vCrib v0.0.8.0 Released

VCrib version 0.0.8.0 has been released!  There are a lot of changes in this version.  Most notably, the migration of some of the apps to .NET.  The Bluetooth and Z-Wave apps are now included in the install as well.  All of these .NET apps are included in a zip file that gets installed in the vCrib install directory.  Just extract it to that same directory and you should be good to go.  As always please post on the forum with any bugs/issues you may come across.  You can find the list of changes after the break…

  1. Art Says:

    If vCrib supports X10, Insteon and more, AND I already own both a CM11 and a CM15a THEN why should I need to purchase an Insteon PLC device? - Also, newer computers no longer come with serial ports thus the reason for my purchasing the CM15a (USB).

    Great looking software with all the features a person could want. If I could only get it to run. Seems the ODBC error is keeping me at bay.

    Thanks for your time,
