I've not tried Voice Monkey yet but it does sound like a nice fit for alerts from HomeGenie.

I am using Voice Monkey in combination with Homeseer and UNIFI cameras. Using the person and vehicle detection from my Unifi G4 cameras, I have Alexa announce that there is a person near the door or a vehicle in the laneway. It works well.

I am surprised at how much I like the phone notifications. Even if I am mowing the yard (and because of mower noise, completely out of contact) the alerts remain there on the phone for me to see (when I eventually do pick the phone up).

The more I think about this the more I think it's a signal issue.  Can you move the CM15A to a different outlet today? Ideally it'd be an outlet on the same leg as the light that won't turn on and located near your electrical panel.

I don't believe AHP or the timer is the issue but a noise or signal sucker issue.
If the timer works from the PC then it is possible the timer isn't actually getting downloaded to the CM15 may be the USB cord has become faulty. Have you tried a different USB cable.

I once had a lamp (with a incandescent bulb) when it was turned on, only 1 other X10 device on that circuit would respond (on but not off). It took a bit of time to route that one out. ::) :' luckily having the house just rewired I knew the path the wire traveled. A module just before it worked but nothing after it.
I'd check for things that are on the same circuit as timer controlled light.

Nope, the computer is typically not connected  to the CM15A but it's not on the same circuit anyway. I understand the noise potential, but why does it work so perfectly when I send commands t the CM15A via RF or by connecting it to the computer?? Surely the noise is the same when the CM15A send the powerline command.

I can view temperature of my pi and the sensors via HomeGenie on my phone but now Alexa or Google will tell me that. I have a skill also for my wifi home thermostat but that doesn't tell me the Temperature where my pi is located. The DHT sensor isn't  the most accurate but it is close and cost pennies. Took 2 mins to hook up but 30 mins to work out the code. Now that the code is worked out it shouldn't  take more then 5 mins to add to another pi.
I played with adding a DHT sensor to a esp chip last year with success but I turned it into a wemo alexa hub for x10

If the CM15A is on the same circuit as the computing equipment.
Computer power supplies are many times a noise maker or signal sucker.

Several of my YoLink device "reads" the temperature..... but the only way I can "view" it is with my phone. And I can't do anything else with the information.

However... YoLink does make a device:  YoLink Smart Wireless Temperature & Humidity Sensor, Wide Temp Range (-22 to 158 Degree) for Freezer, Fridge, Green House, Pet Cage Monitoring, Smartphone Alerts, Works w/Alexa IFTTT -Hub Required

I am thinking of adding it to my setup with the idea of freeze protection (voice and phone alerts).

All good suggestions. I will try them tomorrow. Really nothing else is on. I'll have to verify what all is on that breaker. I can try with the PC connected and I'll also try a different time. Stay tuned. And BTW, no LED's. Yes, other lights come on at dusk as scheduled. There are 5 others all on separate switches and they all work daily. The timer is right.
