Is this possible?

I want to turn on the coffee machine in kitchen when the motion detector next to bedroom is triggered in the morning.

Yes you can.  Follow the above link for more info.  I use an X10 motion to trigger a zwave light at NIGHT.

You can also use an IP Camera with motion enabled as a sensor to trigger this this type of Event too by the way.

All the best

and the IP camera in the bedroom can be used to pay for LinuxMCE - Famous marketing quote: "LinuxMCE - The system that pays for itself" ...
