Users / Google Summer of Code (GSoC) - Ideas and Mentors Needed!!!
« on: December 31, 2009, 04:42:59 pm »
Hello Community,

I will be reviewing documentation on applying for the Google Summer of Code 2010 (the application process begins in April). I'd like to get a head start on filling out the applications/documentation required. We're in the process of creating a list of ideas for student projects. I'd like to solicit help from the community on ideas. Many of you have asked for feature enhancements and things to be fixed, so here is your opportunity. Please post your ideas and a detailed description, skills you think that are needed, and how difficult the tasks is (in your opinion). The development team will then review and update if necessary.

In addition, we'll be looking for people to mentor the students. You will need knowledge of LinuxMCE and also knowledge of the technology for said idea (in order to assist the student in implementing the idea). You do not have to be the mentor of an idea that you post...

Here are some useful links:

Your help would be appreciated!

Users / Nokia N810 Demonstration Video Needed
« on: October 04, 2009, 04:54:52 pm »
Hello Community,

We're looking for someone to create a video that demonstrates the LinuxMCE capabilities with the Nokia N810. Preferably, we would like a video that demonstrates ALL of the capabilities the Nokia N810 has with the LinuxMCE, so if you have a "complete" LinuxMCE system, then that would be a plus. If not, please submit a video of whatever capabilities you currently have. Please contact me if you have any further questions.


Users / Website Edit - Lighting Features Site
« on: October 04, 2009, 03:44:58 pm »
Below is an edit of the lighting feature part of the website. Please review and make updates (i.e. add features unique to LinuxMCE, verbiage changes, etc...).

With LinuxMCE, you will never have to worry about whether you left the bathroom light on or whether your elderly family member will be able to navigate around the home when it is dark outside. LinuxMCE harnesses technologies such as X-10, KNX/EIB, Z-Wave, EnOcean, and Insteon PLC, among others, to provide lighting capabilities found nowhere else. Control your home’s lighting by schedule, motion detection, door openings, sunrise, sunset, security alarm activation, and more:

• Have lights turn on and off as your enter and exit rooms
• Remotely access your lights via the LinuxMCE web-interface
• Reduce your carbon footprint using lighting scenarios
• Integrated with the LinuxMCE Security features, if the security system notices an event, you can have your lights conduct a certain scenario in order to both scare the intruder and alert your neighbors.
• Integrated with the LinuxMCE Media features, have your lights dim when media is playing
• Integrated with the LinuxMCE Telecom features, for the hearing impaired, have your lights turn off and on when the phone is ringing

Users / Website Edit - Telecom Features Site

Below is an edit of the telecom feature part of the website. Please review and make updates (i.e. add features unique to LinuxMCE, verbiage changes, etc...).

LinuxMCE uses the most powerful free and open source PBX (private branch exchange) available today: Asterisk. The Asterisk PBX provides all the functionality of high-end business telephone system and combined with our media, security, climate, and lighting capabilities, LinuxMCE is the ultimate telecom system for your home or business. LinuxMCE includes <link to asterisk features site on>all of the functionality of the Asterisk System<, and provides the following features unique to LinuxMCE:

• Plug and Play detection of VOIP phones (including the popular Cisco 7970)
• Control your home from almost any phone via dialing into your home number and accessing the LinuxMCE system
• Control your home via the Cisco 7970 color touch screen <link to 7970 picture with orbiter or Thom’s 7970 video>
• Using our house-mode feature, which can be incorporated with your security system, you can decide where to route phone calls, depending on whether your home is set to:
                     o Unarmed – At Home
                     o Armed – Away
                     o Armed – at home
                     o Sleeping
                     o Entertaining
                     o Armed – Extended away
• On-screen Caller-ID, which pauses all playing-media (optional)
• Interactive Voicemail
• Using a Phoenix Solo USB Microphone and a set of speakers, you can create an effective speaker phone system that provides solid audio fidelity and a microphone pick-up range of roughly 10' square from where the microphone is placed <link to Thom’s video>
