HomeGuru app receives support for ISY controllers


The iPhone/iPad application HomeGuru by zenwheel has just received a major update to version 2.0. The new version adds support for Universal Devices’ ISY99i series of controllers.

If you have a SmartLinc INSTEON controller from SmartLabs, HomeGuru is the perfect way to control your home’s lights and appliances. It allows you to view a list of all configured scenes in your house, view their status and control them by sending on, off or fade commands to them. It is much quicker and friendlier than using the web interface to the device, especially if you use authentication. HomeGuru supports all the devices the SmartLinc knows about automatically, no further configuration is necessary.

What’s new

Version 2.0 is much improved with a new, faster to navigate user interface with all common controls on one screen. It also adds support for the Universal Device’s ISY series of INSTEON controllers in addition to the SmartLinc. This version supports thermostats (yes, plural), direct-dimming, retina display and an interface enhanced for iPad.
