John Woodward has done it again.

CP290 Director X programs the original X10 home automation computer controlled interface, model number CP290, with a great looking program that makes the most of what the CP290 can do. Like its predecessor program for OS9, this version supports sunrise and sunset events, events with specific dates and repeat intervals, and even and odd day events.

The real plum in this software, beyond its reliability, ease of use and great looks, is that it resolves an annoying problem with X-10. Occasionally signals do not get through and events don’t happen. John has resolved this by providing the option (settable in preferences) to send command twice. A necessary feature for those of us in older homes.

John has been working hard at updating this new release. It is solid and I highly recommend it.
