Depends what you mean by 'control'. Here are a few ways you can interact with HomeSeer:

1- Build a DemoPad page with a Web View object; this offers the equivalent functionality of LogMeIn, TeamViewer or similar remote desktop controls
2- If your installation includes an Insteon hub, you can define a DemoPad device and TCP/IP commands to send directly to the hub; ex: GET /3?0262[Dev2_Insteon_address]0F1166=I=3 HTTP/1.0\x0D\x0A; to do this, you need a pretty detailed understanding of the Insteon hub communication protocol, which I acquired by setting logging to 'detailed logging'
3- Define a HomeSeer DemoPad IP device and use RedTechie's RESTfull API; see
4- Define a HomeSeer DemoPad IP device and use Richard Helmke's [rjh], JASON API; see

I could help once you define which approach you want to take.
