Another note: It seems, that Dianemo is no more. The two people that had ties to Dianemo and visited the forum frequently to help Dianemo's customers are no longer active in the community.

Hallo Vytron21.

Welcom on Linuxmce.

We need more information from you about your system to help you with problems.

The best version for you to install is 14.04 this version is in developmend.
For assistance you can go to irc channel #Linuxmce on freenode.

Further to answer de your questions about the difference to Linuxmce and Dianemo is that Linuxmce is free and for Dianemo you need to buy a licence.
The software is almost the same.

Hopes this answered your questions.

Ok, so i am very new to the world of home automation. I want to use LMCE, but i am having issues. firstly the only version i can get to install on my computer (nvidea graphics card by the way) is 10.04 but it appears to nont have all of the features mentioned on the website. when i try install anything newer it says that the installer had failed. so after getting lost in the tangles of the wiki, i tried searching the forum for answers....and found more questions. i see people talking about using Dianemo instead, and that dianemo and linuxmce are made by the same people? so now i need to know which i should use, and are both free? and where do i get the installer for Dianemo? and is there anywhere where a straightforward manual for this thing is? the instructions on the website skip around quite a lot.

Please help,

Only the wiki is insecure

Although I have seen 'add-on' units before I do not believe that pass insurance tests in the US nor in Canada.  They are considered extremely dangerous and death hazards for small children.  An integrated unit is the best option.  As posde says $150 is a bargain!

150 sounds about right for the motor itself. If it already has Z-Wave to control it, it sounds like a bargain.

We are planning on a LinuxMCE based home automation system in the new house, and were wondering about automating blinds.  Is there an inexpensive version?  I see some Z-wave controllable blinds out there, like from Bali, but the cost is prohibitive - around $150 per window!  Is there something cheaper out there?  Maybe something that connects to continuous-loop blinds and just uses the loop as a chain?
