What is the recommended setup for me?
« on: June 11, 2011, 10:48:16 am »
I live in Cyprus and this is my first post in the forum.
I would like to have your recommendation about the ideal system for my needs
Well i want a system to be able to control everything in my house (climate,lights,media,satellite tv and iptv).I have two satellite dishes (one with motor and one with two lnb),2 iptv receivers (pirelli HY100STB).

 I have one dreambox 500s, one htpc (core2duo processor,4gb ram,500gb hard drive,twin dvb-s2 tuner running xbmc and vdr),a second htpc (zotac ion hd-id11) ,one sheevaplug which i use as nfs server), a laptop, 2 android phones, 1 mini pc for my son.i have also  a desktop pc in my private room which is running linux with vdr and xbmc and it has a single dvb-s2 tuner. and all usual electric appliances.i have cat5 passed through all rooms.Where is needed i use hubs.

Forget i have an external lift also and there i use a remote control to lock it so it cannot be used by children.
I need also wireless indoor cameras and external ones with motion sensors that will record on a pc.i need also fire alarm.
i want to control everything from a central system and has the less cables.

What you should suggest me to do?
