My apologies for butting in if it  feels like hijacking!

I've been doing a lot of work, a lot of testing, and a lot of research building my new HA system. I've got several hubs - Wink 2, Smart Things, and Hubitat (Hubitat being my favorite for local control). I've got Zigbee, Z-wave and Wi-Fi switches and plugs, plus Hue bulbs. I'm also starting a project to integrate some of my X10 gear in.

One of the most exciting product lines I've put my hands on during this time has been the Shelly modules. They're roughly twice the cost of Sonoffs - the Shelly 1 is available in a two pack on Amazon for $24 - but the firmware is so much better out of the box - they have a local mode, they support MQTT, and they have a cloud version. What's more, they anticipate that you might want to flash your own firmware, so they expose headers for just that purpose (this is only the Shelly 1, not the other products). The app is a lot more polished and the company is VERY responsive to feature requests from users. The thing that sold me, however, was when one of the company VPs told me that they'll be UL listed in the next couple of months. I don't expect Sonoff to ever do that based on what their reps have told me.

I've got a couple of the CE listed modules on my desk now as I am experimenting on how I will integrate them with my Hubitat ecosystem using MQTT.

I'm  away on a two week holliday so unable to check the server. I do remember removing some images and this may well have been one removed due to download errors I'll  look into it as soon as I get back. You can install the Raspbian stretch image for the offical raspberry pi web site the use the instuctions on this site to install HG. It realy is very easy.

Is the download of "Pi 3B + Raspbian-stretch SD image" possible?
I get an error when I click on the download link in the post ("Page not found

Please check the spelling of the URL you were trying to access and try again)
Thank you

I suggest posting the issue on GitHub as the issue is either HA-Bridge or the Alexa server.
If you have skills that are working it is most likely ha-bridge and a setting in it.
there is a link to GitHub at the top of HA-Bridge  "help/readme" then open issues in the page that displays
 Be sure your running the latest version of HA-Bridge prior to posting.

 There is likely a setting in the bridge control screen that is incorrect. I believe the "UPNP address" needs to be that of what the machine that HA-Bridge is running on not localhost or although others have no issue there. Also others have reported web server IP address needs to be unless you have changed it that should be what it is.
As well near the bottom check the "emulate hub version" is set to 9999999999 and the "UPNP send delay" is at 650 if the number is to high Alexa may be timing out before the first device full info is sent.

Welcome aboard odmu5322!
Alexa has revived a lot of users X10 setup and caused many to dust off old modules they had boxed up and filed away several years ago.
Voice assistance has also driven may into the Pi world as they can create a Google mini or Alexa dot from these or just use them for X10 software giving the voice assistance even more power.

Hello everyone
I am new to this forum that I discovered when "Amazon Echo" arrived in France. My first use was to interface Alexa with my X10 network via Alex10.
I will take advantage of all the experiences and expertise present on this forum to enrich my skills.
Have a nice day

you will only see devices in HA-Bridge that you add from Alex10 or manually add in HA-Bridge.

I'm not sure what you mean by adding devices manually in Alex10 in the program or in its settings xml file.

Adding devices to its xml will only display them in Alex10 as Alex10 send device info to the HA-Bridge when you create them in Alex10.
you can add devices in HA-Bridge either in the program or by editing the data file but you risk corrupting the data file if you edit it.
As for Alexa not seeing devices this is a common problem and not just for HA-Bridge.
I think it may be an amazon server issue, but there are several issues posted on the HA-Bridge GitHub pages for Alexa not seeing devices.
I myself have had Alexa stop seeing devices only to start seeing them a while later with out me doing anything, even running  HA-Bridge from my PI I've experienced this.

Found a new problem CM15A was not working looks like old batteries corrosion may have put it out. Lucky I had a spare

So now all devices are working from the HA Bridge test on and test off.
The HA bridge file is in the alex10 folder.
Could thier be more the one HA bridge file and the worng one is loading?
Yet still alexa will not discover any devices.
Tried truning off all fire walls no help
Should I see other devices besides the x10 in the HAbridge?
Can I add the devices manually in the alexa app?
