  • How to Automate Your Home (The Basics)

    Want to automate your Home with HomeSeer? Here are your basic system requirements:

    Step 1: Select your HomeSeer System
    We offer both software-based and hardware-based control systems. Each offers its own unique strengths. Our software-based systems are designed to run on existing customer PCs and are generally the most economical options. Our hardware-based systems feature embedded software and are designed for enhanced reliability. We offer seven (7) different options to suit just about any need or budget. Click here for a complete side-by-side comparison.

    Software: HS2
    HS2 is our most economical software and is sold "ala carte"; you purchase only what your need. The program includes built-in support for Z-Wave, X10 and (basic) Insteon control. Support for additional protocols such as UPB, Insteon (advanced), PLC-BUS and 100+ other technologies is available for an added cost. Remote internet access, voice control and text to speech functions are also standard with HS2.

    User interface: Since the program is a web application, the standard (configuration) interface is a plain and simple web GUI. Our HSTouch interface design tool (for Windows, Apple and Android devices) s available for an added cost.

    Recommended user: Home automation hobbyists/enthusiasts of all levels.

    Software: HSPRO
    HSPRO is our most advanced software and is sold with all HomeSeer branded plug-ins and add-ons as "pre-licensed" (free!). The program includes built-in support for Z-Wave, X10, UPB, (basic) Insteon, iTunes, Windows Media Player, Global Cache, WGL, Powersave, Square Connect and much more. As with HS2, 3rd party plug-ins are also available at an added cost. Remote internet access, voice control and text to speech functions are also standard with HSPRO.

    User interface: As with HS2, the standard (configuration) interface is a plain and simple web GUI. However, the full (unlimited) version of HSTouch is also included. With HSTouch, users can create fully customizable screens (projects) for any HSTouch client device including Windows, Windows CE, Linux, Apple and Android devices).
