Ha-bridge HG helper
« on: June 25, 2019, 02:45:40 PM »

HA-Bridge has a new helper build it for HG devices for those still using or wishing to use HA-Bridge with HG.
You may wish to download and test the RC5 build of this especially if the amazon echo bridge fails for you.

I've only just been able to test this my self and from reading the feed back no one is testing the HG helper add.
Although it does see 98% of my HG configured devices it also shows some not configure as well the names don't display currently for all X10 devices.
It does display all names of other devices I currently have configured (ZWave, WeMo)

Is this so you can see / edit devices for HA bridge on the embedded interface in HG?

No this is to make setup of HG devices simple in HA-Bridge. It discovers all switches and dimmers in HG and allows you to add and rename the device for Alexa. Since the echo bridge interface doesn't work if HG security is setup (at least not currently for me) this allows a more secured HG setup to be used with Alexa. You don't have to worry about calls to HG as the scripts are auto created now.

OK - sorry its still early and not enough coffee yet (plus been very busy and trying to catch up on all the great X10 posts since May). 

So...  You use this with the integrated Alexa Interface in HG or not ?

You can but it isn't  needed unless the intergrated  echo bridge fails to work for you.

I've not been able to keep up with the RC testing for the HG helper untill recently. Bwssystems has added the ability to see lights,switches,dimmers and options to add additional HA types one may configure in HG like Sensors. However these additional types must have the ability to turn on/off. This allows HA-Bridge to give Alexa control to a broad range of devices, more then the HG Echo Bridge service currently supplies.  :)%
