New Wijit wi-fi modules.
« on: June 21, 2017, 08:52:58 am »

These came as a result of Authinxs x10 Wi-Fi module(hub) development and were created by the factory.
Authinx stated these are low cost, low end HA devices, and easy to setup.

Note: These are not X10 compatible
I have a hub and module enroot so I'll post more later.

So my Hub and module arrived (actually got the 3 module set)
These are nice little units and very quiet turning on/off led lights red when on.
The hub is the exact same size as the modules.
These do suffer from interference as I tested with a cell charger plugged in next to one as well as it pulled directly into a module. On would work but not Off. :(
My Hub got very hot during testing so I'll be watching it closely.

The app currently has a lot to be desired. :(
This is truly low end other then a click sound there is no indication you turned on/off a device.
I haven't tested over the internet yet but since I don't see a way to specify connection in the app I'm doubtful that is doable. :(
The only things you can do besides add/remove/rename modules is on/off and all on/off.
No timers or scenes
Setup is very simple but a smartphone is needed an emulator wont work.
An emulator won't work even once the hub is setup as the only way to access currently is with a QR scan.

Did some more testing  and kept an eye on the hubs heat.
The Hub never got any hotter and stayed about as warm as my router.
I don't believe the Software for this is up to par and hope a update will becoming shortly.
If the factory that came up with this will release the protocol or a SDK this might be a nice cheap DIY HA package. (Chr)

Well the app for these is not very stable after some use I put the Wijits back in their box. today I unpacked them for some more testing. opened the app but it failed to load. (CZB)
I attempted several times before uninstalling and doing a reinstall, this also failed to remedied the issue.
I managed to install to a old phone but unsure just how long that will stay working. (DH)
I managed to learn the RF codes for modules 1-4 for use with the Broadlink RM and the RM Bridge.
I'll post these later today.
interestingly once learned the Wijit hub is no longer needed if you use the Broadlink  `:)
This should allow Alexa control so that will be my next experiment with these now that the hub is not needed.
