 +===== Controlled Devices ===== 
 +NetHomeServer interfaces with the CUL transceiver via the [[cultransceiver | CULTransceiver]]-Item. Via the CUL device the Nexa and X10-devices can be controlled ​and via Pronto codes virtually and device that uses pulse encoding on the 433MHz band. 
 + 
 +The CUL 433 can also tap in on the [[powermid|PowerMid radio protocol]], enabling it to also send the messages as IR and thereby controlling appliances like DVD-Players.
