X-10 Scripting Addition 1.2 Description:
Would you rather wake up to gentle background music from your stereo and the smell of fresh brewed coffee? Ever wish your computer could turn on the printer when you want to print a file and then turn it back off when it was finished? Would you like your house to look lived in when you're away on vacation? Ever wanted to just say "Stereo On" and have your stereo turn on? Now you can do all of this and more from your Macintosh using AppleScript! This shareware package provides a collection of scripting commands that let you control appliances, lights, etc. from AppleScript using a very inexpensive CP290 interface and X-10 modules that are available at many electronics stores or via mail order. If you're new to home automation or AppleScript, the detailed manual provides lots of background information, examples, mail order companies for the interface and modules, contacts for home automation magazines, etc. For less than $60 and very little effort you can get started in home automation.
