09/30/2014-Thecus, the networked storage expert, announces the availability of free 3rd party software modules for Thecus NAS products, allowing Thecus NAS to also function as home automation servers.
Beyond Network Storage
The home automation modules developed in the Thecus community continue to extend Thecus NAS functionality beyond networked storage. With third party modules, users can configure their Thecus NAS to stream media, host websites, showcase photo galleries, and now even control their home.
As the 21st century progresses, the concept of an intelligent, energy-saving home is no longer a far off fantasy but entirely possible with the technology we have today. Intelligent climate control, appliances that monitor and work themselves, curtains that close and open depending on sunlight, and gardens that water themselves are just a few of the benefits that home automation can provide. Using smart appliances and a Thecus NAS with home automation modules like Domoticz, Homegenie or MisterHouse, homeowners can network intelligent appliances and sensors into an automated home system.
Thecus continues to excel in network storage and third party modules that extend NAS capabilities even more. Home automation is just one of the numerous capabilities of Thecus NAS made possible by free add-on software available in the Thecus Forum and App Center.
