-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.

Unfortunately  Microsoft have removed the possibility to install unsigned drivers in this version. We are working on a solution for this problem.
