Some X10 home control installations can be affected by 'noisy' devices, where a light or appliance injects interference that is of a similar frequency to the X10 signal. This interference can result in reduced reliability from the X10 system. The majority of X10 installations do not have this problem and any that do are normally only affected by a single noisy appliance.
For those that are affected though, the good news is that Envious Technology now have a plug-in filter available in the Australian plug type. If you are experiencing any problems due to a noisy appliance then the FM10 filter will suppress this interference, increasing the reliability of your X10 system. Simply plug the FM10 filter into a power point and then plug the offending appliance into the FM10, it's that easy.
Typical interference sources are lights and appliances that do not dispose of their own generated noise, some known offenders are some (not all) compact fluorescent lights, LCD/Plasma monitors and computer screens. Normally, interference generated by normal household devices do not pose a problem due to the special dynamic filtering techniques used by the X10 system. However, a particularly bad device may affect your X10 system but you can isolate the interference simply by plugging the device into the FM10 filter.
The FM10 may also assist in stopping noisy devices from affecting other mains transmitting devices, such as Powerline Networking adaptors etc.
