Re: Energy use in "off mode" with X10 modules and LED light bulbs

To get a lamp module to work with LEDs and CFLs and low-power incandescent, you have to remove components associated with the local control feature.

If you are ok with doing mods to your appliance module, open it up and locate the 100K resistor (brown-black-yellow bands) and the 330K resistor (orange-orange-yellow bands).  Chop both out of the unit. Or at least clip one lead of each.

The local control feature won't work, but LEDs and other low-power bulbs will work fine.

This will also reduce the quiescent power drain of the module.
