Install (Fri 05/17/2024)

ECS is free and open source

Note that the default ECS configuration is somewhat minimal (nothing is assumed about your application).
If you provide us a description of your needs/devices, we'll customize it accordingly (for little or no charge).

ECS contains no spyware/adware.
Nor does it use a central server, or upload any information to same.

ECS is a portable application (i.e. no files are created or modified outside of the ECS folder).
