SmartCloud and HA-Bridge?
« on: March 09, 2018, 11:55:30 AM »

With the HA-Bridge adding support for the Broadlink RM I've been thinking about this.
Although SmartCloud was created to allow my Google mini to control X10 I like the idea of not running a java program on my PC.
HA-Bridge is java.  ::) :`)

It is currently possible to send IR and RF to the Broadlink hubs but this requires and Android app to be running. Adding the new HA-Bridge would eliminate that requirement.
As well it would eliminate the need for a X10 PC interface to be attached to the PC.
It would also eliminate the need for the AHP SDK or AHP to be installed.

I'm on the fence with this though I may experiment with it.

Currently SmartCloud can only control X10 devices.
Adding HA-Bridge support would allow control of any device configured in HA-Bridge even IR and web request calls.
Original I had thought of adding HA-Bridge support but I may just enable it if using Alex10 or PCC.
I've also been playing with ideas for eliminating SmartCloud and pass commands direct to the HA-Bridge from SmartThings.

I had started to code for this, however since there has been no in put on this, I've decided to shelve the idea for now.
