HomeVisionXLHomeVisionXL is a cross-platform tool for developing schedules for the HomeVision integrated home controller. The program can also be used to load the schedule into the HomeVision controller, as well as monitoring and controlling the unit while it is executing the schedule.
The HomeVisionXL project originally started out as an alternative for the existing windows HomeVision software for those users that prefer to run Linux as their operating system. At that time the software went by the name of LinuxHV.
Along the way, some of the original features have been improved and many new features have been added. For details, check out the new features link on the left side of the page. Because of these new and improved features LinuxHV also started to be interesting for HomeVision users that do use some version of MS Windows as their operating system. The fact that LinuxHV was written in Tcl meant that, with a few modifications, it could be made suitable for Windows as well.
Now that the program was no longer Linux specific, the name LinuxHV was causing lots of confusion. Many Windows users were not aware that they too could use this program and basically make life easier. Clearly the program needed a new name. Because of the extended feature set as compared to the original Windows software, I eventually decided on HomeVisionXL, with a big "thank you" to all the people on the HomeVision users mailing list who suggested new names. Eventhough HomeVisionXL was not actually suggested, the choice for the name was definitely inspired by the "HomeVisionLX" proposal.
