Product Description

Control lighting, appliances, security, HVAC and home theater from your computer through a single web interface or choose one of many options including touchscreens, wireless remotes, in-wall push-button controllers, or even your telephone or cell phone, thanks to HomeSeer's voice-recognition technology. Install as few or as many as you like to meet your needs. With HomeSeer, your choice is never limited!

The PRO-100 controller is the only unit of its kind to combine the reliability and ease of installation of a hardware-based controller with the power and flexibility of a software-based controller! No other hardware controller offers voice recognition, complete telephone integration, text to speech processing, email functionality and full SSL protected remote access!

Overview

Reliability

The PRO-100 was designed to be the most reliable home controller available. The hardware is free from any moving parts. A small-footprint, embedded, write-protected operating system provides an ultra-reliable software platform.

Web Based Management

The system is managed using any web browser. This allows for easy configuration on or off site. Remote access to the unit offers the ability to remotely manage the unit without making a trip to the site. Easily add/change schedules, or troubleshoot issues.

Mechanical Design

The PRO-100 has a very small footprint (11"wide x 7" deep x 2" high) and can be installed or mounted in a variety of locations. Since the unit is fan-less, it can be mounted inside a structured wiring cabinet or any other type of cabinet.

Customizable Software

The system software is totally customizable, including the user interface. An API (Application Programming Interface Specification) is available that allows for the creation of custom software "plug-ins". These plug-ins allow the software to be extended to support custom hardware. The system also includes a scripting interface that supports the popular scripting languages such as VBScript, JavaScript, and Perl. Scripts are a quick way to add custom functionality such as complex if-then-else logic, or for sending binary or ASCII text to a serial port. The user interface and custom interfaces are built or modified using simple web (HTML) technologies.
