HA-Bridge has several helpers included but not for HomeGenie as yet.
http://www.homegenie.it/
info on the program API and web API can be found here https://genielabs.github.io/HomeGenie/

I'm creating a Pi image which includes HA-Bridge and HomeGenie and geared towards the X10 community.
Having a helper for HomeGenie would get more using HA-bridge for Alexa as many newbies find it difficult setting just one device up in HA-Bridge.

Will put it on the list, but since this one is pretty simple, it may be a while

For others interested in doing it themselves, here is the HomeGenie api link https://genielabs.github.io/HomeGenie/api/mig/overview.html

That's a shame a simple add is being put on the back burner.
The Image I've created is due to roll out Christmas if not sooner on the X10.com forums and I'm sure there will be lots of users looking for an easy integration of their modules with HA-Bridge.
A good number of those members currently use an old obsolete windows program designed by X10 and are looking for Alexa control.
I hope you can fast track the add being it looks like an easy add.

I'll chime in here in support of that. Once the PiX10Hub is released the demand will be there. By January the should be quite a few users.

@bwssytems LOL
No one expects anything so extreme. ;) It just seems to me if it as easy for you as you suspect, it could be added to the next build. When ever that might be.

Many long time X10 users have very large setups and they would benefit from this as they try to add Alexa control.

Just putting it in perspective. It does take time as I have to test the api interfaces. And, I already have a version out for testing that I am not adding too at this moment.

Understood, I didn't mean to imply you were shrugging the suggestion off. You've done a great job with HA-Bridge. I'm a mazed at how HA-Bridge has progressed even in just in the last year.

Gene, Let me add my thanks for the work you have and continue to do on this project. With X10 not having any real capability to develop it's software, Home Genie stands to become a standard for the X10 community. Speaking of which, X10 sure could use a developer like yourself on their team either as an employee or contractor and Tuicemen is on a first name basis with the owner of X10. Apologies if I'm overstepping but maybe worth a look?

So, I am not Gene from G-Labs, that is the person that developed HomeGenie. I had looked at that software int the past, but it was originally for Windows and now it is adapted to be able to run on Linux. I will have to to take a look at it since it is very nice.

@bwssytems I think part of the confusion may have come from me leaking the info to incorporate both your HA-Bridge and Gene's HomeGenie into a preconfigured Pi image. This has lead some to take another look at both on Github.

@bwssytems it has been brought to my attention that my request sounds like a demand.
I'm truly sorry if my request I came off like that.
Please don't take it that way as it was not my intention to be demanding anything.

@bwssytems add one more to the list of folks who would like to see a Home Genie helper implemented in the near future. Thanks for developing HA-Bridge!
