Home control server with X10 and INSTEON integration.

Overview

Indigo is an intelligent home automation server for Mac OS X that integrates an assortment of hardware modules to provide complex automation and control of your home in one easy to use environment. Home automation is more than just another way to directly control your environment. You can save money, conserve water, help secure your home and reduce electrical usage by automating your home with Indigo's unlimited scheduling and control logic.

Indigo provides its own internal Web server (no cloud reliance here!) that gives you remote access to control your house from anywhere via Web browser. Also available is Indigo Touch, our iOS application, for native iPhone and iPad remote control. Indigo is the complete solution for your home automation needs with unparalleled ease of use.

Indigo provides you with the tools to create, manage, automate, and control your home:

  • Incorporate motion detectors to turn on lights or other devices
  • Automatically send emails based on events, like leaving your garage door open or when motion is detected after dark
  • Automatically turn on landscape or holiday lighting at sunset and off at sunrise or some other preset time or duration
  • Create complex conditions using an easy and intuitive rule builder - no need to water the yard if it's raining outside
  • Create different lighting scenes, for example "Party," "Movie," "Sleeping," "Away," for perfect multi-room lighting at the touch of a button
  • Control your whole-house audio via iTunes or your home theater system - pause the movie if your doorbell rings
  • Save money and energy by automating your thermostat usage - change set points based on occupation
  • Incredible flexibility for thousands of other uses -- use your imagination!

It works just like the marketing material says, its a great app, and it has excellent support. It's run here 24 x 7 for the last 5 years. There are not many programs that I'll pay this much for, but this is one of them.

Indigo is simply the best home automation software you can get. Not only does it support several protocols (I use Z-Wave) but you can also enhance it with Python in every way you wish. GUI is 'simple' but great and support for new devices is good.

Amazing software! Online forum is great help in controlling complex systems. Adding new features regularly. Potential is phenomenal and allows integration of new Insteon modules and old X-10 modules side by side. I recently converted and am still coming up to speed, but impressed. Free iPhone app allows remote monitoring system.

The program is old code that also supports the PPC Macs. It will not run on the new Mac OS Lion. It also lacks iPad/iPhone/iPod support. In my view, this program has become too old and too high in cost to justify.

I am not sure what you mean by "old code that supports PPC Macs." Indigo 5 is a Universal Binary that is optimized to run on both Intel and PPC Macs natively. It does NOT require Rosetta. Additionally, both Indigo 5 beta 7 and Indigo 4.1.17 are Lion compatible. They were both released BEFORE Lion became available today. So, both the newest Indigo 5 beta and Indigo 4 can run on all newest Macs and the latest Mac OS X operating system. What specifically are you having problems with?

You don't know what you're talking about - they posted Lion compatible updates to both Indigo 4 and Indigo 5. They've also had a native iPhone/iPad/iPod touch app (Indigo Touch) for years. Do your research mister "Business consultant" before posting useless drivel like this.

Seems ripe for a completely re-written iPad app. That's the future, baby.

When's the UI going to move away from brushed metal? It's looking pretty dated.

Disregard it appears the photo above is an old one from the brushed metal days. I saw a more Leopard appropriate UI on one of the Mac Automation sites. Phew. Indigo is too cool to be looking like 2004 tech.
