iPhone for HomeSeer: a slick iPhone-oriented system based on Rover

Tom Pepper has created a new interface to HomeSeer designed for the iPhone, based on a modified Rover. iPhone for HomeSeer takes advantage of the fact that an iPhone's browser is fairly current, and its connection is fairly strong, to produce an interface that is smart, sexy, easy to use, and similar to the iPhone's other screens, while carrying the full functionality of Rover.

You might like how it looks and works even in browsers other than the iPhone itself, so give it a try! (Though it does use slightly more complicated HTML so older browsers that Rover can handle might not know what to do with it, and it will use slightly more bandwidth than Rover in case you're counting every byte. But while Rover excels at working with very little, most of us have some performance to spare, and iPhone for HomeSeer isn't really using that much more.)

Check it out!

I have looked at the links for the iphone.asp software (End of the trail posted here), but the download site seems to be down. Any suggestions on how to contact the guy that wrote it? My email - (Remove dashes.)

It looks up to me. Sorry, I don't have any better contact info than this.

Apparently it was fixed, but it's down again.
