A WAF increase!
« on: January 16, 2018, 07:12:51 PM »

Many of us old timers have been trying to increase the wife acceptance factor of a X10 automated home for years.
The introduction of voice assistance helped a lot but this unit actually got my wife to ask for the app on her phone. :)%
Looks like I might beable to toss all the x10 remotes laying arround into my x10 storage bin or maybe the trash.( I know thats where my wife would like to see them  rofl )

.... Looks like I might beable to toss all the x10 remotes laying arround into my x10 storage bin or maybe the trash....

My PalmPads have made it back to storage with the exception of the one (2) in the Home Theater (because of volume levels. But I got an Echo voice remote for there.

Looking for a misplaced wireless keyboard/mouse dongle the other day.... I searched the USB ports of 4 unused laptops and 4 (also unused extra) full sized PC's. Which made me wonder why I had purchased a Raspberry Pi unit anyway. Your not alone with extra tech stuff that may need liberated.

Little plug-in HA interfaces/HUBS.... programed/monitored/controlled via a phone... may be the space clutter saver/simplifier we need.

Yes I agree this little thing can be plugged into any hard to get at outlet once all phones are configured.

Mine just arrived!
I don't think it was there earlier. But it was a tiny box in a white plastic wrapper.. covered with a skiff of snow... my IR camera could have missed it last night. Now.... where is that manual? And I'll turn on the printer.

Dave w help update the manual spending a lot of time fixing small issues typos and such.
I don't believe the manual is posted yet as Authinx was to add higher end graphics.

That's OK... I may be able to wing it. Right now... with an abundance of caution... I am allowing the HUB to acclimate to room temperature (it got cold outside) before I stick it into the wall. Found a nice plug for it... gathered a sheet/list of modules and switches unit/code locations/names.

Make sure you can access this outlet until you have all Phones configured to it as each phone needs to scan the QR code.
The reason is each Modules QR code is unique it contains a password for communication.
The app is really self explanatory the manual really isn't requires it is just something I suggested so users that were sitting on the fence about getting a unit could have more info prior.

It is a good Idea to let the unit warm up prior to plugging in! ;)

Yep not my first [QR code] rodeo. I take a pic of the codes on my phone which I can use for other phones. Then I also forward the pic to my PC so its also available at a later date.

Excellent Idea since you can then scan from you PC monitor and won't have to get at and unplug the WM100!  :)%

Re WAF increase, Daniel Suthers (creator of HeyU) recently had a health scare that caused him to consider how his wife would handle HA when he may no longer be around. He decided on "moving everything off Heyu and onto the Alexa platform."
