This has been started as an open-source project. Anyone is welcome to pull the source down and use it at anytime or to contribute your own features. Here’s the repo: https://github.com/rscott78/InControl-Web
Once finished, we’ll include this as an official release.saa125 supported this idea ·
As the Pi’s get more powerful, and the Windows OS embedded features get fuller, we’ll look into this again.saa125 commented
I'm going to have to agree with everyone else on this one. I recently installed InControl on an old pc and plugged it into a Kill-a-Watt meter and found that the system was pulling about 115 watts at steady state. Leaving that on 24/7 is a no go for me. Having the ability to add InControl to a low power consumption device (<10 watts) would allow for 24/7 operation with minimal outflow of funds to the local utility. As far as a price point, with the Raspberry Pi device and a Pro license, $100 to $150 sounds reasonable.

I would even be fine with being able to choose from a group of default icons existing in the system. Either way, being able to distinguish between a light switch and a relay or a fireplace or a fan would allow for a quick glance at the screen to know what device you are about to interact with.
