As the Pi’s get more powerful, and the Windows OS embedded features get fuller, we’ll look into this again.John Harris commented
I currently have a Raspberry Pi2 running z_Command Server with AEON Labs GEN2 USB Controller and it is very, very stable and just runs without a hitch using 5V supply and if the power goes out and it all just comes up again with out a hitch. Performance could be better on the browser but manipulating the devices is snappy. I drive my Home Theatre and HA with it. Older apple IOS versions of safari does not support the browser functionality - have to use Chrome (yuck).
The client UI is browser based and very limited although accessible via any device which has authority to access my local network which I like from a security standpoint.
While I have purchased InControlHA-PRO which has a much better UI and supports native mobile devices via its supported APPs - I am using it with AEON Labs GEN5 USB Controller must say that I am finding that the stability is questionable and routinely the software cannot access the UZB Controller.
Documentation is spotty and being a geek it is not technical enough as to what the dependencies are (Windows Services , what is being transmitted to/from the internet side of things via the mobile devices, ports, HA Server etc.
I have a static internet IP address and would prefer to not use a third party server access methods but be allowed to define my own.
No option to un-configure access to the cloud apart from having to delete the DB - OUCH
l am also looking at the HomeSeer system now.John Harris commented
Windows support on Raspberry Pi 2 would be greatJohn Harris supported this idea ·
