HomeSeer Priority Support
Questions posted here are addressed as quickly as possible. We are striving to post a response within one hour, during normal business hours. We will do our best to answer questions after hours and on weekends. Response times will vary during these time.
1) The current help desk handles pre-sales questions, order issues, product returns, licensing issues, and free 30 day support (30 day free support starts after you purchase a product from us).
2) The priority support forum is available here, on the HomeSeer message board (the Open Issues Forum here). Access to the forum will be available via monthly, semi-annual and annual subscriptions. You can create a subscription from your User Control Panel on this message board. Subscription rates will be as follows:
a. Monthly - $20
b. Semi-Annual - $50
c. Annual - $75
What is not changed:
1) Regular message board support and access will remain unchanged. If you have a question, please feel free to post your question in one of our other forums.
2) Software updates will continue to be free and are not affected by our support subscription plans.
How subscription support will work:
Subscribers will have unlimited access to priority support forums for the duration of their subscription. Issues will be posted in unique threads and will be addressed individually by HomeSeer staff, much like helpdesk tickets are currently addressed. Threads with resolved issues will be closed and moved to a ‘Resolved’ forum.
Subscription support will be limited to HomeSeer branded products only. Third-party products will continue to be supported by the author or manufacturer as usual.
