On Using an A3010 as a central heating controller:

Just what I was thinking. Problem is I dont have the skill or time to write such an interface. I really like the idea used by Harmony and HomeSeer on the PC of using a web server as the front end.

On Using an A3010 as a central heating controller:

I have lots of X10 stuff mostly bought from the UK and Belgium. Our house is a new build and so the wiring is reasonable good and so I have had good success with it. My only gripe is if you want to control it by computer you are stuck with PCs which envitably lock up or loose interest. I would love to use my RiscPC for this task.

On Using an A3010 as a central heating controller:

Interesting stuff this. Why dont you use X10 to control the heating and to read a thermometer over the mains? I would love to see X10 software for Riscos as the PC is too complex and prone to lock ups to leave on all the time. There are X10 thermometers available just needs a bit of software to read them.
