It is not about speaker routers that are IP controlled, but using active IP devices to power speakers direct, ie. Squeezeboxes et al. For broadcasting audio-only they are perfect.

Did you try contacting hacs? Seems they did something similar for atonhome.com. No idea on availability though, especially with most people going the TCP/IP route, instead of routing audio signals direct.

The creator of hacs actually designed and built the atonhome unit prior to building the ESS and AB8SS etc. The aton devices are flawed, I have one in a box.... no longer being used.

Do you know any speaker routers that are IP based? Personally I haven't seen any...

Hi,

I have ESS system at my home and I'm the author of that wiki page...

I'm interested in expanding my system, but I'm not sure how to add new zones... I've bought system with 4 zones and they were already built together...

Do you know how expansion zones can be attached to existing system ?

I'm interested, send me an offer...

Regards,
Bulek.

I can't remember how many can be attached but I know it was greater then my setup which is 10 zones. I know the former owner of hacs, he is a friend of mine. He is not developing anything new. I do remember him saying you could swap out the serial connection for an ESP8266. Personally I haven't tried it to make this IP based.

If you install the zwave interface on the MD, it should be detected and setup accordingly. At least, that's what it should do :-)

Wow thats a quick reply! If i look on the zwave interface the parent is the core, not the hybrid MD, hence my confusion.

There are people who run there core on an ARM system, odroid-xu to be precise.

There should be no reason to need an interface to a home automation system in the core, only.

Do the zwave controller (Aeon Zstick Gen5 in my case) need to be in the core or could it be placed in an MD?
The reason i ask is because i want to move the server running LMCE core to another building on my property, still on the same network infrastructure.

Hi,

my Dianemo is slowly fading (unsupported destro, lack of support, ...) and I'm thinking what to do for replacement.

Probably I'd like to try LMCE again, but would love to run it on cost efficient server - lower power, no video surveillance anymore, media just through DLNA players (1 or 2) etc...

What HW would be suitable to run such system ?
What would your system look like if you'd start from scratch ?

Another alternative would be OpenHab, but it seems that it doesn't have media, phone and other extensions that LMCE has...

Thanks in advance,
regards,
Bulek.
