How we could help this comunity?
very helpful would be access to remote control command specifications (RS232, telnet, whatever) for ha devices (RS232 control for AV Equipment, Security panels, any other stuff).
There is a great generic approach to such devices in LMCE (GSD) and having that specifications would allow us to add plenty of devices and implement plug and play autodetection. There is also a mechanism to share these device templates between user installations. We are working hard to come up with this system in a developer snapshot (probably based on 0710).
You can also "bridge" to LMCE with the DCE protocol. There is information in the wiki on how to interface with a c++ class or plain text over tcp ports
Maybe you can tell me what kind of devices your company offers or what systems are supported?
