I still cannot execute a "bulk" sync on my iPad Air 2. However, if I make a change to a device from my android phone, the iPad app is updated.  So, it really does seem like a time-out issue.  I was able to "sync" my iPad by making changes from my phone to all of devices that have timers, etc.

Yup, iPad Air 2 will not sync iOS 11.4.1.

X10 used to have a protocol for window shades. Don't think it ever got off the ground in North America.

Most of the window coverings I install are zwave. They're a real pain to program,  but work very well once set up.
HomeGenie has Zwave code built in which I've yet to play with. There are a few Zwave devices I'd love to add to my city setup so I may dig into that this fall.

I've started to test the latest HomeGenieBe installers. One line of code to paste into the terminal window so it is simple easy for newbies.
There are some issues that need to be worked out but HG looks like it is starting to move forward again.

Plus I am in the middle of another Home Theater Upgrade[/i]. But the current heat-wave could cause the lawn to go dormant. That would open-up a little free time.  :)
The home theater is where alot of linux software has been focused arround.
This is realy one of the aspects that drove me to using a PI.
There are several Linux versions that are built stricly for the home theater (booting directly to kodi)
Several of the available Linux HomeAutomation softwares also have a Kodi addon, and Kodi its self has a X10 plugin.
I'm still on the fence about Home Assistant, there are many very sklled X10 users on this forum and which ever software we jump on will benifit.
The WM100 will drive many to Linux I belive and possibly using a SBC like the Pi.

. I just ordered my RPi 3 B+. No prime day specials but giving it a go. Time to get off the fence.


I thought the same when I  ordered my Pi 3. It didn't work out... maybe I was ahead of the curve by a few months. But if this works out for you guys.... I'll order a  RPi 3 B+ and follow.



I'm by far no expert with linux but on the same note I'm comfortable with it. I do know my way around the basics so that will help. I admit I had a huge learning curve when I first touched a linux system. Heck, my first time installing a linux system I had no idea how to answer the hostname prompt. rofl

Me too when I first tackled it. The Raspberry Pi has opened up Linux to many recently. It's practically all cut and paste now. Very little can go wrong now if you follow the instructions exactly as advised.

Can HA record data and display it in a table?  I'm envisioning a way to record a temperature sensor for example and see a chart and tabulated data.

I'm sure you can using compatible sensors. Just Google Home Assistant sensors to find ones compatible with it. Everything is recorded in the logbook so I'm sure you could extract the relevant information to formulate your chart.

I've been working on and off for the last week setting up and configuring Home Assistant and the more I dig in the more I'm adding to it. It's a lot easier to set up than some of the commercial alternatives too. Scripts and automation are its strengths.

I'm also not a fan of AWS being the only way to comunicate with the WM100. We need local control for when this server goes down which it does from time to time. Usualy not for too long of periods thankfully.
