Indigo is a home control server that integrates X10 hardware devices. Indigo was developed from the ground up to be a robust, Mac OS X-native, home control server.

With Indigo you can automate your lights, appliances, sprinkler system, and more! Now you can "warm up the hot tub" before you even leave the office.
You can even control Indigo via email from your cellphone or the office.

Here are some key features of "Indigo":
Remotely control lights, fans, appliances, sprinkler systems, etc., from a variety of handheld remote controls (including the X10 “Entertainment Anywhere” remote control!)
Remotely control any appliance or light, even your hot tub, from your mobile phone by sending Indigo an email, by using a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone and Salling Clicker, or by using the intuitive Ovolab Phlink support.
Remotely control iTunes and dozens of other applications
Create unlimited sprinkler schedules
Incorporate motion detectors to turn on lights or other devices
Automatically send emails based on events, like power failure or motion detection
Automatically turn on landscape or holiday lighting at sunset and off at sunrise
Create different lighting scenes, for example “Party,” “Movie,” “Sleeping,” “Away,” for perfect multi-room lighting levels at the touch of a button
Incredible flexibility for thousands of other uses -- use your imagination!

30 days trial.
