The new interface is designed to allow users to monitor and control their HomeSeer-automated homes through Media Center. The new interface takes full advantage of the improved graphics and animation features supported by Vista.

We expect our users to be very happy with the improvements “.

HomeSeer’s Media Center interface is designed to work with all of HomeSeer’s automation systems to integrate and automate hundreds of products from leading manufacturers such as Cooper Wiring Devices, Lutron, Leviton, Intermatic, Russound, Centralite and DSC (to name just a few). As with other HomeSeer products the new interface is fully compatible with the latest automation technologies such as Z-Wave® and Insteon®.
