  • Home Control Assistant (HCA) is a Windows based home automation program that works with a variety of automation interfaces to control lights, appliances, irrigation, and more. With HCA's Programming, Scheduling, Checkbox control, and Power Track, you can easily save money, reduce electrical usage, conserve water and improve safety by automating your home.

    HCA can be installed in a home with existing automation hardware. HCA includes a powerful Designer that makes it simple to add existing automation gear. A new automation solution is easy to create using the Designer or the built-in Wizards for creating a new file, adding devices, creating new schedules, and new programs.
