Consumers should be aware that the WS13A X10 Decorator Wall Switch Module responds to the All Lights On command, and care should be taken when they control large appliances. X10 appliance modules, like the PAM02 3 Pin Grounded Appliance Module, or an SR227 X10 wall receptacles should be used if you intend to use the All Lights On function and don’t want your appliances to respond.
For single-pole applications, leave the “control” terminal unconnected.
Because these switches respond to ALL LIGHTS ON, use care when controlling non-lamp loads. Use an X10 appliance module or wall receptacle if you don’t want your device to respond to that command.
