This should control any lights, dimmers, switches configured in HG even X10 I'm currently using it for both X10 Switches and one dimmer

I have some smart led lights that work w Google home and Alexa, but I do not yet have configured in HG.

Is that what this would be used for?

I was able to control via SmartThings prior which is a pain for any newbie.
However there is away to get Google Home talking with HomeGenie now that is a bit less work. it is still in the testing phase but anyone with HG can get in on the testing.
This took me a bit to get working here but I believe it was more my phone then anything else.
for those wishing to get Google home integrated and working with HG you'll currently need to become a tester and install this HG program in device and things. you'll need a Google email account as well.
To become a tester see this thread:

I just downloaded the updated tools programs (I did not have to do anything with the Widget - it just automatically updated with the new info)

I first deleted the old Status Info program then uploaded the new one, as well as the Memory and Drive Cleaners.

I did a Before screen cap, then ran both the cleaner tools, and took another screen shot once it updated - looks like I got quite a bit of space back

** Ugh looks like I overwrote the Before screen cap I took but MemFree was around 61K and is not at about 181K

The new program is ready with a couple extra memory read outs Total, Available & Free. I also will include a RPIi Drive &RPi memory cleaner. These tools realy only need to be done after a RPi package  install to clean up left over things from a install. They may clean up things after a HG update. I'll atempt to get a updated package ready and posted by the end of day. (Chr)

Update: New package is now available!

Learning I could so easily improve my Pi ZeroW performances I figured it may be interesting to display other memory stats like Total, actual available and what is actually free. With this info I discovered both PIs were not  starting out the same! :o
Though both boards came from the same supplier one has more initial memory ::) :`)
This is adds to the reason of the lower freed memory. When looking at what was actually available memory boost was about the same percentage gained. Also though these tests were done on RPi ZeroW boards all pi boards can benefit from this! ;>

I started to experiment with cleaning up my RPi system in hopes to get a bit of a performance boost. I wasn't to concerned with free space but figured I'd look into this as well. what I was trying to do was free up some Memory as these little boards are low on this to begin with.
I figure I could free up a few KB which would speed things up what I wasn't expecting was the amount of memory I was able to free.
looking at the attachment in the previous post you can see I had 58956 KB of free memory viewing the attached you can see I over tripled the amount of free memory to 175588 KB.
That's totally unbelievable 😲 I then attempted to do the same on another Pi Zero w. This has a few more things running so I wasn't expecting anywhere near the performance boost, and I was right I didn't get anywhere near the freed up memory However it was still close to double what it was sitting at.
This was achieved using more then one tool and some require root access.
These all free up cache so the performance  increase is short lived but so far my system is still performing with increased free memory a day latter with over double still free on one machine and about 1/2 extra freed on the other. I expect this memory tool once I've got it all figured out and posted will be a popular tool for HG.

I've been trying to think  what info users may wish to see in a widget for the Smart info app beyond what is currently in the tools package. :`)
I myself like to see how much free space and memory I have available.
While playing around I noticed my free space was getting dangerously low.
turns out I hadn't expanded the file system. (CZB)
A simple readout showing my disk size would have brought this to my attention real fast.
The information that you can get from a RPi board is staggering. so this app could get very large if one wished to expand on it.
I've added a few extras to this widget that I plan to include in the next tools pack update.

This adds the option to email the specified email addresses (yes you can specify as many as you like) when the module is switched on.
This works for all HG device types (Lights, Switches, Dimmers, Sensors, Door/Window, Sirens…..)
I've tested this with X10, Zwave, Philps Hue, WeMo, Virtal Devices, and Ha-Bridge configured devices. So virtually anything you wish to be informed of when turned on, opened or switches to a status of 1, is now just a few simple clicks to setup. ;)
Download and  and unzip the attached zip file then from HG Messaging and Social click actions and import program.
browse to the unzipped E-mailer folder and click on 1016-Smart_E-mailer.hgx to install it.
if you have any Ideas to expand on this programs possibilities feel free to suggest them or If your into coding add them your self.
However if you do modify please share your improvements or fixes.
Questions are never to dumb so ask away! ;)
Use at your own risk! I can't be responsible for you spamming your self or others! rofl

This simply gives you 16 dummy modules simular to AHP for those that need something to hold a on off value. or for triggering other events
