Active Home Vista for Android is a client that works closely together with the Active Home Vista server solution that runs on PC (supported: CM10A, CM11A, CM17A, CP10). Active Home Vista for Android brings the functionality of Active Home Vista to your phone so you can take it anywhere.

Note that in order to connect to the Active Home Vista server on your PC from the WAN you'll have to forward TCP port 10101 on your router (if you have one) to your PC.

Active Home Vista is the "control center" of your home automation system. You can control all your devices, program the X10 interface and receive updates from the X10 interface to see what´s going on X10-wise. Dusk & dawn timers are supported. The limited EEPROM of the interface is used in an efficient way to store as many timers & macros as possible. Also DST support is present. For a number of X10 devices a program wizard is available.

The program supports text to speech & speech recognition. Besides that it´s possible to use the program within your own scripts using a simple command line interface.
