I am completely new to LinuxMCE but I find it extremely interesting and powerful, and I want to use it as the basis in my new home to integrate media, security and some home automation.
I am planning to buy and install the Caddx NX-8E alarm with various wired sensors because of its price, availability in Greece and support with LinuxMCE. I would like to trigger events from its sensors in LMCE and capture video from the IP cameras, make phone call to report status to a phone number, trigger lighting scenarios (turn lights on/off) using z-wave or X-10 and I would like to arm/disarm it remotely from my iPhone or a web browser.
First of all, can all this be done using LMCE or I am just dreaming?
I have read a lot in the forum and the wiki and my latest understanding is that NX-8E is supposed to be supported by LMCE via its RS232 interface but it is actually not supported to allow for all the things that I would like to do.
Can you please give me a clear idea on what is the case with NX-8E alarm as I really need to buy the equipment and if it is not working with LMCE I will need to look at other options.
Many, many thanks for your support and help in this forum!
