Essential Info

Take remote home monitoring to entirely new levels with PowerLinc IP. This compact module that allows you to remotely control, monitor or receive messages from home automation devices via SmarthomeLive™ without the need to keep a PC on at the monitoring site. Plus, with its simplified set-up and ability to work behind a firewall, PowerLinc is by far the easiest way to get started with remote monitoring of your home from anywhere in the world you can access the Web.

Eliminates the Need for a PC at the Monitoring Site
The PowerLinc IP is the fastest and easiest way to connect to the award-winning SmarthomeLive remote home monitoring system, which allows you to control your electronics from anywhere in the world you can access the Web. Previously, to run SmarthomeLive, you needed to keep a computer running at the home — impractical on vacation homes or for use when on a long vacation. But PowerLinc IP acts as an alternative to using a personal computer.

Plug-and-Play Connection — No Firewall Configuration Required
Because of its ability to work behind firewalls, PowerLinc IP set-up is incredibly simplified. Because there's no configuring of the firewall, PowerLinc IP makes installation of SmarthomeLive incredibly easy for new adopters who don't want to spend hours configuring a firewall. With PowerLinc IP, getting started is simply a matter of following eight easy steps.

Incredibly Reliable — Virtually Impossible to Crash
Another plus for consumers is the system's reliability. The PowerLinc IP's primary focus is to relay X10 signals. Unlike a PC, it's not running Windows and 16 other programs in the background. This makes the PowerLinc IP one of the most reliable ways to control your home electronics remotely.

About SmarthomeLive
SmarthomeLive can be programmed to send an e-mail, page or text message when motion is detected in selected areas, including the front door and poolside. Additional applications include confirming the house lights are turned off after leaving the home, turning on the thermostat, and setting TiVo™ to record a TV program.

This is an ideal gadget for developers, but the developer documentation is incomplete. If the documentation was more complete, I and other developers could write apps for this unit, and I believe that it has the potential to become the defacto controller for most X10 installs.
