Title: Reviving old X10 modules to work with Google Home
Post by: tuicemen on December 27, 2017, 01:53:06 pm
I've  been using X10 automation since the 80s and this protocol has worked well for me over the years.
I created a front end for Ha-Bridge when I first got Alexa but now that i have a google mini  control through the Bridge is no longer possible.
I played arround with Smartthings and a RM Bridge and SmartThings does work for X10 too.
However i discovered I don't need the Rm bridge and broadlink to control my x10 devices via Google.
Using the smartthings cloud  I  can use their app and skill no Hub required ;)

Huh?  Glad you got the GH working this way, but this is G(r)eek to me!   ;)

(http://tuicemen.com/forum/Smileys/default/roflol.gif) Only the early Home Automation adopters and DIYers will probably be interested in reviving their X10 modules.
IFTTT also works well for X10 and Google. Both have their Pros and cons so I've mixed and matched.
I created a small listener that listens for the Web requests from each and then triggers the correct device.
