PowerHome 2 Released - UPB, Insteon, X -10 Support with New Quick Start Wizards

Empower Your Home™ with PowerHome™ 2 PowerHome 2 Released With UPB, Insteon and X-10 Support

ORLANDO - With today's introduction of PowerHome2 beta software, seamless integration of competing home automation products is now a reality. The three most popular home automation protocols now can be used as one with PowerHome2.

David Howard, developer of PowerHome said, "My goal has always been to make home automation easy to use and available to everyone. But, there were always competing home automation devices requiring different automation software to run them in the home. Prior to PowerHome2 you were forced to choose between Insteon or UPB devices and hope you chose wisely. With PowerHome2 you can run Insteon, UPB and X -10 devices together, making automation of your home a lot simpler and making the choice of which protocol to use less important."

Further, David Howard said, "I've included a new Quick Setup Wizard making it easier for a new PowerHome user to get the software up and running fast."
