Indigo Touch is an iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch optimized App for remotely controlling lighting, appliances, HVAC, ceiling fans, sprinklers, etc., from anywhere in the world. It will automatically connect to the required Indigo Smart Home Hub software (v6 or better), installed in your home on a Mac, to communicate with Z-Wave, INSTEON and/or X10 compatible hardware. Additionally, many more devices and protocols are supported via 3rd Party Plugins. Now you can adjust your home's thermostat, run the sprinkler, open the garage door, unlock the front door, and turn off the lights from anywhere you have an internet/data connection!
Although Indigo Touch can immediately connect to our Demo Server so you can see it in action, controlling your home requires that you have installed the Indigo Smart Home Hub software on your Mac. Indigo is NOT FREE, although there is a 30 day free trial available. See MAC REQUIREMENTS below for more details.

Perfect app and support
I use the app in conjunction with a complex home system with 50 or so switches, a dozen controllers, and 50 or so conditional schedules (evening lights on etc). The initial hardware (17 years ago) was X10 based, but about 50% has now been replaced by Insteon dimmer switches. Indigo perfectly supports this mixed technology allowing me a smooth and inexpensive transition. The app is very simple to use and works extremely well. The technical support team is fantastic. Both in their expertise and the responsiveness. The one thing I would recommend them to add is the Home Pod, Alexa, and Google voice interface for the app. Perhaps initially just HomePod as it is in the same echo system. Special kudos to Matt from the tech team who expertly debugged en error caused by another Mac that ran in the background an old and long forgotten Indigo server.
Do not buy this app or system
Because I have Macs I bought into this system quite a few years ago. I kept hoping it would get better but it has only gotten worse. Let’s start with the fact that your Mac has to be running all the time for any of the functions ( lights off/on; lights dim, sprinkler on etc) to work. More than 90% of the time not all commands are executed. I’m never surprised anymore to see that my outdoor lights failed to turn on or off, that the lights don’t dim to the desired amount set in preferences and on and on. I completely switched from X10 to Z wave hoping that would resolve some of the command issues all to no avail. And should your Mac crash while I’ve out-nothing will turn off or on. I am slowly switching over to the Kasa system that doesn’t require a computer to run it as I am only doing simple on off and dim sequences. So far that system has performed flawlessly. Don’t waste your money or time with Indigo as it is not worth it
My Indigo, aside from automating house lights and such, also automates the play of music through the house using Airfoil. My main use of Touch is to select a second source of music if I don’t like what the present chosen schedule. A simple hit of a button will switch me to a playlist, internet radio station, or connect to the radio that feeds the in-line input of the Mac Mini that runs Indigo.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
