1 Cinnamon Cove Computer Club Using your PC to control Lights etc.

2 Why would I do that? If you have a security system the odds are that you were told that making your home looked lived in helped deter intruders. Making sure your driveway is free of snow and that flyers and other things dumped in your mail are cleaned out is one option. Having lights come on and go off in normal sequences is another.

3 Options There are several options available; Today we will talk about two; X10 manufactures and sells the devices; SmartHomeUSA sells devices from X10 and several other manufacturers
