OSX Users Input

Postby Dominic » Mon Mar 22, 2010 10:26 am

Hi all. Looking for some input. I've been reading through a lot of threads about multiple zwave products. I've been reading a lot about the Vera box, which seems good as a stand alone device, but has no iPhone native app yet. But there are alot of posts in their forums reguarding support, almost like its treated like a beta product still. I was kinda leaning towards it, but that makes me a little leary of spending $300 for the box.

I currently have a MacMini (latest release) that I'm using as a server in my home. It resides in the kitchen. We use it to store all our photos, iTunes music, movies that my daughter likes to watch, and surf the internet. Its in a very convient place. Its always on too, so it would be an ideal device to use as a zwave server.

So, those that use the ThinkStick with OSX, how well does it work and what Windows OS are you running? I have VMWare Fusion, that I use for multiple OSes(Windows/Linux). I guessing that since Windows would need to be running in the background all the time, I would want a very minimal windows install, no other services running.

Thanks,
Dominic

I have not tried this myself but I would guess you want to run a very minimal Windows install and use VMware Fusion it should work fine.

I have tried to get the Native OSX support from the Wayne Dalton app but they refuse to support my iPhone app in their software unless they make money.

See this thread...
