I'm a little confused. I currently use the MLHS Plugin and Homeseer to control lights/show status (X-10) on my ML Scene buttons. Since I do not use Homeseer for much beyond this, will the new MLLighting plugin also allow me to show the lighting status on my ML Scene buttons? If so, it sounds like I could switch to the MLLighting plugin and scrap Homeseer altogether.
