The Home Manager was developed by Unity Systems in Redwood City, California. The company was formed in 1983 for the purpose of creating a Touchscreen based home automation system. The Home Manager was introduced in 1985 and was produced by the company until 1999 when Unity Systems closed their doors and ceased to operate as a company. During their 14 year production run the software was continually updated and multiple enhancements were made available to increase the value of the product for new and existing customers.
The product was sold through a dealer network that consisted primarily of small, dedicated companies enthralled with the excitement that home automation evokes. All dealers were trained by Unity Systems to effectively design, install and service the systems. Approximately 90 dealers existed throughout the United States at one time. Our company, The HomeWorks Group, is one of the only original dealers that continues to support the Home Mananager.
The Home Manager continues to be loved and cherished by most of its owners. Though many dealers who were actively installing the systems when they were available now shy away from them, there remains a number of dealers committed to the longevity of the product. These dealers have the knowledge to repair systems as needed and provide spare parts when appropriate. If you are unaware of a dealer in your area who can help you, send us an email and perhaps we can refer one to you.
