AHP SDK or Other Integration methods?
« on: December 12, 2008, 09:35:08 AM »


Hi all,

First time posting.

I have been tasked with integrating "home" automation into our company's main software product.  Nothing special, mostly controlling lights, ceiling fans, etc.  For cameras, we have decided to go another route, unless of course there is a compelling reason to use X10 related products in terms of robustness and development time.

At any rate, I'm wondering what the advantages of using the SDK are as opposed to using a serial based unit and sending commands like that, other than using a higher level ActiveX control.

Thanks,

Lee

it depends on what interface your designing for!
The SDK is for the CM19A and CM15A the serial Port CM11 will not work with it! ;)

Thank you for responding.  After some reading, it looks like the ActiveX object is the best way to go for me.  I want to issue commands and  listen for events from a proxy server that I'm writing.

Thanks again,
