Linux for home automation

Let the Blinds go up and down automatically and close your Windows. Control your lights from any Device (Remote, Mobile Phone, PDA ). You do not need to stand up again. Play your Media Files, DVDs, CDs, TV where-ever you are. Answer your calls from any where in the house, let any call be transferred to your mobile, when you are outside. LinuxMCE can do that for you.

Other beautiful media features are

  • Organize media with special metadata tags
  • View/Listen to media in any room
  • Media automatically follows you through your home
  • New media is automatically detected – even if it’s on other devices like another computer on your network or Network Attached Storage (NAS)
  • Control all your A/V gear through LinuxMCE (using IR, USB, Ethernet, or RS-232) including automatically powering everything on and setting the proper inputs on each device
