In addition to these built-in capabilities, you can add on telephone control and other features! HomeVision is a stand-alone automation controller that is initially configured with a PC. It can then be disconnected if desired. HomeVision constantly watches for any events you've specified, then performs whatever actions you've told it to do. Any event can trigger any other event(s). The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
HomeVision-PC has similar hardware interfaces as HomeVision at a lower cost, but requires the PC to be running with additional software.
Finally, HomeVision-Pro integrates all of HomeVision's functions and adds even more, making it our most powerful and popular controller.
