So what you are trying to find is a program for the 1132CU.
I have only used their software with mine. There are others if memory serves me, but off the top of my head I don't remember what they where.
Have you looked at any other controllers like the X10 CM15A?

I used SMP for about a year and liked the software but it is fairly limited in power.

Although more expensive "Homeseer" automation software will use the 1132CU, or CM15A, or CM11A, or ACT 110, etc as a powerline interface. Homeseer has "plug-ins" which will add features or allow Homeseer to interface with thermostats, security systems, sprinkler systems, etc.

Although it does less, the X10 CM15A with software is about $150 less than Homeseer. It is really good bang for buck.
