There's a new application available on the iPhone App store today called MiCasa. The first release of the app supports the SimpleHomeNet EZSrve and EZBridge controllers. The major advantage of MiCasa is that it does not require a dedicated PC or customized configuration files. It shows you the devices on your Insteon network in a simple list. It is simple, clean, and pretty fast. It even costs less than one switch or outlet!

There is also a free version coming soon that will allow control of a single Insteon device...

Here's the app description:
"MiCasa connects to a home automation gateway and allows for remote control of all switches, outlets, & dimmers on an insteon home network. Once configured with server information, MiCasa automatically configures itself and learns what things are available for it to control. No additional PC setup, expensive customized configurations, or additional software is required! The home automation gateways supported by release version 1.0 are only the SimpleHomeNet EZSrve (EZServe) and EZBridge home automation gateways. Supports most insteon switches, dimmers, and appliance modules with insteon device categories 0x01 & 0x02. MiCasa does not currently support more advanced insteon devices such as Thermostats, I/O controllers, sprinkler controllers, scenes or timers."

More features and controllers to be supported in future releases...
Visit WidgetalMedia dot com for more information.

Enjoy!

hi art,

neat idea. I have a smartlinc controller but I am unable to get it to work.

How should the address be entered in the settings? My smartlinc has a username and password too.
