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.

X10 turned me into a Software programmer.
A warning label should have been added ;)

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. ;)

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'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. ;)

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. :(

If the controller were available for purchase today, 2 day shipping would still make it a viable xmas present!   ;)

Well I don't see it being available to anyone before Christmas. :(
I just got the latest firmware update on the week end and the latest App today.
About 2/3 of the issues I previously reported were fixed and one small thing added.
I'm told they aren't going to focus on any more adds till after the release, just bugs, which is good.
However there is still one issue which causes the app to crash (that may be just my phone), the others are minor.

Overall the app and WM100 are currently, for the most part, performing well ;)

Authinx has a few production built units that the owner flew in, the rest are on a slow boat from China. So if you don't snag one of the first available units you WILL have to wait till after the Chinese new year!
The Initial release price is to be $99 US which I thought was a bit high until I started to compare other X10 offerings from other companies.
The current hold up with the release date is the Apple app approval process which can take up to a week baring no issues.

The unit is to go on sale Monday Jan 22nd and will be in the news letter if you signed up for one.
Users who opted in to a insider deal will be sent a special link for an advanced purchase option.
Hopefully those will be sent out before days end! ;)

Jeff and i both have one of these production units now.
All I can say is they are worth the wait these are quality devices unlike previous X10 WTI distributed modules.
Jeff has done some testing and I understand has a look under the covers :)

Yes, compared with prior devices produced by X10WTI, this is clearly a new era for X10.
