Are Alex10 days numbered?
« on: January 28, 2018, 06:58:49 PM »

With the release of the WM100 and the X10 WIFI app Alex10's life could be short lived.
Once a skill is created for this device I know I'll most likely stop using Alex10.
So when will that happen?
Although I enjoy working on Alex10 I really only run it for debugging.
I most likely will not stop using the HA-Bridge as I've integrated it for use with PCC and I can't see me giving up on it just yet. Although I feel the time is closing on it as well. :(

When the Alexa skill is available for the WM100 that'll be my trigger to buy one.  Alex10 is terrific  (Chr) but the WM100 will replace the CM15a, Alex10 and the HA Bridge and (hopefully) make things simple enough that maybe X10 can get a new foothold in the market that it originally created.  I hope the Alexa skill is a priority with them as virtually every HA hub has it included now.
