How Home Director Works

The Serial Interface Module sends commands to the device modules for on-off and Dim control of the connected appliance or lighting through the house AC power wiring. The Aptiva computer, with Home Director Software installed, is used to program and send control data to the device modules via the Serial Interface module. The Serial Interface module plugs into a standard electrical outlet and connects to the Aptiva computer via the serial interface on the back of the system unit with the supplied serial cable.

  Dim control is for incandescent lighting only. Dim control must not be used for fluorescent lighting or for appliances.
