X10 PRO has made a change to the XPT bases and the keypads. You need to be sure you have keypads and bases that will work together. The newer version of the keypads and the bases have an "A" designation on them (for example XP4-W A or XPT A). The newer bases look better when they are installed in that they sit back in the wall further giving a more flush appearance with the wall plate. The metal mounting tabs are deeper but the base enclosure is thinner which means that the overall depth of the XPT base is the same as the older version. There's no worry about them not fitting in the electrical box that an older XPT was originally mounted in. The older style stuck out from the wall and honestly just looked odd. The main difference, electrically speaking, is that the newer version "A" keypads will not work on the older NON "A" bases. Also, the new "A" version XPT bases will not work with the older NON "A" keypads. Why X10 made them electrically incompatible is unknown. They could have saved a lot of problems by making the new bases so they'd work with the older keypads and vice versa. With this change, you have to be certain you have the right keypad with the right base. All of the bases and keypads I carry are the newest version and are all compatible with each other.

This is the X-10 PRO in-wall ivory keypad model number XP4D-I. It has four buttons for 3 unit codes in sequence ON and OFF and one button for DIM/BRIGHT. Attaches to the newest version "A" XPT transmitter base module (sold separately). This will not work with any of the NON-A version XPT bases.
The XPT base transmitter module wires into a single gang wall box with a simple two wire connection. One wire connects to the AC HOT and the other to NEUTRAL. You set house and unit codes on the base to the first unit code you want the keypad to control. The next will be the following unit code in sequence. For example: Say you have a 4 unit keypad and set the XPT dials to B-4. The keypad will control units codes 4, 5, 6, and, 7 in housecode B. If you just have a single button keypad for one unit, it will control B-4. You simply attach whatever keypad configuration that you need to the front of an XPT base transmitter. Keypads are available in either white or ivory to better match your decor.
To attach a keypad is easy, you slip the top tab of the keypad under the metal tab of the base transmitter, then push the bottom of the keypad all the way in so the keypad pins are inserted into the XPT base socket. Then put on any decorator style wall plate. You can mix or match keypads at any time as your requirements change. You can even wire in several XPT transmitter bases to set up multiple keypads to control all of your X10 modules from one wired-in location. Think of it as a mini-controller that's mounted in the wall.
Like a mini or maxi-controller, the XPT base transmitters generate their own X10 signals and put them directly onto the powerline. You don't need a transceiver. An XPT transmitter base and keypad combination does not directly control the electrical load, but rather sends out X10 signals to wall switch, wall outlet, lamp, appliance, and in-line modules to control them. Those modules do the actual load handling. The XPT is also a smart transmitter in that it automatically monitors the AC powerline for noise and other X10 signal activity and will not transmit until the line is clear.
