intraHouse interface look and feel is customizable to a great extent to optimally personalize the user interface. In the program settings you can change both the theme and graphic image of the interface look. There are several ways to personalize the look of the user interface: 

  • Select the theme, adjust the background, font, windows, and keys.

  • Create plans for rooms, house, outside area by making them as real as possible. The process of plan creation is described in the sections “Levels” and “Tips for plan creation”.

  • Customization of menu structure and positioning of control keys: see description in the section “Customization of user interface”.

  • Display of personalized widgets on start page of the user interface (e.g., clock, calendar, weather forecast, social networks and any other widgets available on the Internet). This function is described in the section “Info”.

To customize the interface theme, please go to HouseManager, Themes tab. The selected Theme will be applied to the look of Primary Interface only, because HouseManager will always have Factory theme. A theme can be further personalized by changing the background, font, windows and keys.
