I assume at least one of these bulbs for 220V? And a interface? Or do they talk real Wifi (in a 802.11a/b/g sense)?

I had a lot of issues with vbox and z-wave stick pass-through

Onkyo AMPs also work great. The new network receivers TX-NR 414, 515, and 616 all support full remote control.

Regarding price.. if you want home automation you can't just buy the cheapest parts from best buy. Do your homework.

you can use a raspberry pi and write a DCE wrapper for libcec. That would be the first standalone DCE device built for LMCE :-)

the OneWire DCE device uses the OWFS client API. If you can see the devices in OWFS, they will appear in LinuxMCE.

hey what do you expect :-) You're talking about limited device support because your two gadget proposals for brand new stuff are not implemented yet? Heck you were pointed to existing stuff that works well. Z-Wave is mature and there are a lot of other options like KNX and others. Home automation does not stop right after the bulb. You got a lot of valuable information in this thread. Still you tell us everything was insulting?

Stop trolling :-)

when it works in OZW, it will work in LinuxMCE and in ago control

Relative to other systems it's great, but I definitely can't just purchase a device and expect it to be essentially plug n play.
what is "a device"?

I'd appreciate if you could refrain from undifferentiated phrase like the above. You did not even bother to read the existing documentation regarding home automation device support. You can't expect from any HA/MCE software to support every piece on the horizon. We support plenty of devices and many of them plug and play. But you need to do your homework. This is a community project. If you don't want to take the effort better buy a tailored solution like Dianmeo, Crestron, control4, home seer, micasa verde or others..

I forgot to respond to this, obviously they don't have a mini rotating antenna, that's not how it's done, they have an antenna array that gives a very similar effect. Interestingly enough, this should also make WPA2 more secure since capturing handshakes after sending DEAUTHs should prove more difficult.
Yeah, sounds very good on paper. But most WLAN router vendors make devices that don't have highly sophisticated antenna grids but just two omni-antennas attached to the back of the router. In these cases, beam-forming is just a buzzword to sell more devices to people like you.

hey if you know it better just go for it. I've done some tests in the past with 802.11g and that was too slow. nfsroot puts a lot of traffic on the line. I'm not sure how much beam forming shall help.. it is not like the AP is rotating a uni-directional dish antenna with a small motor :-) And even then you have a shared medium where send and receive can collide, even with a single node. But maybe current 802.11n speeds are sufficient, I did never try. If you want to go that route, please report back if it works.

regarding the bulbs, it is not practical to just replace the bulb as you would lose ability to control them with the existing switches. If it is switched off with the switch, you can't switch it on over wireless.

If you just need that functionality, LinuxMCE is overkill. Look at agocontrol ( This page describes how to hook up commands to extensions:
