Indigo can literally control and automate all processes in your home. HAL 9000 anyone? To be honest Indigo isn't as frightening as the artificial intelligence from 2001: A Space Odyssey. The program can actually become quite useful, if you have the patience to learn how to use it, and like any true geek, dream of controlling every switch in your home from your Mac.
Via the client/server architecture, you can gain remote access to devices in your home like lights, alarms or computers. You'll certainly need to have a good level of knowledge to learn how to establish connection between devices.
From Indigo's interface, it's fairly easy to know what actions to trigger, set launch times and dates and even organize actions by groups. The separate log window also ensures you always have a record of what actions you performed. An added plus: Indigo comes with a widget to control your home from your Dashboard If you have enough technological skills, Indigo can enable you to automate hardware in your home all from the comfort of your Mac.
- Added support for the 1000W INSTEON dual-band SwitchLinc.
- Fixed a crashing bug in the client which would occur when a variable name changed then the Delete or Duplicate buttons were clicked before clicking/tabbing out of the editing field to commit the change.
