HomeSeer is tapping into the cloud for its latest home automation offering. The company is about to launch myHomeSeer, a new cloud-based service designed to simplify remote access of HomeSeer’s HomeTroller line of controllers.
Even better, that access is totally free—for single-system users. Anyone with up to five systems can opt for a paid version of myHomeSeer for $24 per year. There’s even an OEM version available.
The hook on myHomeSeer is that the system can make connection adjustments based on the user’s location. For instance, when you’re at home, the service can provide a direct connection for the best performance possible. When you’re away, the service shifts to a cloud-based connection for access from anywhere in the world.
HomeSeer products work with all sorts of Z-Wave devices from a variety of manufacturers, including Cooper, Schlage, Kwikset, Baldwin, Yale, GE, Honeywell, Leviton, Linear, Everspring, Evolve, Fibaro, FortrezZ, Aeon Labs, RCS, and many more.
HomeSeer will launch myHomeSeer on May 1. Current HomeSeer users with HS3-based systems can sign up for a trial by registering on the company’s website.
