Hi,
Is anyone out there taking advantage of the new Macs with intel
processors to run home control and monitoring software? If so what are
you running on your little power house?

I am thinking about getting one to run my house.

Thanks,
Michelle

Re: Mac Mini for home control.


I'm only using a G4 mini, but I'm using Xtension <http://www.shed.com
for home automation (intelligent, scriptable control).
Very satisfied with the software, developer support is immediate, and
discussion & support list is excellent. (I haven't seen a negative
comment in 6+ years!!) Lurk on the list for a while, try the full
featured demo and see what you think.
No affiliation with the developer, just a satisfied user.

I agree that Xtension has a great support network and seems to have
excellent features. There is also another app for Mac home automation
called Indigo (perceptive automation). Decent interface, good support.

Hey guy thank for the responses but I guess I should have been more
clear. I was wondering if anyone was running MS Windows on the Mac Mini
for home control and what they were using for software.

Thanks,
