Authinx Inc?
« on: September 16, 2013, 08:08:18 PM »

Tuicemen,

"Authinx Inc" who apparently operates the website "x10pro-usa.com/x10-home.html".  In their "About Us" section [x10pro-usa.com/about-us] they say they are taking over X10 Automation.  Do you know anything about the company?

X.

X10pro has been a player for like 20 years.  Their focus has always been on HA so they never got much into software or cameras.   Their original intended customer base were the armies of x10 professional installers - not diyers.   The niche arose since the consumer x10 hardware got a bad rap for dependability.  Typically x10 pro products came with much longer warranty.  So they didn't quite compete directly with x10 but coexisted side by side.   So yeah I guess they will have taken over the market by default. May not be a bad thing - they always seemed a bit saner to me than wti.

Over in the JVDE X10 Forums. A user posted that Authinx Inc. Is owned by Tim Forehand and he also is the owner of  "The Home Automation Store".

I have purchased from Tim Forehand before. He is on the level and gave me a square deal.

FWIW
I don't believe the old "X10 Pro" spin-off from X10 (USA) Inc is the same folks as "X10 Pro-USA".

I also am inclined to say separate companies.
X10Pro was in Tampa, FL.
Authinx Inc is in Flower Mound, TX.

First I would like to thank Tuicemen for creating this forum. He, along with Jeff and several others have provided fantastic support to the X10 community on the original X10 forums and now on the new forums.
Thank you Tuicemen, Jeff, Brian, Dave and the many others.

I am posting on this old thread just to add a cautionary note to the otherwise apparent good news of the Authinx/Home Automation takeover of the defunct X10. It is good to know there may be some future, however, unlike others, my experience with Home Automation has been less than stellar.
Two years ago after repeated attempts at communication, I finally received an RMA and returned an XPCR that was apparently defective out of the box.

Despite repeated follow-ups, I never received another response from a live person, nor did I ever receive any credit for the returned item.

Thank you for the information. Though not too encouraging.
