X10 replacement recommendations
« on: October 18, 2016, 03:44:16 pm »

I have been an X10 user a long time.
Seeing the issues with the new company not updating the software....
While I am not looking to spend a hug amount of money, I am looking for recommendations.

I would also like something (if possible) that will also use the X10 devices.
thanks...

Are you looking for software or hardware?
There are many 3rd party softwares that will support X10 devices as well as other protocols.
I've played with a few different protocols all have their quirks.
Even different Wi-Fi devices that I've tried have left a sour taste in my mouth and now sit in my box of unused HA products.
For the money you can't beat X10.

The new company hasn't updated AHP because the code they have is a mess, I know I've seen it. Also they have been busy with the Wi-Fi module and software for it. I'm told it is on track for release later this year (possible for the holidays).
Yes we've all heard that before but my fingers are crossed that there are no more delays.

Hello.  I am a new member.  I have been using AHP for the past 15 years and all in all have been very happy with it.  When I got a new PC with Windows 10, I lost my original software but was finally able to get up and running again. Last week my CM15A module started acting up - would turn on lights but would not turn off.  I tried to update the module timers but there was no indication that anything was happening - from what I remember, it used to show that the CM15a was updating.  Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas?  From what I have been reading, it seems like the new owners of X10 are supposed to fix it by the end of 2017.  Are there any recommendations on some other software that would work with the X10 modules as I have quite a few installed.  Thanks in advance

Lights turning on but not off is a sign that you have them configured wrong in AHP.
Your lights most likely need to be configured as old lamps (non softstart)
If AHP is in the C:/Programfiles(x86) folder move it to C:
If AHP isn't displaying as registered get and run AHP-Lifejacket.
