    Also I see there is a beta for Echo but little info on it. Would we be able to send commands to HomeSeer?
    The SDK is basically an example plugin. You use it to get a sense of how Devices, Conditions, Triggers, and Actions all work inside HS. The download link is on this page:

Just a word of caution: the plugin development process comes with a fairly steep learning curve. The SDK example application would be a good place to start and see how HS works internally. The good news is that your interface has that library, so it's a matter of merging the two into a plugin application.

    Also how hard is it to write or get Home Seer to write a interface for new hardware for use by HomeSeer HS3? For example I have a Measurement Computing USB digital interface http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acqui...24-Series.aspx
    that would be nice to use with HomeSeer.
    Next to impossible I would say - HST already have a IO interface (ADIO-100) for sale and programming resources are clearly stretched so personally I see it unlikely HST will develop one for you. As rmasonjr says, being as though they have a .net library then it is simplified to develop a plugin to talk to HS but it is a steep curve if you are not a programmer, it would probably take a programmer a day or two but things get difficult if you don't have the hardware to test with.

    I'm considering HomeSeer HS3 software but have purchased other home control software and am concerned about new hardware being supported by HomeSeer.

    I see there is a beta for Echo but little info on it. Would we be able to send commands to HomeSeer?

    Also how hard is it to write or get Home Seer to write a interface for new hardware for use by HomeSeer HS3? For example I have a Measurement Computing USB digital interface http://www.mccdaq.com/usb-data-acqui...24-Series.aspx

    Thanks
Working...
