You would think we should all be walking into our automated homes and speaking “lights-on” and “TV-on” commands by now. We feel the time has come where the HALX home automation Team has made significant progress over the last few years in the development of a mass market Ethernet based universal remote control for a ever expanding range of IR & RF protocols.

Home automation ranges from controlling lights, security systems, cameras, window blinds and irrigation to streaming audio/video throughout a house. The best way to describe home automation is through examples, and there will be step by step examples posted on the blog and forum on how you can make HALX do all kinds of tricks.
