Architechtronics Announces Chameleo PLC, a Device that Bridges X-10â„¢ and UPBâ„¢ Commands for Use in Home Control Products

Architechtronics, a home technology manufacturer based in Bothell, WA announces their newest product, Chameleo PLC. Chameleo PLC is the first product on the market to provide a simple translation from X-10â„¢ to UPBâ„¢ technologies for use in a variety of home control products. The Chameleo PLC is the first in a complete line of Chameleo products to be released in 2006.

Chameleo PLC allows current X10™ users to intermingle UPB™ technology at a reasonable cost. "Many users of X-10™ technology would like to upgrade UPB™ because it provides higher reliability, functionality and other capabilities,†explains Architechtronics co-founder Brett Griffin. "In the past, this has been difficult because X-10™ and UPB™ could not communicate with each other, and often older controllers are not compatible with the latest lighting control technology. The Chameleo PLC makes it possible to replace or upgrade one or more switches with a UPB™ switch as their budget allows."

For the user, it’s simple — install the Chameleo PLC and it is ready to translate any basic X10™ command to a corresponding UPB™ command. Replace your X10™ lighting controller with a UPB™ lighting controller, and the Chameleo PLC will translate commands from the new UPB™ controller to older X10™ devices.

Chameleo PLC will be shipping in January of 2006. Architechtronics is offering $10 off plus free shipping on orders with payments received by January 15. For more information on Chameleo PLC, including pricing and distribution please visit the website:
