I'm trying out this to have near the front door:
http://store.homeseer.com/store/HomeSeer-WFTT07-WiFi-Tabletop-Touchscreen-with-HSTouch-P1742.aspx

Once I get it working well, I also plan to one to the bedroom.

I was going to use the Evolve LCD desk mount option, but feel a small table is more versatile and actually cheaper.

For those reading Imperihome developer is completely unresponsive.

I'd recommend that you stay away from their product.  Save your money and use a product like AutHomation where the developer is responsive.

Have you tried contacting them directly through their website?
http://www.imperihome.com/contact/

I've had good response contacting them there.

No, I was not very happy that they leave these forum posts responded while forcing users to go 1 by 1 through their support ticket system.  It also hides the number of issues an app has.

Companies that transition to this model tend to have sh#*$y and declining products.

I waste time as the user needing to email when I could find information myself for common issues on a forum they moderate.

Thanks for the heads up.  What do you think of the tabletop tablet otherwise?

Nice, but a little slow.  As SirMilli mentioned, it's a little under powered. 

Also, the touch interface is a little sensitive and selects and item when swiping when it should scroll.

My use is I need a "Dashboard View" for a central mounted tablet.  Grasshopper which is a great remote control doesn't provide a good dashboard view.

Agreed... but I keep hoping he'll get there!

Can you do it with Automation?  I like his new card view.  What are you trying to show in the dashboard?

Is there a brand or spec of tablet that most people are using for wall mounted applications or have we reached that wonderful point where are long as you get a certain spec running kitkat for similar that it does not really matter what you buy ?.

The 7inch yarvik tablet I got for ?50 (new) has done a great job and I'm now thinking about adding a few more tablets around the house to run imperihome on.

From what I can see there are a number of reasonable spec tablets for around ?50 - ?80 which ain't bad for a ten inch home controller ha ha. They might not have the performance that you'd want for your main daily use but as a wall switch they are fine. 

I was  interested to see what others are using before I go ahead and buy the rest, just in case I'm missing something. It's been good to see the wall mounting people have been doing, I've just been using 3m strips which work great.

Yes, AutoHomation has fit the bill so far.  No HTTP API like Imperihome, but without full screen camera and a timeout to return to dashboard, it has little value.

Is there a timeout value in AutHomation to return to some screen, like favorites?
