    Curios as to the HW systems and release dates

    (sorry that I can't spell the word Curious apparently...)

    I know there is (at least):

    Homeworks Interactive
    Homeworks Illumination
    Homeworks QS

    Would be curious if I'm missing any of them and approximate release dates (or at least year) for each. Thanks!

    Thanks!!

    Interesting - that would suggest they are just about due for a new version this or next year. Is there any indication that is happening?

    I would say that HWQS is not likely to be replaced anytime soon. HWQS is based on the modern Lutron software platform that is the basis for Quantum, RA 2, MyRoom and Lutron Designer. It has plenty of horsepower and flexibility as a platform to further develop on.

    That was the big shift back when HWQS was developed. The previous HW (and commercial) systems were based on old software platforms, (like Visual Basic) and as these platforms passed their time for support, they became unwieldy. The current generations of these systems are developed by a large team that work can flexibly work on all the products that are built on that software platform.

    It's pretty well thought-out and the HWQS processor has the processing power of Quantum. My guess is that you will see it develop further.

    Just curious, what would you like it to do that if doesn't do right now?

    It doesn't let me use LEDs without issues and it's not wifi enabled. The second is a nice to have, the first is a must-have. The alternative of ripping out the interactive system and installing 5-10 new switches that don't exist today isn't terribly appealing either but I'm trying to explore each option in detail to see what makes the most sense.

    Are you the homeowner, or a dealer or contractor? Which system do you have now? What kinds of LED lamps are you having issues with?

    Feel free to write me an email off the forum if you need help and/or product.
