    INSTEON and X-10
    Both standards are supported and Thinking Home is smart about making them work together well. For example, an INSTEON device can have an X-10 alias and both addresses will be available.

    Schedules are made up of Events and Responders. An event performs actions at a scheduled time and a responder performs its actions in response to something, such as a motion sensor. Events and responders can operate gadgets, open web pages, run scripts, play audio, make spoken announcements and send email and instant messages.

    Desktop Remote

    Web Access
    It's never been so simple. Using Apple's built-in Personal Web Sharing, Thinking Home's web access feature is a checkbox away.

    Review of 1405b

    This product is not properly and fully described on the web. It would not function with the existing contoller I had. It could not be returned and I threw it away. I had to waste another $80 on Indigo.
