Software Product Description

Active Home Vista is the control center of your home automation system. You can control all your devices, program the X10 interface and receive updates from the X10 interface to see whats going on X10-wise.

Dusk & dawn timers are supported. The limited EEPROM of the interface is used in an efficient way to store as many timers & macros as possible. Also DST support is present. For a number of X10 devices a program wizard is available.

The program supports text to speech & speech recognition. Besides that its possible to use the program within your own scripts using a simple command line interface. With version 2.0.0 also a web server is integrated, so your X10 devices can be controlled from virtually everywhere.

Since 2.3.0 the support for extended commands (Type 0 and Type 3) has been enhanced. Also supports now the variable ramp of dimming that is part of Type 3 command 1.

Last but not least the program can serve as server for multiple network clients. It also supports clients that run on Android, so you can control and monitor your devices also from your phone, tablet or Google TV. The Android app can be downloaded from Google Play. Since January 2014 also a BlackBerry app is available. This app can be downloaded from the BlackBerry App World.

YouŽll need a computer, a free serial port (or USB) and a X10 interface to do anything useful.

The following interfaces are supported:

  • CM10A / IBM Home director 16 (beta, downloading macros / timers is not supported)
  • CM11A (CM12)
  • CM15A (downloading macros / timers is not supported)
  • CM17A
  • CM19A (select CM15A as interface)
  • CP10 (beta)
  • Universal Devices ISY-99 (select CM15A as interface)
  • XTB-232 (select CM11A as interface and uncheck Automatically adjust time of interface)

In order to use it with the CM15A interface, the ActiveHome Pro SDK is needed (if you donŽt have the ActiveHome Pro software installed).

"Not working with COM1"

Pros:  Installed Active Home Vista 2.5.0. Installation went well, but program is not able to communicate with my CM11 interface, giving the error "Access to your serial port is denied, please close the program blocking your serial port". Computer and CM11 is working fine with Active Home Pro. Changing IRQ4 to IRQ3 is not helping. Any suggestions?

Cons:  None
