HomeLogic was still a “little guy” when it came out with possibly the first embedded app for the iPhone. To demonstrate the capabilities of the then-new mobile platform, HomeLogic set up a system in its own corporate headquarters that enables consumers to log in and mess with a variety of subsystems — not security, of course.
Sand Hill Engineering and Perceptive Automation have quietly been making Mac-based automation software for many years, and Perceptive’s Indigo has a particularly large following among Apple fanboys.

The company’s proprietors are active in online discussions as well.
