My involvement with xPL has come to an end. Automation has moved on considerably over the past few years, and it is now possible to buy a stand-alone controller off the shelf for a reasonable price, without having to spend hours writing your own code.

This website is being maintained as a record of my xPL development work up until 2011.

I have released the full source code of all my xPL projects into the public domain. You can download the archive from here.


  Online Retailers

Note: I only link to retailers that I have personally used, and am happy with.
That's no guarantee of perfect service of course, but it's better than nothing!

Let's Automate
Large range of HA gear. Supplied my ZWave devices.

X10 Specialists. Supplied my Barix Exstreamer.

Cyber Select
Supplied my X10 modules and the W800RF32 rf interface.

Everything for your home network. Patch cables and structured cabling accessories.

Very competitive prices for computer parts.

Burn Media

They're owned by B&Q so the money goes to the same place in the end, but at least you don't have to fight for a parking space.
