I see Insteon looked good but they don't offer any door locks. Shame!
Going forward I'd like to go with Z-Wave products due to their easy integration with LinuxMCE.
Question I have is what do I all need to get going? I want to start with a door lock and build out from there.
I understand the PC that runs LinuxMCE but from what I understand I need a controller. Any suggestions on what to buy?
Also, with the cheaper price of Schlage over Kwikset a question arose from poking around. Schlage says they require a monthly fee to utilize the remote capabilities. Does that not apply if it's being controlled by the LinuxMCE box?
I'd also like to use the Android app for unlocking the door. Does that work well remotely?
What I'm trying to do is setup a situation where I can remotely unlock the door for someone. I have a dog and I'm out of town a lot for work and it would be nice to be able to let someone in my house without having to give them a key.
