Essential Info

If you have dedicated Internet access (i.e. cable modem or DSL) and you want to control and monitor your home while you're away, HomeSeer's built-in Web server brings you full control of all your INSTEON, X10 or Z-Wave devices through a password-protected Web page or by e-mail. HomeSeer supports a wide range of hardware, including lamp and appliance modules, programmable wall switches and infrared audio/video devices through such IR interfaces as the Smarthome Design PC/IR Linc. HomeSeer also features powerful event mechanisms, enabling you to create events triggered by X10 commands received, absolute time, sunrise/sunset (with offset) and matched infrared commands. Triggers can also be set with conditions. Smarthome does not accept returns on any opened software.

    Control your INSTEON-compatible lighting devices with your HomeSeer v2.0 software by installing a plug-in that's free of charge to all registered HomeSeer v2.0 users. The new basic plug-in supports all on-off-dim functions. To install, simply run HomeSeer v2.0 and download from the HomeSeer updater. The plug-in includes Smarthome's SDM configuration software.

    Other features include interaction with security systems, which can communicate with HomeSeer through a serial port. The security system can notify HomeSeer about any event that occurs in the system, including sensor status change and alarm events. You can then trigger events based on those responses.


    For temperature control, HomeSeer supports HVAC devices through the use of scripts. Compatible Units include:

    HomeSeer is a software only product that runs continuously on a computer. You will need to purchase the interface hardware separately to send or receive X10 or Z-Wave signals, control IR-based audio and video equipment, or temperature.

    Very powerful. I have been using the scripting Visual Basic to create complex events that are triggered by insteon motion sensors. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a solution that can do anything, but not for novice. Note: software now requires purchase of $50 plugin to have full Insteon support 30 day free trial.
    COREY -- san antonio, TX   1/2/2011
    Documentation could be much better, especially for some of the basic function of the system. Inclusion of a "reference system"or an example deployment or example that includes ways to handle typical deployment issues would be valuable (i.., how and when to set up scenes with multiple cross connections, when using an Insteon group/scene is better that an event and vice versa, etc). Very powerful software, though - it'll be while before I see all it's capable of.

    I used the V1 version of HomeSeer and it ran flawlessly for years. I hvae a new house and am definately going to try V2 out. Really customizable and the speech stuff actually works pretty well. Never found anything better, closest was ECS but it was harder to program
    CJVann -- indianapolis, IN   7/19/2008
    Excellent software that's HIGHLY customizable, and has many plug-ins and user created scripts to add additional features. You can control or monitor your home from any Internet location, over the phone, by remote control, or by email and text messages! Supports many different automation technologies such as Z-wave, X-10, Insteon, and RF, and the phone features are amazing! The HomeSeer voices for text to speech are impressive, and I've used HomeSeer on both XP & Vista without a glitch.
    Mark -- bedford, NH   3/4/2008
    Joebwan - Your comments are incorrect. Our software includes a webserver designed by HomeSeer and does *not* use IIS at all. HS2 and IIS can will run on the same PC using different ports. Mark Colegrove HomeSeer technologies
    Joebwan -- Las Vegas   9/26/2007
    Be warned. It takes over your machine's IIS web server so won't work if you already host a WWW site (for example, you edit www pages with Adobe DreamWeaver and test on your local machine's www server). Of course it doesn't work with Server2003 if it hosts a web site either. Couldn't get it to work on both Vista Ultimate machines (even with beta vista installer they provided). It did work as advertised on a dedicated vanilla XP machine though.
    PIOTR -- middle village, NY   1/16/2007
    Very good software with additional modules i install for free and for some fee.
    PAUL -- west chester, PA   1/9/2007
    The software is great with great web based support. It is working very reliably with Insteon products.
    RICHARD -- nesquehoning, PA   6/3/2006
    Software works very well, even from a remote IP address.
    RUSSELL -- fort collins, CO   5/8/2006
    This software is solid as a rock. Installation is simple. Unfortunate that the Beta version(s) are the only versions that seem to be compatible with plug-ins I want to run.
    Andrew -- chicago, IL   4/20/2006
    Finally! Software that gets me back to the same point I was with my old X10 ActiveHome...
    MARILYN -- salt lake city, UT   3/30/2006
    just what I was looking for!
    KENNETH G -- rockford, IL   2/8/2006
    Excellent
