HomeSeer Technologies Releases UPB Plug -in

Bedford, NH - HomeSeer Technologies announces the release of its new plug -in for control of UPB (Universal Powerline Bus) devices. The new plug -in will allow installers and integrators to control all UPB devices directly from the company's best selling HomeSeer v2.0 software and from the upcoming HomeSeer PRO -100 hardware controller.

The new plug -in is designed to download and install into HomeSeer software or into the PRO -100 controller directly from the internet. Unlike other software interfaces for UPB, the HomeSeer UPB plug -in supports fully verified two -way control without the need to poll devices. In addition, the plug -in supports advanced UPB devices like sensors and input/output controllers, UPB links (scenes) with full trigger and condition support and custom control of UPB keypad indicators.

"With our new plug -in, we offer a much greater level of control on more UPB hardware than any other software or hardware controller company" states Richard Helmke, President and founder of HomeSeer Technologies. The new plug -in is compatible with all UPB hardware from manufacturers such as Simply -Automated, PCS and HAI.

The new UPB plug -in is shipping now and is available from HomeSeer authorized dealers and distributors.
