Instructions on how to set up the Alarm system. This is a very good example of triggering lights in an automation setting. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jsL_fAJ5-5w

Another funky version of the notification system. A little bit more instructive https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5yUiY52_-GQ

Homegenie is basically a platform agnostic program. It was originally designed to run in Windows but it can now run in most of the Operating Systems available today. It was because of this it was chosen as an ideal software to set up on a single board computer like the Raspberry Pi. Being a server software it does not require all the peripherals like monitors, keyboard, mouse etc attached.

It was chosen along with the Ha Bridge to form the basis of a Pi X10 Hub. Of course it was the installation that was going to be the biggest hurdle. That's now been resolved with the download image.

What further information do you require on the setup and use.

Mic_  My whole AH setup is running of a Pi ZeroW board it runs every thing AHP ever did and much, much more.
The Hub will even allow you to view your X10 Airsight cameras if you have them(samples included) However it is possible to view almost any IP camera made.
I'll be posting the Setup and install of the PiX10Hub image tomorrow if all goes well.
I can tell you that there are a couple of pieces of software you'll need to get to write the image file and install the Hub. These will run from almost any platform.

@T - Suggestion: It might make finding the tutorial easier for new folks if the link in the News header pointed directly to it.

One I posted elsewhere. How to create an automation macro http://forums.x10.com/index.php?board=168.0

The link noted just goes to another board, on which I do not see an entry for a macro how to video (unless I am missing it).

I am trying to find a way to duplicate an AHP macro I had where if someone manually turns the light on to my back deck, it will turn off after 10 minutes.

I created a Program in HomeGenie, but not 100% sure I have it configured correctly.  I think the Trigger Code is what would be used to identify the light that was turned on, and then the Program code would have a Delay of 300 seconds (for 5 minutes) and then issue the command to turn off the light.

Is there a better place to look for assistance / tutorial for how to set up a Macro/Program ?  Thanks
