HomeSeer Unveils New Hybrid HomeTroller Home Automation Controller

HomeSeer Technologies announces its new Series 2 HomeTroller home automation controller. The new unit features a fan-less, diskless ‘hybrid’ design that combines the reliability and simplicity of conventional hardware controllers with the power and flexibility of software-based automation systems. As with the original HomeTroller, the new Series 2 unit is designed to integrate and automate the many systems of a typical home including lighting, appliances, security, climate, irrigation, window covering, and audio/video systems.

HomeTroller is compatible with a wide range of wireless, hard-wired and power line automation technologies and Homeowners and integrators can choose from a dizzying assortment of human interfaces including push-button controllers, touchscreens, wireless remotes, telephones, and even voice! Like all HomeSeer systems, HomeTroller is also web-enabled and may be accessed by any internet-capable device from anywhere in the world.

“We designed the original HomeTroller with four important factors in mind; flexibility, reliability, energy efficiency, and affordability. The new unit is every bit as flexible as the original but offers improved reliability and a lower price.” states Richard Helmke, HomeSeer’s president and founder. “The original HomeTroller was very energy efficient, consuming only about 22 watts of power. With the Series 2 fan-less diskless design, we’ve cut that figure in half!”

HomeTroller is designed to work seamlessly with industry standards and products from leading manufacturers such as Cooper®, Lutron®, Intermatic®, Leviton®, Russound®, Monster Cable®, Microsoft®, NuVo®, Centralite®, DSC®, Aprilaire®, ACT and RCS (to name just a few). Support for the latest automation technologies such as Z-Wave®, and Insteon® is also included.

HomeTroller is slated to begin shipping in July, 2008.

For the past ten years, HomeSeer Technologies has been creating some of the most popular and robust automation systems available. HomeSeer Technologies’ systems have been installed in over 12,000+ residential and commercial sites. HomeSeer has won numerous awards including TechTV’s Best of CES, HomeAutomation top 50, TechLiving’s HOT LIST, and was selected as a central integration component in all episodes of the hit FOX TV show “Renovate My Family”.
