Users / Using LinuxMCE for Home-Automation/Security?
« on: June 29, 2008, 06:04:04 pm »
Hello all,

I'm currently looking into an open source home-automation solution that provides the following features:

--z-wave sensor integration
--ip camera support
--cell phone notification

At the moment, LinuxMCE seems to be more than capable (with the added benefit of displacing my Windows MCE installation... good-bye Vista).

However, on this last point, I cannot seem to find a definitive answer, so here's my scenario/question:

If I have a z-wave sensor or ip camera that generates an event (e.g. IP camera motion-detection tripped), can LinuxMCE turn that event into either an email, or contact me via mobile phone (CDMA/Verizon)?


At the very least, I should be able to generate an email, but my limited understanding of LinuxMCE is that it doesn't run with a native mail server.

Thanks much.
