HST Releases New HomeSeer 2.0 Software


Staff member

Bedford, NH – A new version of the award winning HomeSeer Home Automation Software was released this month by HomeSeer Technologies LLC. HomeSeer 2.0 is an entirely new application that takes advantage of the latest computing technologies, including the Microsoft™ .NET Framework. The framework allows the application to be totally distributed. The HomeSeer server application runs on a central PC as a service. Client PCs in the home or on the Internet can be used for text-to-speech or standard text notifications. HomeSeer 2.0 also supports ASP.NET, which allows users to easily create their own control interfaces.

New support for extensive macros allows event actions to perform an endless variety of tasks. The management interface is totally web based, so the entire system can be configured using any web browser. HomeSeer 2.0 is backwards compatible with previous versions. Most current add-ons and automation hardware are supported. This includes the new Media Center interface, TouchPad touch screen/ PocketPC interface, web cams, Z-Wave, X10, and more. Additional technologies will be supported too in the upcoming months, including UPB, INSTEON, Lutron and others.

“ This upgrade will enable HomeSeer to be the most reliable and feature rich software package available for home control,†states Richard Tinker, Chief Technology Officer for HomeSeer.

I'm not, but the sooner I can get insteon support the sooner I can get rid of all the x10 addresses in my house. :blink:

I hope Homseer will have a working beta out the end of this month or early Sept.
M McSharry recently posted that Insteon is replacing the originally issues SDK with a revised one. He advises that he hasn't gotten it yet. I suspect that if HST doesn't jump on developing a plugin for it, Michael will. Why else would a talented developer like he spend the $ on the SDK if he was going to sit?
