Indigo 4.1.0 Home Automation Server Gets Released

indigoPerceptive Automation today announced release of the new version of company’s home automation software Indigo 4.1.0.

The new version adds support for PowerLinc Modem (2412U/2412S, aka PLM) in addition to PowerLinc Controller (2414U, aka PLC). The PLM includes the ability to use extended INSTEON commands which can be used to control advanced functionality of newer INSTEON products. The PLM syncs INSTEON links significantly faster than the PLC.

The new PRO version of the software also provides a way to create complex conditionals through embedded AppleScript.

See the long list of General Improvements after the break.

General Improvements:

  • Added support for the INSTEON In-LineLinc Relay with Sense feature.
  • Added support for INSTEON KeypadLinc Dimmer (new firmware version), KeypadLinc Timer, INSTEON SwitchLinc Relay (new firmware version).
  • Added support for SwitchLinc V2 Relay type ID number 537.
  • Added new Control Page option, Hide Tab Bar at bottom of Indigo Touch when shown, to the Control Page Editor dialog. This option is only functional with upcoming release of Indigo Touch v1.5.
  • Added option to send anonymous system information (ex: OS version, number of devices used) when checking for new versions.
  • Improved automatic reconnection of serial based interfaces.
  • Improved INSTEON link syncing performance.

  • Fixed CM15 (firmware 2 only) incompatibility that caused incoming X10 RF commands to be dropped in some cases and duplicated in others.
  • Fixed bug that would sometimes cause INSTEON links to be deleted after a sync failure.
  • Fixed bug that caused bogus error message when an already existing INSTEON link is re-added to the PowerLinc 2412U.
