I've been looking at Homeseer now, thank you. There are a few things that perplex me.pete_c said:I am testing the new Homeseer on Linux; both lite and heavy versions.
There are all-in-one boxes, controlled by browser, it looks like. You have to go to Homeseer's site to initially set up the connection from your own computer to the Homeseer device. How much of the data has to go through Homeseer after that? Can you access your own devices from home without going through Homeseer's servers? Can you access your own devices remotely without going through Homeseer's servers?
Everything they offer clams to be linux compatible through their software client. Then I go look at the software and it says, "Requirements: PC running Windows 2K, XP, Vista, 7, 8." and the setup manual says things like "Internet Explorer 6 is the only supported web browser at this time, and this is used as the user interface." So...how do you use linux with Homeseer, then?
(Their online documentation, when searched for linux, turns up a lot of hits but they're all 404.)
