    Thank you for your support



  • Upgraded 2 days ago, works like a charm!!
    still the best controller out there, and keeps getting better!!



  • Did a fresh install after removing Alpha1 and works great!!!



  • Hi!,

    Using the alpha2 release from the start, and it is a really great piece of software!!
    Still very happy with it!

    Question, when will it go to beta state or maybe a final release?
    Hopefully the community will grow once it is out of alpha release.

    Keep up the great work!!

    Tag,



  • Hi, after looking at the MyController.org contribution to the MySensors controller comparison I had a doubt about the impressive list of controller features and level of MySensors support.
    After a few hours playing I had to adjust my opinion. This is impressive!

    The learning curve is a little steep so I need some more time.. and share my observations.

    Congrats.
