Any software of firmware updates scheduled?
« on: April 03, 2018, 06:45:53 PM »

When can we expect some updates to take care of the issues?  It's been a while.

Issues are being worked on. The last attempt to fix the DST issue many are experiencing failed :(
I'll see if I can get an update on progress.

I could live with the DST bug until November.  I would be nice to see the sunrise / sunset issue corrected as that changes every day.

I did present a couple of options for a dusk/dawn fix or work around to them. One was if the offset times were increased users could set that while they waited for the DST issue to be resolved.
I understand the owner is going to China next week to sit down with the factory management and take in some electronic shows.
Hopefully that doesn't mean we'll have to wait till he gets back before an update. ::) :'

Make sure your passport is up-to-date..... then offer to tag along.

I did some manufacturing in China for a telephone product I invented about 20 years ago.  I learned that while the Chinese can do an excellent job making things to whatever quality level is ordered, their software expertise left something to be desired.  The main problem was just a lack of understanding what or why something was important to a US consumer.  For example, China has only one time zone and no DST (sunrise is after noon in western China!) so they don't have an appreciation for what we deal with here.
 A better course for Authinx to be more responsive and have a more sophisticated product would be to develop the software here - or even India - and just build the products in China.  As HA hobbyists we like to tinker and are willing to put up with some development inconveniences but if Authinx wants to go head-to-head with the current crop of HA brands they need to step up their game.

I'm just hoping the impending trade war does not adversely affect this project.

1-2-3-4, I declare a trade war.

Yes it has started :( and we'll all lose before it is over.
I also hope this project doesn't get affected by it.
 I don't see a trade war affecting free software updates.
Future hardware developments may get side tracked if this escalates and lasts long.

You've watched WAY too much TV. Trade tariffs, fee's, and taxes are imposed by EVERY nation on Earth. Whereas there are at least 22 armed conflicts at this point in time.... none of them involve trade. All are merely people killing other human beings.

Calling a trade dispute... a "war".... is like a lawyer calling litigation... a "fight". It is a misuse of the language. No humans bleed during litigation... and no humans are harmed during trade negations either.

Back when I was beta tester for the CM14A, Jim Phillips would send me an update every few days.  I'm surprised it is taking so long for an update for the WM100.  If the protocol is released maybe programmers here can pick up the task.

I keep hounding the owner about releasing the protocol.
I believe the manufacture wishes to hold on to it as a sercuity blanket.
We certainly would have had a user created skill by now if it had been released. Maybe we'll see that come out of this trip. ::) :'

I assume the manufacturer produces the WM100 to order and spec of the owner, including hardware and firmware. Would I be correct in assuming that. If that assumption was correct what hold could the manufacturer possibly have over the owner Authnix.

Surely Authinx could shift production to any location of their choice in the event of manufacturing or logistics difficulties. It would be a silly manufacturer to place all their eggs in one basket in this ever volatile world we live in.

Has anyone stripped down and examined this WM100 yet to see what is under the hood. That's the usual route when code isn't forthcoming.
