HE853 Control Project


The HE853 Control project is dedicated to create a Windows SDK for the HE853 USB dongle of the Home Easy home automation products since the vendor does not provide one. The SDK consists of GPL licensed tools and a LGPL licensed library that can be used from other applications.

Our target audience are power users and software developers who wish to extend the usage of the HE853 USB dongle beyond the limits of the vendor software.

For more information and the latest packages please refer to the project page: https://sourceforge.net/projects/he853control/
