Or - what current is the A/C and what plug configuration? The PAM04 is x10, and I hate recommending x10 and its only 20A, but it may work???

you can get a transformer to step down from 220v to 110v and plug in a zwave appliance module from there. of course you will need a 110v outlet somewhere nearby or a really long extension cord...
just google 220v to 110v transformer
i recommend the leviton appliance module though. i have burned through several intermatics over time but never a leviton so far.

Thanks. I looked at those transformers and I don't see how that would work. The transformer would convert the 220v outlet to 110v so I could plug the appliance module into it, but then how do I plug in the A/C unit to the appliance module? It also looks like most of those transformers are meant for use in european countries so they have the wrong plug. The 220v outlet I have looks like this; http://www.automated...dules/X10-PAM04

I haven't personally used one, but SimpleHomeNet makes this 30A module for Insteon and X10:
I use this unit to control a hot water heater that supplies only the radiant heat system in two bathrooms. This allows us to turn that heater off except for the early morning hours and weekends, which is the only time we want those floors heated. It works great - I don't think we missed a single morning all winter. Might be the most reliable piece of Insteon equipment in the house, come to think of it.
