myServer Apps

Apps sm

Overview

The Allonis suite of Apps truly differentiate the myServer solution from all other automation and media control systems. The word "App" keeps evolving but today is most commonly defined as a program which runs on the Internet, on your computer, or on your phone or other electronic device. Allonis Apps run on myServer and can be used on any modern device like an iPad, a laptop PC or an Android phone or tablet.

Compare the richness and easy-to-use user interface with any of the competition. Compare how thorough the feature set is for a given service (like Google Music). Compare the continously growing list of supported services.

If you need an App developed that isn't already supported, let us know on the Allonis Forum. Most Apps started their life just that way.

Irrigation

The Irrigation App knows your weather forecast and will automatically adjust the watering schedule based upon your local weather conditions. An unlimited number of irrigation zones are supported. Each zone is connected to a "Control Family" device. So any member of the Control Family can be used as the control interface for the zone. Control family drivers from Rain8, HAI, Insteon, Vera and UPB are available today. Optionally use our Relay8 WiFi network based relays. See below.




Features

  1. Adjust your regular irrigation settings from a easy to use interface
  2. Control each zone manually
  3. Integrates with national weather service
  4. No need for expensive controller - Just a simple relay available from Allonis
  5. History of irrigation events
  6. Seasonal Adjust changes the watering times by the specified amount so you don't have to reprogram your programs for different seasons. If it is the rainy season you can set the seasonal adjust to 50 and your watering times will be cut in half (50%). If its the dry season then you can make it 150 for longer watering times.

Price $49.99


Here is a really simple way to integrate irrigation into your existing or planned irrigation system.
The Relay8WiFi is an 8 relay controller that connects to myServer via a WiFi (or ethernet) connection. So, place the controller near the water valves and connect each solenoid to a relay. Plug the relay controller into it's provided power supply. Configure the WiFi network and add the driver to myServer's control family. Start programming your watering schedule.

Movie Autoloading

myMovies allows you to manage and playback all your locally stored movies and tv shows. Using any tablet or phone you can instantly search for and play any video in your collection. It's easy, simple and fun to use. Browse cover art from the main interface scene as shown below and then view details of the movie you select.

But how do you batch load your movies into the system?





Introducing - myContent support for Autoloader

If you own a Kaleidescape system you may have heard that they are going out of business.  Upgrade your system now to myMovies.

"I have a lot of movies...how do I add them into the myMovies system?"

Easy...once myMovies and myContent application are installed on your myServer system, purchase or rent Allonis's autoloader.

We ship to you ASAP.  When you receive it, plug the drive into a USB3.0 port on your myServer PC.  Configure myContent (Settings tab) to point to your autoloader.

Add up to 100 Blu-ray or DVDs on the top of the autoloader.  Hit the Batch Rip button in myContent application.  You will see the autoloader spring into action.

A DVD will drop in, and roughly an hour later it will spit out and the next disc will drop in.  A week later (depends on how many movies you have), your movies are all archived into your myMovie collection.

myContent application will have looked up the metadata of each movie right after it's ripped so that the coverart, actor biographies and picture, etc. will be immediately available.

You can start watching the first movie even before the second disc is finished ripping.

After your large batch of DVDs / Blu-rays are archived, you can rip one movie at a time using your myServer optical drive (or another PC on the network that has myAgent running).  If you rented the autoloader from Allonis, return it ASAP so we can cancel your rental subscription autopayment.  If you purchased the autoloader, you can set it up in myContent to archive your hard drive files to Blu-ray discs for long term secure storage.  Even your myServer database backups can be ripped to Blu-ray automatically!

Features

  • Up to 100 discs can be managed automatically at a time (about two weeks worth of ripping!)
  • If you are ripping to Bl-ray or DVD, bad discs are automatically dropped out the reject slot at the bottom of the autoloader to keep them seperate from the completed good discs.
  • Purchase or rental plans are available
  • Copy content from the disc, or archive hard drive content to disc. (not at the same time, however)
  • Tightly integrated with the rest of the myServer automation and media control Apps
  • Software supports ripping to M-Discs which will last literally "forever" (if not physically destroyed by fire, impact, or scratched etc.).  If you are serious about archive longevity, make sure you purchase the M-Disc Deluxe Autoloader (not available for rent).

 

Content Manager

 

myMovies includes Allonis myContent Manager. This is a standalone application that improves the efficiency of managing large media collections. It enables users to add, edit, import and delete movies from any networked PC. These tasks can be tedious from smaller form factor devices, remote controls and touch screens with only on-screen keyboards.

myContent Manager also handles importing older DVDLobby databases as well as from DVD Profiler, MyMovies, Movie Collectorz, XBMC and Plex.

One-Click Archiving and Look-Ups

Perform DVD or Blu-Ray movie look-ups from myContent Manager. With select archiving programs such asg AnyDVD (RedFox) and DVDFab, you'll also enjoy one-click archiving.

We've also thought of our integrators.  myContent Manager requires a password to enter ADMIN mode for more critical settings and prevent unwanted changes to the system.

Playback Flexibility

With unprecedented support for hard-drive and MegaChanger based systems (or a combination of the two), family and friends simply click on the movie poster to start the movie in the proper location. It's so easy, even your children will be able to watch their favorite movies without ever touching the physical media.

Support for multiple software and hardware players. You're family doesn't need to know anything about the type of movie file as myMovies handles which player to launch for which movie type for the best experience.

From a myMovies user interface, you can choose to playback a hard drive sourced movie on one or more PCs in multiple rooms of the house as part of the standard configuration.
