Thanks Dan,
I believe that is the emulator I originally played with on my development PC.( at least it sounds familiar >!)
I'll reinstall it and see how it goes!

Yep that was what I had used Prior.
The Wi-Fi app will connect to the Wi-Fi module and control devices. :)%
WireShark also shows info being past to it  :)%

I guess not for Christmas, but hopefully early in 2016. Nothing official on x10 site.

We were all hoping for a Christmas release :'(
Sadly I haven't heard anymore other then a small initial shipment will be flown in and those who have requested a promo code will get first dibs at securing one.

I guess these things take time, especially when dealing with a Chinese manufacturer. The x10 people should at least put up a 'coming soon' item on their website with some specs, photo, model#, etc.

I know there are a few items that they were hoping to have out for Christmas.
One they actually have the hardware ready to go. However the software end of it didn't get done in time.
With the Wi-Fi module there may be another software update before the actual release. ::) :'
Unless it is the same developer B:(

I just got a update on thie Authinx wi-fi module.
There is good news bad news! ::)

Bad news: :'(
 The release date has been set back once again B:(
 The owner wishes to express his apologes on this and due to the Chinese new year it looks like the earliest release will be March.
 The reason, TI the chip manufacture discontinued the chip the Wi-wfi module was to use.
A small quantity of 100 or so was found but rather then build a obsolete product Authinx decided to go with a new chip.

Good news: :)%
TI the chip manufacture is working with Authinx to get the new chip ready which should speed up things.
This new chip will allow options the other didn't and means the second version of the wi-fi module is what will be released.
I had asked about the software as well and it looks like it will remain the same.
However the protocol is different with the new chip which will mean a minor rewrite.

I see they are still using engineers who trained to drive trains.  :(

The ESP8266, introduced about 18 months back has been a huge success in IoT. It sells for less than $1 in any quantity, has 100m+ transmit range, and is essentially a plug'n'play solution to WiFi. There is open source code for it in C (Arduino code) as well as 2-3 versions of Basic. Any company designing a new WiFi enabled device that doesn't use it, have their collective heads up their asses.

Given yet another delay, I'll go ahead with my mod for the older, through-hole CM15A which adds WiFi, a better RF receiver, a better antenna system, a serial connection, an open source communications protocol, open source firmware for the hardware, etc.

It appears so
I'm realy surprised they stuck with this manufacture given their mentality was the same as X10WTI.
Authinx has tried to change them but it looks like it is going to be a long road if they continue working with them. :(

I suspect this manufacturer's ownership is the same as X10WTI.

Understandable delay, things happen. But it's taken so long (at least 2 years based on this thread) to develop this product.

Authinx isn't happy with the delays either. I think they figured it would be easier to do then it panned out.
But then again if they had went with the initial unit using old X10wti standards we would have seen this the 1st year
I just hope the product works as well as the proto type. Actually I hope it works better and they can add all improvements suggested which they said will be in the second generation unit.

News is a iOs app is near completion for the Authinx Wi-Fi module.
With the factory building the module  like most factories in China will shut down starting tomorrow for CNY.
However progress is being made on reprogramming the chip.
Things are looking good for a March release.
Unfortunatly we've all seen delays before ::) :'
