For the sake of £6 (and a lot less hassle) it has to be worth it  ;D

Thanks guys.

This is what got me looking at MCE in the first place. I wasn't convinced it was 'home automation' though I knew from the various thread it was a multi-media centraliser. I guess I need to install and experiment a bit and perhaps as you say think about a solution to a problem a bit laterally - I still think some form of scripting engine would be handy as it opens up more possibilities.

 ;D ;D ;D

Yeah; I've read the forums and this seems to be the best solution. My CORE is a laptop so I *assume* simply purchasing a USB Ethernet nic will be fine????

Hi all,

Read the Wiki but still confused.
See I need to add EXTERNAL_IFACE and INTERNAL_IFACE ; does that mean I edit the /etc/network/interfaces ??
Not seen the web admin yet as can't ssh and can't IP into the core from a web browser.

Someone with a single nic care to help?


Users / Media events for z-wave
« on: January 28, 2013, 05:23:06 pm »

New to LinuxMCE so might be a noob question.
Can I interrogate an action via a streamer or media director and have it trigger a z-wave device?
For example:

User decides to stream so audio via a slingbox or media director device - when the audio ends I wish to trigger the z-wave socket to turn the amp off (amp connected the streamer obviously  ;D).
Is that possible?
Can I (presumably via a script) do more advanced things like:

User turns on tv
Streamer amp comes and plays get_out_my_house.wav
email and ams is then sent to my phone

Obviously it's the home automation aspect of MCE that I am looking at.
Any advice welcome!

Perhaps I should lower my expectations!  ;D
I know it can function as a squeezebox and therefore that is effectively integrated within the ui (orbiter or media).
How does camera streaming work on an orbiter? - is it just a web console effectively???

Hi all,

I'm new to all this and am looking for a complete integrated remote/home automation system.
For example!
Can I display a web address within the UI on say an iPhone? (for example streaming from an ip camera , or perhaps a realtime graph of temperature).
I wish to use the raspberry pi for this ; how do I install/run on this platform (noob for sure!  ;D)

Any help/comments/advice welcome!
