XTension home automation

Sand Hill Engineering on Thursday unveiled XTension 6.0, a major update to its home automation software that adds support for a number of new hardware devices, as well as a new web-based interface. XTension now offers connectivity with multiple concurrent powerline and RF interfaces, supporting devices from Oregon Scientific, such as barbeque temperature monitors, atomic clocks, power monitoring, and more. Sand Hill Engineering is selling XTension 6.0 for $150, while a free "lite" version is also available.

In addition to the previously mentioned hardware, XTension now also supports USB-, WiFi-, and Ethernet-based RF receivers and sensors from RFXcom, allowing users to control said equipment from its new X2Web interface. The new interface features a new database and charting package called XTdb, and a new Video Pitcher.
