I tore down my home automation system after watching the 1977 movie:  Demon Seed

If he has more of those cameras, I will       take 8 or so ;)

I am really interested in the HA thing, been waiting for the cost       of 7" 
tablets to drop enough to put one on the wall in each room       for sensors and 
interface control. I think we are close to that.

The best open source back end package I have found to date is       MisterHouse. 
I have not actually used it yet but it seems       perfectly hackable to me.

This is the kind of thing I would love to work on with a team of       people. 
Maybe a good ChattLab project once we start getting off       the ground.

Pciked up a serious IP camera today while hanging at the Estate of       
Confusion on 301 East Main. Paid $20 for one of these:

In a serious external metal housing. 

Time to add some image capture to that little Linux home       automation 
system.
