Hello there, fellow home automation enthusiast!

I tried in vain in the past to get x10d to work, so I went hunting for
something else.  I found 'heyu', and downloaded the beta version 2 a
while back (heyu2).  I works fairly well.

As an aside, I have been using Homeseer (on windoze) for a long time,
and have searched high and low for something on FreeBSD that would even
come close.  The problem with heyu2 is that it only sends commands... it
doesn't listen for signals from my remotes and such.  For that, I used
an app called 'xtend'.  I was able to configure macros that I could
trigger with a remote... xtend would receive the signal from the remote
and then kick off a job for heyu2.  A kludge, for sure...

An integrated tool that could speak and listen would be yummy, but I
know even less than you about C.  I have actually been thinking about
schooling myself in C just for this task.

If you would like any guidance on getting heyu2 set up, give me a shout
and I will dig up my notes (I have reverted back to Homeseer for now).

perl -e 'print unpack("u","88V]N=3D&%C=3D\"!I;F9O(&EN(&AE861E<G,*");'
