X10 Software for Linux
From Tymm Twillman at http://mlug.missouri.edu/~tymm/
Sends commands to the Firecracker RF controller. It can send
signals to the RF tranceiver module to turn devices on, off, or dim. The
Firecracker has three advantages- it's dirt cheap (around $6), it's tiny,
and using RF lets you cross circuits easily.
From Daniel B. Suthers at http://heyu.tanj.com/heyu/index.html
Sends and receives X10 signals with the CM11A (ActiveHome). It can
report on the status of modules, set the clock in the CM11A, or
upload instructions to it for running later (in it's "crontab"). Running
heyu will start a daemon process that monitors the CM11A for
X10 activity, and accepts commands from heyu to send to the
CM11A to turn devices on, off, or dim.
From David Shaw at http://www.jabberwocky.com/software/xtend/
Works in conjunction with heyu. It monitors the output of
heyu's relay daemon, and can issue any command based on an event it
sees. For instance, that whenever something triggers the motion sensor at
code B3, an SMS email can be sent to your pager. Or make your computer
play a sound file when you turn on the X10-enabled light in that room.
Or even daisy-chain X10 commands so when security setups.
