Wow! I was having some trouble setting up client/server functions on PC and especially Android app. Not sure what I did but it just started working. Love it! Had a bunch of X10 stuff in a closet but now have reason to bring it out. I had all but given up! Thanks!!!

Nicely done... Much better than what x10 offers. As a developer, I can appreciate the work involved.... Thanks for keeping it free...

Works Great!!! AHV works great!! I have been an X-10 user since the 70's and I was using "Autom8" on my Android phone for control, but it was temperamental.It's nice having AHV on my phone and tablet for remote control.

Re-read the X10 protocol specifications (date back to the 70's) Did you not realize that A1 is a valid X10 command? As is A2, A3, ... you can see where this is going. Send A ON after those three and all three light up simultaneously. Send a DIM and... you get the picture. Send another unit code command and start the selection anew. Send A ALL LIGHTS ON or A ALL OFF and all A units are deselected. Radio Shack sold X10 remotes (PLC and IR) that could do this back in the 80's. RF protocol can't support it, which is why RF remotes have fewer buttons. ;) Of course, SmartHome's apps make the same mistake, but they are trying to kill off X10 in favor of Insteon,.ActiveHome Pro is the last software they made that could implement most (if not all) of the X10 protocol as intended. You also need to be able to send such commands to program various X10 devices as well. SmartHome's LampLinc modules come to mind. Can't add to scenes, remove from scenes, set ramp rate, etc. without supporting basic X10. Can do it all easily enough with a 30 year old IR remote or table top control.
