QW Home Automation is a complete set of home automation solution. Currently it supports Insteon based lighting (dimmers, switches, remotes, lamp modules etc) and thermostats (Venstar).
As of 07/18/2011, QW Home Automation becomes partner of Smartlabs Inc. You can find our logo at http://www.insteon.net/alliance-about.html.
It is a personal hobby project. I have a sizable house and I installed over 40 Insteon based devices around to control the lighting and air conditioning. The existing solutions are either too expensive (some are priced over $1,000) or doesn't provide the user experience I wanted at all.
I have an entire framework I built for automated trading with direct exchange connectivity and internal latency within the far lower end of single digit microseconds (far less than 5 microsecond), with all technologies including C++, .Net and Java. So it is fairly easy for me to build a home automation solution on top of it.
So I decided to build one and share it with people completely free of charge for all personal and non-commercial use..
It seems that there has been several home automation solutions around, what is the advantage of QW Home Automation?
Well, based on information at hand, QW Home Automation is special for the following reasons.
Support software scenes. Support for more devices can be easily added.
Insteon is notorious for its complexity. QW Home Automation provides extremely powerful management tool to help user configure, manage and troubleshoot every device in the home automation network.
