 =====Macintosh Home Automation With XTension===== =====Macintosh Home Automation With XTension=====
-{{:​xtensionicon.png |}}XTension has been automating the homes of Macintosh users since 1996! XTension provides more connections to more devices and protocols than any other comparable piece of software. Want to use an inexpensive X10 motion sensor to trigger ZWave lights? Do you want to integrate a kickstarter based sensor you bought into from it’s IFTT page and have it control the Zigbee lamp colors to alert you of a fridge outage? Are you a Maker who wants to experiment with Arduino based sensors or interested in the mySensors.com devices? XTension lets you tie all these different things together in one place. ​+{{:​xtensionicon.png |}}XTension has been automating the homes of Macintosh users since 1996!
