STI2NR,

Gee, I hate to see you give up!  iHouse will do all those things you mention.  Please re-post your needs and details of your system over at the iHouse forum so you'll have access to help from the entire iHouse community.  I'm sure we can get you up and running!

As far as "tons of options I don't need", iHouse is designed to just let you ignore those things! 

Hope to see you over at the iHouse forum!

I will toy around with it later on as it is free which is awesome.  I just get so confused about tcp ip and all that jazz. 

I got the abel cam up and running with no issues in less than a minute and it has an x10 plugin that can be used on the web server that abelcam sets up.

I will however come back to ihouse when I have more time on my hands as it appears to be great software that other companies are charging upwards of 200 dollars for???

I just wanted to be able to see my cams from my android phone and be able to control them and the abel cam does this.  With the autom8 software on the phone as well it is a second option to control the cameras. 

Thanks for the quick responses!!

pconroy,

All the kudos should go to the developer, TJ Trolinger!  All I do is help a little with the documentation and the forum and try to "spread the word".

But thank you on TJ's behalf!

As I mentioned in another post yesterday, I stopped using AHP a few months ago. After reading up on iHouse I thought I'd give it a try. So far I am very impressed with the macro capabilities and unless the programmers at X10 do a complete re-write of AHP, I don't see any reason to revert back at this point.

So far I have recreated my complete setup within iHouse as well as adding features that we limited in AHP. I like that there is no limit to the number of status flags and they can be given meaningful names. Plus the fact that macros run sequentially, I find their execution to be more reliable since they don't get interrupted.

I'm still learning some parts of it, but to date I am quite pleased and happy that there is a very good alternative to AHP available.

Thanks tjtrolinger.

Hey Puck, welcome to iHouse!  I too am using iHouse for it's greater reliability.  Unlimited flags, Unlimited macros, floorplan, weather, alarm,  server/client voice, video, and so many settings and configuration options that AHP doesn't have make this the software of choice for me.
