Alternative to Active Home Pro-Active Home Vista
« on: February 22, 2018, 04:01:38 AM »

I'm sure it's been discussed here before but just to remind x10 users that Active Home Vista is available to use as an alternative to AHP. It's probably ideal for Windows users familiar with the Windows environment. It allows the x10 users to control their devices locally at home and remotely when they are away from the home. It includes an Android app too and it's under constant development. Probably the most appealing part is it's free to use. Here's the link to the download.

And, it's very simple to install.

It should appeal to AHP/Wndows users and it has a similar look and feel. I set it up for someone recently and it's a very capable application. I like the way it deals directly with your x10 devices remotely away from home without the need for a "middleman". The Android app should appeal to most too.

Hi all, does this download to CM15A for automation without computer running or is it a very different thing?

No one has ever cracked the ability to upload timers/macros to the CM15

Remote control is cool,

but automation rules!
