Exceptional Innovations (EI) recently announced the software launch of Life|ware 1.0.1, a software component that compliments, but is not limited to, the touch panels and system controllers they are producing for home automation. The product integrates with Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 to support MCE-based installations while remaining hardware neutral.
In addition to EI’s Life|touch, the software runs on a Media Center PC, digital entertainment center or Media Center extender. Life|ware uses the cross-platform Web Services for Devices (WSD) standard to communicate between systems. Each of these aspects is intended to make the product flexible and scalable, instead of locking the user into a small set of proprietary options.
Life|ware is available now. EI’s touch panels (Life|touch) are expected in Q3 2006. Pricing varies with installation and scale.
