-In order for NetHome to be able to communicate with the Tellstick transceiver,​ you must install drivers that make the Tellstick appear as a COM-port. These drivers are available from [[http://​www.ftdichip.com/​Drivers/​VCP.htm | FTDI]], but since the Tellstick device has its own product id, we must modify the installation files a bit so it also accepts this id as a serial port. Unfortunately this small change breaks the signing of the drivers which makes the installation a bit more messy. The instructions below are for Windows 7, but should work for all versions of Windows.+In order for NetHome to be able to communicate with the Tellstick transceiver,​ you must install drivers that make the Tellstick appear as a COM-port.
