Bringing the cinema experience home.
Ever wanted to dim the lights when you select Play in Media Center, well now you can. With PowerLink you can automatically trigger Homeseer events depending on what actions you take in MS Media Center.
PowerLink features include.
* Trigger Homeseer events on the following Media Center actions.
Start Media Centre
Stop Media Centre
Navigate Home, Music, Videos.
Play/Stop/Pause Video, Music, DVD, TV
* Trigger Homeseer events at user specific intervals after a media source has started, or before it ends.
For example your home theatre lights will slowly dim on 10 seconds prior to the completion of the film
* Play background music when no Media Center activity is being performed. Background music playing adds any theatrical feel to any movie room
PowerLink enables you to experience that full theatre experience at a fraction of the cost. For example, while my media centre pc is sitting at the home page PowerLink will continually repeat my selected song at my set volume level, allowing music to play softly while I prepare the DVD. Once the DVD movie has started, the background music is lowered to off and the movies begins. 30 seconds into the movie the lights are dimmed to off and the show begins, and all I had to do is load the DVD and press play - PowerLink and Homeseer did the rest.
This plug-in is only compatible with HomeSeer 18.104.22.168 or greater.
Windows XP (MCE 2005)
Homeseer 22.214.171.124 or above
How it works.
Powerlink consist of three individual components.
PowerLink (Event Listener)
The hub is used to share information about your Homeseer events and windows media centre states. The main PowerLink application receives these events via the hub and triggers the appropriate actions.
