Wireless door bell

Added another lamp module to the home automation system for the book shelf lights in the lounge today. I also modified a KR19 RF keyfob to operate as an X10 wireless door bell by locating two traces on the pcb that operated button two ‘on’ and soldering the two wires from the door bell push button to these traces, hey presto: wireless X10 door bell. When someone presses the door bell misterhouse announces through the speakers that there is someone at the door and logs it to a file. If I am out then it also sends a sms text message to my mobile phone. Huge grins for very little work!
