Appreciate the reco, being in North America that one might be harder to get. I guess the zwave standard should make it safe to use with anything I find here, but I have read some incompatibilities obviously exist between vendors.

I'll get on to looking around for Canadian based vendors.


The wiring is done unfortunately, I had heard of KNX years ago but didn't know that it was available in north america...

According to the wiki, the Aeon Labs Z-Wave Interface usb dongle looks pretty slick.

Thanks guys.

Its been a while since I have been involved with mce, looking through the wiki I gather ZWave would be the best option for a Canadian based home? Anyone have any opinions, I would be grateful.

Had some other things to deal with, but I am on this now and will keep you posted.
I am hoping to get an interface that works on Windows/Linux/Android so it can run an {Web}Orbitor, MD or plain windows box...

I just setup a new core with 810, connected my revo 1610 and it booted up fine. The only odd thing was during the media wizard no matter what output I selected it always output video to vga until I rebooted.

It came up over hdmi and played audio fine through opt spdif so I turned it off then used the webadmin to set it to audio over hdmi and rebuilt the image.

After booting it up it began to download packages, is that expected, or was there something I did wrong in the above procedure? It also restarted the av wizard?

I'm still waiting on it to show up, been back ordered...
It can be accessed via web page and has and sdk so its likely doable.

What model of NAS do you use, and is the performance at all an issue?

Yea its POE equipped, the location is shielded from direct weather, but temp is an issue. I am looking into this now, I can heat the enclosure if I have to. I'll get back to the thread once I have this worked out.

Anyone know what would be required to interface the camera natively with mce? I just dont know enough about the inner workings to know this.

This camera has both a mic and a speaker for bidirectional comm. I hope to use it at a front door, when the door bell is rung, I hope to be able to communicate with it via my MD with its TV or possibly an MO?

Thanks for any ideas!

Hah, you inspired me to look at new stuff and there is a new camera from axis!

This rocks, I'm dumping all the old stuff. The home has a pretty ornamental doorbell, so using this camera, i can hear and talk to the person if I so desire. Cheap too..

I'll start a new thread about integrating this.

That is neat, so how did you plan to send audio back to emulate a full intercom?

Is that something done easily with the KNX stuff? Being in Canada, Ive never really looked at KNX...

SPA is a steaming pile of sh!t, although you are right having used high end gateways at our company voip setup, I am snobbish when it comes to that low end hardware; its just full of issues from echo to reliability. In reality it would probably work as an intercom just fine, but I cant bring myself to work with that stuff.

Also, I need 100% reliability where as cheap hardware like that tends to need to be vulcan nerve pinched from time to time. Not good enough...

My dilemma with the camera is it all has to fit into a dual gang box provisioned already, so I need a bullet camera 1/2"->3/4" OD max to shove into the intercom. No ip camera is that small.

I forgot to mention I was going to use a single port video encoder to emulate an IP Camera. I would avoid this but they just don't make a tiny ip bullet camera which I need.

I'll help keep that link updated once my stuff arrives and I get it setup!

I am about to order a Valcom VIP-172L as an IP based door intercom, then add a bullet camera with a single port encoder such as an

Anyone done something similar, or from a usability point of view see anything I could do better? From an old thread (just getting around to doing this now) I suspect this should be fine.

Intercom is ~450.00 so I think its the cheapest solution to accomplish a "SIP" video intercom setup.
