The ActiveHome Pro SDK is Here!
It's Time to Unleash the True Power of the ActiveHome Pro Computer Interface!
Are you tired of writing programs that are limited by what you see on your computer's screen? How would you like to take control of your home with a custom appliation of your own design. Or, how would you like to control your PC by remote? Well, now you can.
What This Means To You
Your computer can now do things you would have never thought possible. Turning lights or appliances on and off around the house is really just the beginning.
Imagine being able to create programs such as these with little effort:
Create a virtual remote control with buttons to control every light in your home.
Give your wireless PDA the ability to control your home from anywhere.
Create a program that sends you an email notification when the kids arrive home from school.
Use any X10 wireless remote to control your applications such as your own media player or PowerPoint slide show controller.
Why Else Would You Want the ActiveHome SDK?
Are you looking to integrate X10 home automation with other devices like surveillance cameras, touchscreen controllers, PDAs, various sensors for temperature, light or humidity, security systems. HVAC units, whole-house fans or thermostats? Here's your chance!
Do you want more control or flexibility than ActiveHome Pro provides? You can create your own app to control X10 modules via the Web, by e-Mail, by cell phone, with touchscreen controllers, or add conditional programming to your macros.
Want to use an X10 remote to control non-X10 devices or software such as Windows Media Player, iTunes, PowerPoint, and others? Now you can!
Is home automation, electronics or computer programming a hobby of yours? Maybe you enjoy all three. Do you like to experiment? The SDK is for you!
Would you like to create a custom interface to your home control or maybe a custom home theater application?
Are you in business to develop new product ideas or custom control solutions that you can profit from?
