1. HDA Cloud
The HDA Cloud acts as our global data storage and service delivery platform offering an interface for MHUB owners, HDA Pro’s and 3rd party devices to talk to one another.
2. HDA Cloud Account
The HDANYWHERE (HDA) Cloud account is the account that belongs to the Homeowner and/or End-User. The owner of the MHUB has to have a verified HDA Cloud account before any communication between MHUB systems and the HDA Cloud can take place.
Registering the MHUB system provides numerous benefits including:
- Extending the warranty period on the system by 1 year (must be registered within 30 days of purchase, Warranty is non-transferable)
- Enables advanced functions for things like voice control, uControl, integration with other IoT devices and Sequences
- Provide advanced troubleshooting information to your HDA Pro installer and HDA
- Provide your HDA Pro installer permission to remotely manage your system, they can then modify your system for you without physically being there
3. HDA Pro Account
The HDA Pro account can not be added to a unit unless a HDA Cloud account (outlined above) is present first. This account authorises the installer to monitor the MHUB on their customer’s (the homeowner) behalf. This account sits alongside the Cloud account and gives a 3rd party access to the MHUB’s data and the ability to control it. HDA Pro’s can register Here
The following Settings can be managed remotely:

When I try to install the software, I receive this warning:
“The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.”
This issue is typically caused by a conflict between the program and one or more of the files in the C++ runtime libraries. These libraries are part of the Windows operating system and are used, and potentially updated, by installing or updating several Microsoft or other third party products.
If you are experiencing this error when launching or installing the program, and if the program repair option does not resolve the issue, the most effective method to correct this error is to uninstall and reinstall any Microsoft Visual C++ installations currently available on your computer before proceeding with the installation.
To uninstall all current Microsoft Visual C++ installations
Open the Control Panel and locate the list of programs.
From within the Start screen, type “Control Panel” and click on the Control Panel search result when it appears.
Select Programs and Features.
Click Start> Control Panel
If viewing categories, click Programs> Uninstall a Program
If viewing icons, click Programs and Features
Select Start> Control Panel> Add or Remove Programs
Scroll down to locate the Microsoft Visual C++ entries.
Select each one, starting from the top entry, and choose Uninstall.
Do this for each entry, until there are no more Microsoft Visual C++ entries listed.
