Default Embedded Automation Releases mControl Add-In for Windows Home Server

Embedded Automation Releases mControl Add-In for Windows Home Server

Surrey, BC – November 5, 2007

Today, in conjunction with the general availability of Microsoft’s Windows Home Server, Embedded Automation is releasing the mControl Add-In for Windows Home Server. Based on mControl v2 (Home Edition), the mControl Add-In provides ‘Digital Home’ control functionality to the Windows Home Server platform including the ability to:
>> Monitor and control home security systems and thermostats
>> View and record IP cameras
>> Monitor and control INSTEON, Z-Wave and other lighting devices
>> Send and respond to IR (remote control) messages

Embedded Automation has tailored the mControl Add-In to work seamlessly with Windows Home Server by:
>> Using the native Windows Home Server Add-In installation management functionality - simply copy the mControl Add-In to the Software Add-Ins share and use the Settings console to manage installation.
>> Adding a Windows Home Server Console tab to provide administrative and diagnostic functionality for the mControl Add-In.
>> Adding mControl as a Windows Home Server web application to provide convenient and secure remote access through a personalized login.

“The mControl Add-In is an exciting example of how Windows Home Server provides a platform for a wide range of solutions for the home,” said Steven VanRoekel, director of Windows Server Solutions at Microsoft. “We are thrilled to work with Embedded Automation to make the benefits of home automation available and affordable to a broad audience.”

“Windows Home Server is already a great platform because it provides a convenient and easy way to protect, centralize and share personal digital media. The mControl Add-in extends the capability of Windows Home Server by allowing users to monitor and control their home – from managing lights to viewing security cameras,” said Ted Singh, Business Development Manager of Embedded Automation. “Users have access to the entire mControl functionality from systems connected with their Windows Home Server, including networked Windows Media Center PCs and remote connections.”

The mControl Add-in for Windows Home Server is available from Embedded Automation’s website and other distributors.
