    Start HS4 as a Service??

    Is there an option to start HS4 as a service?
    It seems like it took awhile for HS3 to get the option to start as a service from what I recall. I will probably keep using HS3 until I can get HS4 to start as a service.

    Regards,

    The developers have spiritual reasons against letting HS run as a service. I use FireDaemon to do it. https://nssm.cc/ works too and is free.

        What part is not true?
        The official documentation tells you how to have HomeSeer start via the task scheduler: https://helpdesk.homeseer.com/articl...hs3-on-windows

            Personally I agree with AgentGladstone the link provided is just more unsupported statements like Rupp's recent statement that Edge doesn't work with HS4 due to "built in port blocking". The fact that HST never implemented the simple fix for web pages here https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/ho...ervice-or-task tells me once they've made a decision they are done with it. I'm not running HS4 but I'm guessing the same fix isn't implemented there either.

              I just have my Windows VM auto-login and HS3/4 launches automatically. One of those links with the 2013-era posts has a lot of people getting really upset and demanding refunds over the removal of service mode. I find this a bit strange considering how easy it is to use the Startup folder to launch the software once at the desktop. Are people using this desktop for work and don't want HS on the taskbar?

                And that is not running it as a service. That is starting it automatically after the user logs into windows. Running it as a service would allow it to start when windows starts and not require a user to actually be logged into the system.

                  That’s the point I was trying to make. The HomeSeer team doesn’t believe in running HS as a service. I think it’s silly. I use a third party tool to run it as a service and it’s fine.
