X10 General Topics / X10 ESP8266 WiFi interface
« Last post by Jeff on December 05, 2017, 04:48:35 PM »
This thread concerns the possible development of an alternate X10 WiFi interface using the ESP8266 to replace the serial interface in the XTB-232.  The goal is to provide a robust X10 powerline interface with a WiFi interface to a controller using the CM11A protocol.  I have already confirmed it is possible to replace the serial interface circuitry on the XTB-232 PCB with the ESP-0S1 WiFi board, and will be working on a prototype PCB as time permits.

If the switch will not turn on, it may be on the opposite phase from your controller.  Try plugging your Maxi Controller into the same circuit and see if that works.  Obviously, both house and unit codes must be set the same.

If the switch will turn on, but not off, the fluorescent light may be injecting noise onto the powerline when on, preventing the switch from decoding the off command.  In that case you will need to prevent noise from the light from reaching the switch.

Since you can't control it directly from AHP? By turning on and off in the GUI. I would suspect a power line problem. Like a signal sucker or noise maker. As the WS469 uses power line commands to control it.

Are you using the CM15A controller to transceive the X10 RF commands to the power lines or another like a RR501 or TM751?

If CM15A. In the Tools, Hardware Configuration Tranceived House Codes. Make sure the House Code you are using is enabled.
I use Specific and pick the House Codes. Sometimes Auto doesn't work 100%.
Try rotating the House and Unit Code dials a few times. I have seen intermittent dials showing one setting but actually on a different setting.

Jeff has a great set of troubleshooting tutorials if you have not seen them.
X10 Modules and Switches / ws469

Just installed a second new WS469 relay switch since the first one died immediately after installation. This new one works fine locally but is not responding to RF commands, maxi controller or Active Home Pro commands. I set it up as a florescent switch as someone here suggested but that doesn't seem to be the right designation.
Any and all ideas on how to get this switch to work properly with remote commands gratefully accepted !

I'm told a production run of 4 weeks has been scheduled to begin next week.
The Authinx owner has said he'll freight fly in a shipment as soon as some roll off the line.
He intends to offer these to those on the x10 forum that are interested by giving advanced notice of a sales page publication.
I guess they'll be the beta testers.;)
I never pressed for details as each time I do a delay happens. :(

I'm told production will take about 2 weeks  so you should be able to order before the new years, well before next Christmas for sure. ;)

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but they've already missed the window for this holiday season so I guess it will be old hat by next Xmas.

I've just been informed Authinx is moving forward with production of the WM100.
Hopefully the Apps will be relatively bug free before the first unit produced. ;)

I believe this test unit to be a Release Candidate so I'm looking at ways to access it without the app.
In an attempt to get some type of communication protocol I've downloaded and installed Wireshark.
Sadly I've forgotten how to use this and the new interface is not even close to what I remember. :(
I've been able to find the IP and Port  of the HUB and calls to the HUB are seen as is the reply from it though I can't get past that. :(
I believe the HUB is looking for info contained in the QR code in order to make a connection.
Initially any smartphone that has the app still needs to scan the QR to connect may be it has a coded user& password.

Thank you for keeping us updated on the progress of the unit and software.
