Users / Home automation?
« on: May 06, 2007, 03:57:56 am »

I'm curious about the home automation mentioned in this video.

I would like to know what devices are hooked up for home automation?

I have a usb IRtrans for controlling ir devices I couldn't find any other premade usb ir trancievers that worked in linux at the time.
It can use an lirc client but has its own software for recording and sending ir signals.

I have a CM11A to control X10 modules around the house like lights.
I'm looking for a better option for controling the thermostat(I don't like x10 thermostat option)

I'm also curious what was used for viewing the cam at the front door?

Installation issues / requirements?
