mControl v1.60 (Home Edition)

mControl is a Windows software package that allows for total home control from your Home Theatre PC or any other display unit with a browser. Routine operations that follow a pattern or preference can be scheduled to occur without having to manually adjust or trigger them - offering convenience and savings.

mControl can automate devices including lights & appliances, gas fireplaces, sprinkler systems, HVAC systems, security cameras, IR devices spa pumps. mControl has been designed with a stylish Windows Media Centre interface and also operates on Windows 2000, XP Home and XP Pro. You can also control the software via a browser over your home network.

mControl will need X10 hardware to operate lights and appliances. It interfaces directly with the X10 Programmable Computer Interface (CM12) which it uses to control other X10 Modules, such as Lamp and Appliance Modules.

Key Features

  • It's easy to use. mControl is designed as a Media Centre application so that it can be operated with a remote control.
  • It's convenient. mControl not only runs on Microsoft Windows XP Media Centre 2005 but it can also be accessed using a browser over the internet
  • It's easy on your wallet. mControl has been designed to work with off-the-shelf components so that no expensive and/or complicated back-end equipment is required.
  • It's flexible. mControl supports both the INSTEON and X10 protocols allowing both systems to be used as your systems evolves. mControl's unique architecture also provides the ability to place the home automation adapters on your PC of choice so that you keep any clutter around the Living Room PC to a minimum.
  • It's expandable. mControl can be used to control a couple of switches/devices or it can be expanded to control every switch and outlet both inside and outside of a home.
