Welcome to my
"HCS II compatible"
modules page
 
On this page you will find a series of modules I designed to be interfaced with Circuit Cellar's Home Control System II (HCS II).  Please visit the Circuit Cellar INK site for information related to this home automation system as well as specifications of each module currently available from Circuit Cellar.

Keeping up with Steve Ciarcia's spirit, the designs and firmware found on this site are made available free of charge for non commercial use.

If you click on the module name you will see its technical specifications as well as hardware kit content and price.  Partial hardware kits will be made available for users who do not have the hardware programming capabilities.  Under each module name will be listed the information available such as the module's technical manual in Acrobat PDF format, a zipped file that contains the HEX object file used by the module's PIC microcontroller as well as an XPRESS code snippet that can guide you in the integration of that new module in the HCS network.
