What are people using to create floorplans? The inexpensive home design software is PC only and I don't want to shell out for AutoCAD or something like that.

I am just using Photoshop. Take a measurement w/ a tape measure, draw a white line in PS, 2 inches for every one foot, then shrink it down.

I have to say though, that the IRTrans is the coolest add-on so far!

I used Visio on my PC too. I looked for a long time for floorplan software for OSX but never really found anything I liked.

I used a scanned-in blue print, which was then cleaned up in Macromedia Fireworks. I also used Fireworks for designing all the graphics/icons in Indigo, including some of the control page icons. Others were contributed by beta testers.

- With iTunes 6, you could not script the speaker selection. I have not tried it yet with iTunes 7, but they have changed the interface so it may be possible.
- Yes, I control all of my home theater set-up with iRed/IRTrans Ethernet and it works FLAWLESSLY.
- I am trying to figure out SecuritySpy integration as we speak.

Should be pretty easy to do SecuritySpy, just put both the SecuritySpy page and the Indigo page in a frameset or iframes.

The good folks at Google released a new product recently. Google SketchUp is available for MacOS X (and Windoze for completeness). I ran through the Win version to get a sense of "look and feel" and it's really simple. Plus it tells you everything -- when you're at a midpoint, whether you're on x or y axis (they call them "blue" and "green"), if you're line is straight or your freehand rectangle is a square -- and can export to JPEG, PNG, TIFF, and DWG/DXF amongst others.

Naturally, it's free for individuals to use as it's from Google. They have a "Pro" version that companies can buy for $495.

Looks like I've got my software. I can save the CAD bucks for a new Mac Mini.

The Nokia 770 is a terrific device to use for the Control Pages.

You can also control other things with the N770, like SlimServer.

Control Indigo from anywhere in the world:

What is the name of the font that you've used for "Home Control" and "Main Bottom View" etc on your control page example and where did you get it?

Cheers,
