Device & Standard Support

HCA is built from the ground up to put the power to innovate into your hands.

While HCA supports many of the popular automation products right out of the box, more exciting gear becomes available every day and we are there making HCA better every day - 15 versions and going:

Broad Device Support

Home Control Assistant plays well out of the box with Insteon, UPB, IR, Wireless, IP connected devices, thermostats, IP Cameras, weather, and X10. (Built-in support for some types of devices requires HCA Plus).


Generic Interfaces

Interface with any device that talks over a serial, USB, or IP connection with very little fuss or muss.

User Created Devices

Use Home Control Assistant's powerful visual tools to quickly add support for device types not built into HCA out of the box. You can even export and share that implementation with other HCA installs.


HCA Server (HCA Plus Only)

Client Server opens up possibilities of remote access, voice assistants, multi-stations, and the whole cloud.

Voice Support

Home Control Assistant speaks both Amazoneze and Googlian. With a few easy steps, your Amazon Echo or Google Assistant device becomes the hub from which you can command your entire home. Call for a single light, control entire scenes, or trigger an HCA program, all with names you choose.


Google Assistant

Connect HCA to Google Assistant through the Home Control section of the Google Home app.

Amazon Alexa

Just add HCA to Alexa through the Smart Home section of the Amazon Alexa mobile app.

Google Home and Amazon Echo devices

HCA in the Cloud

Want your cloud-based doorbell to trigger HCA to check the time of day or even the weather before deciding how to respond? Synching HCA with popular cloud-based Internet of Things services puts the power to innovate in your hands. Trigger devices, scenes, and HCA programs based on cloud events you configure.


Partner Connections

Connect with devices in the cloud like the Ring doorbell, Nest thermostats, alarm panels, and more.

Monitoring & Trust

To make your home truly "smart," it has to be able to make decisions and anticipate your needs on its own. Still, HCA makes it easy to keep an eye out under the hood and helps you catch and remedy problems before they grow.

Logging

HCA has extensive time based logging of receptions, transmissions, program actions, etc. This is your first stop to see what happened when and to trace down problems in the logic of your home.


Alert Manager

Things go right but sometimes they don’t. HCA transmits to a device and the device doesn’t respond. The Alert Manager finds problems like these and logs them for you to look at later.

Design Checker

Set up a keypad to start a program but forget to link the keypad button? Every time you make a change the HCA design checker looks for these kinds of problems and reports them.


Import / Export

Got a great program that you want to share or looking for some programs created by others? With import/export and the online library you can easily add new function to your design and share what you have built with others.

Checkbox Control


Home Control Assistant adapts to be an automation solution that works for you, regardless of your skill level or needs. The simplest set of tools are configurable with a few checkboxes, to get you started fast. With no programming you can easily configure an auto off for a device that can be different at different times of the day, specify how different devices in the same room interact, or set up devices to respond as you move through your day – at home, away, asleep. Then, over time, tweak and advance your system as your needs and tools become more sophisticated right along with you.
