Indigo Touch is an iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch optimized application for remotely controlling lighting, appliances, HVAC, and sprinklers from anywhere. It will automatically connect to the required Indigo v4.1+ home control software, installed in your home, to communicate with INSTEON and X10 compatible hardware. Now you can adjust your home's thermostat, run the sprinkler, and turn off the lights from anywhere in the world!
Although Indigo Touch can immediately connect to our Demo Server so you can see it in action, controlling your home requires that you have installed Indigo v4.1+ home control software on your Mac. The Indigo home control software is NOT FREE, although there is a 30 day free trial available. See MAC REQUIREMENTS below for more details.

The last time this app was updated was FOUR YEARS AGO.
Come on. Their home automation software for the Mac is…. ok. Nothing special, certainly nothing great compared to the Windows home automation software, and only SLIGHTLY better than the open source stuff out there… for now. I’m exclusively Mac BTW,. They haven’t updated this iOS app in FOUR YEARS. It’s not the right size for the iPhone 5+ screens, and at the MINIMUM they could have added geolocation to the app that would work with their desktop software. I have to buy another service and do fairly complicated programming to know if I’m home or not? I can write an app that has geolocation features, and is the right size for the newer screens in literally under two hours. To right an app that works with their software it probably wouldn’t take more than 5 days at most since it’s just a layer on top of their web server software. I rarely write reviews, but I will never upgrade my software with this company again. This was state of the art four years ago. Every new home automation device you see that comes out is much, much more up to date, even considering all of the scripting and and advanced features Indigo has. If you’re downloading this app you obviously already have paid for Indigo. Stop the cycle until they actually do something that really innovates.
Indigo just works!
These 5 stars are both for the app and the Indigo server, and probably OS X deserves some of the credit as well. For the first time in 15 years, with Indigo, my X10 reliably works.
I have used x10 for 15 years or so (for pool filter, pool light, hot tub, fountain, xmas lights, space heaters, you name it). At first I used the x10 alarm clock and radio remote UI's, but those have always been hit or miss. A few years ago I started using the smarthome server on xp. Still hit or miss. Got this USB interface amplifier gadget, which helped a little bit but not enough. When the iPod touch came out, I made a little php server on my xp box hooked up to the smarthome api and saved the URL's on my iPod screen as on/off buttons for individual x10 addresses, (maybe an idea for indigo to save the open app click) but obviously still unreliable.
Now, with OS X, Indigo, and this little app, x10 is fast and reliable (and I am one step further from getting weened off from XP...)
Excellent little app
Indigo on the mac lets me have lots of lamps in all sorts of awkward corners of the house, that would be a pain to turn on and off one by one - and makes it easy to set them at different levels of brightness, in different combinations, depending on the time of day or situation. (For example, a hallway movement sensor will light a dark corridor at light - but only at 10% if it's after midnight, so it's not blinding.)
With this, we can use the phone or iPad to override whatever the automatic settings are; so it's like a remote that's always to hand. I've used it for years, and it still feels magical. (And thankfully easy to use!)
