Has anyone looked into "lifting" an Open Source icon set? They might not have everything needed for a home automation setting, but I've seen some nice ones associated with the Cairo-dock project.

Here's a link to the open icons library on Source Forge:

See my User page on the LinuxMCE Wiki for a description of my system configuration (click the little globe under my profile pic).

In my opinion its important to set a proper value otherwise its it will take to long e.g. to open the floorplan ....

it should be enough to set it globally, but it might be useful to adjust the time depending on the called function.

Hey...


2 alternative navigations for the home screen, but i still prefer the first one ( using longpress to call the flooplan ) ... :-) 

Home Screen with swipe navigation

Home Screen with tab navigation

what is the goal? to bring up the floorplan without it having a button?

just wanted to share different thoughts of a possible design.
What do you think about a additional button for floorplan in the main bottom menu?

i still prefer the first screen :-)

What about the swipe gesture? is there only swipe from "left to right" and "right to left"? or is there a "from top to bottom" like iOS does to call the notification center?

Version 1 for sure.

If the room tags horizontally across the top of the floorplan extend beyond the end of the screen I assume you would (and can) suffix with "..."  and make it left-right scroll-able?

Cool, one note, would it make more sense to have the volume/light sliders be vertical? I'm trying to think in terms of muscle memory and familiarity.
