The W800 (full name W800RF32A) is an X10 wireless receiver from WGl Designs
The W800 is a serial device and requires a USB Serial adaptor.
Since it is a serial device you can connect multiple devices to XTension at the same time to improve reception or coverage.
The W800 receives standard X10 devices, remotes and motion sensors as well as the security devices, door sensors, motion sensors and security remotes.
The W800 has a coax connection for the antenna and so a higher quality antenna can be used.
The picture shows the W800 as attached to my board in my data closet via cable tie on a pegboard.
The W800 supports connection to XTension via a Wiznet or Barionet or other Ethernet to Serial adaptor. The proper settings when configuring the remote device are 4800 baud, 8 data bits,1 start bit and CTS/RTS selected as the flow control option.
