 [1] Or even OpenWrt (, etc) running Mochad                                    

Contemplations

I've choosen mochad over node-x10 because mochad allows us to run pimatic on a different host as the X10 controller is attached to. For example, you can run your mochad instance on OpenWrt, while running pimatic on your Raspberry Pi.

Configuration

Under "plugins" add:

{
  "plugin": "mochad"
}

Under "devices" add (something like):

{
  "id": "CM15Pro",
  "class": "Mochad",
  "name": "CM15Pro",
  "host": "192.168.1.11",
  "port": 1099,
  "units": [
    {
      "id": "light-kitchen",
      "class": "MochadSwitch",
      "name": "Kitchen Light",
      "housecode": "P",
      "unitcode": 1,
      "protocol": "pl"
    },  
    {
      "id": "light-living",
      "class": "MochadSwitch",
      "name": "Living Light",
      "housecode": "P",
      "unitcode": 2,
      "protocol": "rf"
    }
  ]
}   

Some cool rules

if it is 18:00 then turn Kitchen Light on

if button "All lights off" is pressed then tell CM15Pro to send "pl a all_lights_off"

if it is after 23:00 and CM15Pro receives event "rf a all_lights_off" then push title:"Good nigth!" message:"Sleep well, sir!"

if CM15Pro receives event "rf a9 on" then turn Kitchen Light off and turn Living Light on
