How It Works...


HAL software taps the power of your existing PC or a Home Server to control your home. Once HAL is installed on your PC, it can send commands all over your house using the existing highway of electrical wires inside your home’s walls. No new wires means HAL is easy and inexpensive to install. HAL’s voice interface makes HAL easy to use. The user may pick up any phone in the home, press the # key, and then tell HAL to dim the dining room lights or close the garage door. It’s a two-way conversation, with HAL confirming that it has, indeed, performed the requested action. HAL’s HomeNet™ web interface offers control from every pc in the world with an internet connection. There's even an Instant Message interface so you can control your home using popular Instant Messaging capabilities and even receive notifications of various events.
