Slick shameless plug, eh?...  ;D

Looks interesting though. Makes me wonder if the developer of ZoneMinder (seems to be just one guy) should partner up with the LinuxMCE community to have his code included in LinuxMCE.
1) His code would have a larger audience
2) LinuxMCE could have a larger audience still
3) Everybody wins.

Just a thought...

LinuxMCE's architecture allows for far more than ZoneMinder could ever do, but it would be interesting to attach ZoneMinder as a DCE device, to send data to and fro...

now of course, Orbiter needs to be dealt with in regards to UI, please keep in mind that this system isn't duct taped together.. it is very finely integrated, and all decisions regarding which applications to bring into the fold must take this into mind.

I believe it would be great to attach ZM as a DCE device... Anyone want to look into this? It looks like a software company devs Zoneminder (Triornis Ltd). I'd be willing to contact the developers as well. Let me know.
