CP290 Director is Macintosh software that controls the original X10 home automation computer controlled interface, model number CP290. It completely replaces the Macintosh software that comes with the CP290, and has unique features not found in other Macintosh-based CP290 controllers.

In addition to standard CP290 features, CP290 Director X supports the following types of events stored in the CP290: sunrise and sunset events, events with specific dates and repeat intervals, and even and odd day events.

X10 systems usually work reasonably reliably, turning on or off the selected module when the CP290 commands it. However, occasionally noise or interference in your wiring can cut reliability whereby a module is not turned on or off at the requested time. The best solution to this problem, if acute, is to install noise filters, signal bridges, or amplifiers. However, you may find that CP290 Director X solves the problem for you. CP290 Director X allows you to optionally specify that each "on" event should be sent more than once to the module, and/or that each "off" event should be sent more than once. Thus, if the first command to turn off doesn't work, the second or third one might. If you specify that an event should be sent more than once, it will be sent the specified number of times (two to four) at one minute intervals.

What is new in this release:

  • Improved Help.
  • Added email the author function.
  • Fixed bug with opening of event drawer.
  • Fixed bug with reset event button.


  • X10 CP290 home automation controller
  • USB serial adapter to connect CP290. Palm adapter not supported.
