There seemed to be a lot of interest in this until I brought up that there is a panel available worldwide that is fully supported then the discussion stopped?  Anyone want to test this stuff?

Hi los93sol,

I´m really interested on working on smart pannels integration.  Brake16 suggested my to talk to you about HAI integration and linked this post.
I wanted to know how integrated the HAI OMNI family is, can you control any of the devices connected to it?.  UPB, ZWAVE and of course security stuff.  I´m interested on the Omnipro pannel but looking around I found the ELK M1G.  This pannel has good DIY at coccoontech forum and it is cheaper! 
If HAI is fully integrated, then maybe I could give it a try, but maybe there is a good opportunity to blend this two good products
Any ideas

Cheers,

T

Hello to all,

I bumped in this post by trying to find information on how to play simultanously a set of pictures with some music in the background.  I´m too new on this and I didn't wanted to post something that it is already solved. 
By reading this I believe this is a way to get the same results because music option is independent of whatever pictures are playing.  So you could leave looping a set of pictures while you make a play list of music as the party continues!!!.
What about of taking this part from Mythtv? I hope Im not saying nonsense words  :-\   

Cheers,

Installation issues / Re: Compatibility Question HAI Omni LT

Hi Bryce,

Thanks for the replay, I have a couple of questions, I hope you could help.
 What do you mean by fully integrated?, does this mean that you are able to take full control of the HAI omnipro (Lights, AC, security etc?) or it is only the security part?.

If this is yes, would you be able to control UPB or ZWAVE devices connected to the Omnipro?
Will the status of the devices (security sensors, Lights, etc) be updated all the time?
As far as I understood, Omnipro handles very well status report from the devices, which means that if you manually turned off a light, the system knows that you did it.
I believe there are several commercial producs like homeseer that does similar stuff as LMCE and communicate by using ethernet.

ELK M1G is excellent, I like it a lot, it has a good DIY support in coccoontech, it has some minor issues like status report that is not well kept but maybe they will fix it.  Prices are lower so it looks as a good option.
I think I'll open a post in cocoontech about the integration, maybe we all together find a good way to merge the tecnologies.  Im not a programmer but I'm willing to try.

Thanks for the links, I´ll start reading about the coding, maybe I could learn something new!


Cheers,

Hi Bryce,

I ment LMCE 810, thanks for asking.  So far I only have a hybrid core and one MD (mag zotac ion)  Any hints on HA with OmniPro or with ELK M1G?

Cheers,

Hi to all,

Im  very interested on this topic,  how was the outcome of the test with the omnipro II?  I don't have much experience with LMCE, right now Im running 810 without any problems for some months so far, some succesfull test with flash vdpau on a zotac ion and my next step is to jump to HA and security. Im not and linux expert but I want to help the the lmce proyect.

Have you ever heard about the ELK M1G smart security box, It is similar to the omnipro, also uses serial or ethernet connection but it is more for DIY people.


Cheers,
