Someone recommend an alarm to use?
« on: April 25, 2009, 03:48:55 pm »
 I have been trying to set a few boxes up now for the better part of 4 months now (ya I got sucked in by the video) now I am stuck with this, I can't get anyone to change their minds and go with something else. Not that I don't like LinuxMCE it stills has a long way to go yet. The metadata issue has really set me back trying to tag thousands of songs and movies has been a really chore at the least.
 
 Now I need to find an alarm panel to use that is not going to take forever to set this up. I have a amd phenom 9500 quad core 4 gigs of corsair 800 mhz anyways that isn't really relevant but, I have a webpad dt366 and an itouch and iphone . I still need to find a way to set up a 6 zone audio system as well and so far the only thing I found is a russound cam/cav box that is almost $3000 if anyones knows anything better let me know. Don't get me wrong I do like the system, I am getting down to crunch time and need to get these finished.

The following Honeywell Alarm panels should now be fully supported by LinuxMCE via the VistaICM IP based interface from In2 Networks;

Honeywell Vista-10P
Honeywell Vista-128BP/FBP
Honeywell Vista-15P
Honeywell Vista-20P
Honeywell Vista-250BP/FBP

All features and capabilities of the panels can be controlled / monitored including using any of the alarms sensors to trigger alerts or events in a similar way for example or a ZWave PIR or an IP camera.

See Wiki   page http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Vista_ICM_Panel_Development

For the multi-room audio, check out the squeezebox based solution. The squeezebox receivers are only 150 and are integrated into lmce already.

The SqueezeBox receivers do not yet work PnP. They can be made to work though. The regular SqueezeBoxes, are plug and play.
