I acquired a couple of new old-stock PR511 floodlights if anyone is looking for one.

For those that haven't notice or read elsewhere alex10 and the bridge have been updated to include more security.
This allows one to access the bridge from the web with some means of security.
Even if you don't plan on accessing the bridge from the internet it is strongly advised to update to the new Alex10 and enable the secure bridge. ;)
This way only users with authorization can access the bridge if your PC gets hacked.

thanks for pointing that out,
I very often fail to check posts for grammar prior to posting. ;)

Sounds like the project was time and materials based :)

Watching a story about Liftmaster door openers and their Smartphone app made me think about an X10 Smartphone app. Sorry to see WiFi is not going well.

Tuiceman, you are consistent. :) I hate to be a grammar nazi but...

Threw is past tense of throw.

Through is the word you want. An informal version is thru.

Wi-Fi / Re: Sonof modules (Itead Studios)

Well distance to my outdoor furnace from router is 50-60 feet.
Should note even my Samsung smartphone had troubles from this location.
I suspect the metal furnace was absorbing the signal as I have gotten over 100 feet with my phone open air.
Also the standard sonof module worked fine from this distance prior to hook up.

Lately my router even has difficulty connecting to closer devices at the off grid place so I suspect the radio in it is on the blink.

I never tested these things to actually see their range as most things I connected these to were fairly close to my router.

What kind of real world range were you seeing?  I've seen people claim a range of hundreds of yards/meters.  I think many of those claims were open ground though.

Just a bit of an Update on these.
I got tired of waiting for Sonoff to release a protocol or sdk and the cloud (well  maybe not the cloud but their app)
The smartphone app for these is a pain to setup and unless you use it regularly will forget you.
when it forgets you the process of setting up has to be redone.

I ended up flashing a save voltage version and using a third party firmware.
This allows me to make a direct call to the device without the cloud or iteads app.
the outdoor furnace plan at the off grid place was a bust the range of the Wi-Fi signal just wasn't reaching my router well enough to be reliable.

They have actually gone through several designers (developers).
The last device shipped to Authinx for testing wouldn't stay connected to Wi-Fi (that was a year ago I believe)
I told them I thought the Manufacture was stalling and dragging things out.

Wasn't that the stuff that was designed after the LAST Chinese new year?   :o

I just received an email from the Authinx Owner on this.
He stated they didn't expect to recoup their investment any time soon if at all?
The manufacture is still dragging this out stating they are now testing with the newly designed software and expect a release version available shortly. 
I wish I had better news but will continue to keep everyone updated.
