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

Hey it only took them a year and a half to get this close to true local Wi-Fi control.
How long till they get it right?
I think I'll put this module back in the box with my old X10 stuff and maybe take it out next year.
That is if X10 doesn't have their Wi-Fi hub released by then.

@ bkenobi
Just tested your Idea and that does work.
App displays "controlled by lan" and module does switch.
App still needs internet connection so for me this is no solution as I don't have a data plan on my phone.:(

Once configured in the app that may work. They do need internet access for initial setup and it appears the App always needs internet which kind of defies the local control if you have no internet.:(
I may give that a try if I get some free time ;)

X10 Modules and Switches / Re: LM465 behavior

If you use the LM465 Local Control Sensing. Cycling the local light  switch. From On to Off and back On and the load originally was Off. It will turn On as you have seen.

All the present X10 modules are receive only. So using the local switch to turn it On. Will not send a message that it is now On to any X10 controller.

The now rare two way X10 module also don't send a signal it was turned On locally. AM14A and LM14A are two I tested.
They do respond to an X10 Status Request to its X10 address.

Some of the other brand X10 clones where two way. Like my early Insteon Modules that could accept an optional X10 Primary Address and two way Smarthome X10 clones.

X10 Modules and Switches / LM465 behavior
« Last post by IBMJunkman on July 31, 2017, 12:26:51 PM »
Is this normal?  XM20A says Unit 4 is off.  Floor lamp with LED bulb is plugged into LM465 coded unit 4.  If I turn the switch on the lamp off then on the LED lights. The XM20A says it is off. I can turn it off with the XM20A. Was this always true with the LM465?

Does that mean that I'd have to set my router to keep those modules from accessing the internet?  That sounds like the easiest approach.

Today I finally got some clarification for local control.
The app is suppose to switch to local control when there is no internet.
The RED Lan Control message is what appears when this is happening.
no further details were given. :(

Most of the devices have a button that enables setup but also allows you to turn on/off manually.
I've been clear in my request that I and others want Wi-Fi control without the cloud or an internet connection.
The latest reply I got back is only some devices are capable of local Wi-Fi control but I've yet to get a clear answer to How that is done.
This time I asked if I have a device which is capable how is it done.

Interestingly while playing again with this at my wood furnace I would occasionally get a "controlled by Lan" message in red and the device would switch. This makes me think the app tests for internet and switches to local control  if not detected.
However if I disconnect internet from router the switch won't change status not do I get the Lan message.
Others have reported the local control wasn't reliable but never reported the app switched automatically.
