      I'm curious, what is the name of this new system?

Note that we will continue to support the current HSTouch and Designer. The Designer is a feature that no other system offers.
      What is the long term plan for this new HSTouch? will there ever be a new Designer that works with the new HStouch, and then the old HSTouch and Designer will become deprecated?

        Spud, take a look at http://xamarin.com/

        This allows you to write mobile apps in .NET! (C# only, which is ok). They have recently announced xamarin forms which is a forms package that is portable between all mobile platforms. It has some limitations, but Z-Tool+ uses it and it had everything I needed. (you can still access platform specific UI items if you want) The apps are larger than native due to the runtime it includes but the time saved in creating the app is huge. I guess the only issue for an individual developer is it can be pricey as you need to pay per year. I bet Microsoft buys them at some point.

        As for the new HSTouch, its not going to be a replacment for the current HSTouch, but a new app that does not rely on the designer. It will use the HS JSON interface so it will be fast, have some event creation built in. It is targeted for a user who would expect to manage and control their system with a single app.

        In my last post I also forgot to mention we will be offering IP camera recording soon, a big requested feature.

          thanks, I never worked with it, but xamarin looks very nice.

          If the new HStouch is not a replacement for the old HStouch, I'm worried that fixes and enhancements for the current HSTouch and Designer will come at an even slower pace than now, since you now have one more codebase to support.

            Thanks for all these updates. HS's constant improvements are certainly meeting the right needs for its customers.

            What kind of specs would a hs system with ip cam recording features need? Like how many cams could the zee 2 support? If a zee2 couldn't how about say mini pc(celeron)?
