The Starter Green Home Automation Computer

You can automate your entire home with "The Starter" embedded Home Automation Computer.  The embedded HomeSeer HS2 Plus Home Automation Control software can automate your: lighting, thermostat, window shades, irrigation, and telephones. The web server in "The Starter" allows you to access your remote home from an Internet browser from any where in the world.

The Starter will interface with your wireless remotes, touchscreens, PDA's, PocketPC's, cell phones, and microphones.  You can have alerts from sensors in your home sent to you by email, telephone, or text messaging.

The Starter includes a calendar and time based event scheduler, that allows you, for example, to turn on the lights at sunset and turn them off automatically at 10pm. It's great for turning the kids TV's off at bedtime.  It can be controlled by your voice from a room microphone, or your cell phone.

The Starter is fanless and diskless. There are no moving parts so it creates no noise. It is silent. It only uses 10 watts of power, 1/10 of a 100 watt light bulb, so there is very little heat. It can be run inside a locked closet, and hooked to an internet connection, while the rest of your home automation devices are linked to the Starter wirelessly. No need to run wires around your home. If the power fails, The Starter comes with HSSentry that will automatically restart your computer when the power is restored.

HomeSeer HS2 Plus Embedded Home Automation Control Software

This is a starter Home Automation Computer. No other items are included with the computer. We wanted to keep your cost as low as possible. So a lot of the frills, like monitor, keyboard, mouse, and home automation components, that are on our other Refined Automation Home Automation Computers are not offered with "The Starter,"

The best way to communicate with "The Starter" is from another computer on your Home LAN network, or over the Internet. Or you could hook a montor, keyboard and mouse to the computer if you choose. You have a lot of flexibilty.

There is built-in, embedded, home automation control software included, but you will need home automation components for the software to create events and controls around your home. We recommend our Starter Hardware Bundle as a minium hardware solution to get you up and running. The Starter fully supports and will work with all of the Home Automation Components on our web site.
