to WebIO from a DHCP server or a static IP address can be set via the WebIO web interface or PC WebIO Setup utility software.

For remote monitoring and control, WebIO requires a routable Internet connection, allowing a user to connect to the WebIO from anywhere in the world via Internet browser.

WebIO network access security is provided via user assignable passcode. WebIO configuration settings are protected from unauthorized web access via program-mode switch located on the WebIO back connection panel. Additional security requires user supplied VPN device or other network security systems.
