I use X10 (cheap - lights, outlets and PIR) and 1-wire (very cheap - temp and soon Humidity). Do you own your condo? meaning are you willing to run structured wiring? Cat5e/6 around
I don't use Nest but do use a Filtrete 3M-50 that I am trying to add support for (it is cheaper and not as Apple-esque).
What would you fit if you were just buying a normal alarm system? think of what you would want to cover then apply that to LMCE. PIR's, window/door sensors are all readily available in LMCE. Add camera's, sirens, alerts via email and phone
In general, I like the ability to use sensors for multiple things - for instance PIR's are used for security and to trigger lighting. Temp sensors help with heating system and (hopefully - when I work this out) fire alarms (if the sensor is over a certain temperature - FIRE!!!)
