X10 WiFi hub

Does anyone have experience with the new X10 WiFi hub WM100 (https://www.x1
0.com/wm100.html)?
Besides general impressions, I am particularly interested in knowing whethe
r it needs connection to a remote server. (The description claims you can c
ontrol devices from your phone "anywhere you have internet access," but the
product manual does not describe setting up an account anywhere.)
I would also like to know whether it has an API that would allow programmin
g from elsewhere than the phone app.

Is the WM100 configured properly? My first thought is that the house code is set incorectly, but that is just a guess.

It could also be the house circuit issue. Does it work if your dryer or stove is on? If it does there are components that allow the command signal to cross from one 120 v to the other in you house wiring.

Thw WM100 only uses 2.4 GHz WiFi, your phone may be connecting to 5 GHz so it won't see the WM100

ing from elsewhere than the phone app.
First, the phone app communicates with a dedicated server in the cloud (onc e the WM100 and your app are configured properly). The Server then communic ates with the WM100.
Second, as of now the API is not published so if the server goes down your WM100 will continue to operate as scheduled, but you will not be able to is sue changes or commands. A power failure will then wipe out the existing c onfiguration until the server comes back up and you reconnect with your app .

Never had a issue with it losing connection, except when when I changed out routers, had to reset.
