HomeSeer HomeTroller-Mini is a Cheap Linux Home Automation Gateway

 |  |  |  |  January 7, 2011


I have always wanted to automate my home, mostly because my entire family is lazy. I am apparently the only one capable of walking across the room and tuning off a light. I want to be lazy too. I want to be able to pick up my iPhone and turn off the light upstairs, or be sure the garage is shut before I go to bed without having to walk up stairs to check. The catch is that most home automation gateways are really big and really expensive.

HomeSeer has unveiled a new home automation gateway at CES this week that is tiny and cheap. The device is called the HomeSeer HomeTroller-Mini and it is a tiny little 1GHz Linux gateway that works with just about any brand of home automation hardware out there. The device supports Z-Wave and other protocols.

It will work with modules and hardware from more home automation firms like Cooper, Schlage, Kwikset, Lutron, Leviton, Russound, Microsoft, Centralite, DSC, Aprilaire, ACT, RCS. The HomeTroller-Mini will ship in Q2 2011 for under $300 (USD).
