This is a good topic for BYOB guys. Automation and security (i.e. surveillance camera set-ups). If you do decide to do a show on this can you be a little specific on equipment especially on the camera side? There seems to be a ton of stuff out there and unless you know exactly what you're doing (which I don't) it's easy to get lost in information.

 

From my perspective I want the WHS to be the hub of pretty much everything in my house and the mControl product seems to work that in nicely. If I recall correctly Tim uses the older version of mControl as well no?

ya , i sent him a link telling him about the update, for those of use that have V2 we get a discount of $150 , so $20 for the update $170 for first timers.

 

im hoping to get it setup this weekend , had to put it on my host sys server 2008 R2 for access to the usb port, then i ran the client on my workstation.

 

im hoping they add a whs 2011 console and or luanchpad icon

 

at this point, looks really cool

Good suggestions. We have to gather up some people who a bit of experience and do a HA show. I have done some with HA and certainly welchworks and Tim have so we can see who else can bring something to table. Great suggestion Krom and keep them coming. Camera have always been an issue so I curious to see how the cameras which I use can integrate into this.

Version 3 has a module in the trial specificly for camera / security. still setting up my lighting so may be a while before i check that out.

 

but I'm in for a show that helps people setup HA, just dont ask me to be an expert, LOL i spend more time creating problems then fixing them. LOL

 

would be great to get someone like Ted Singh Embedded Automation the creaters of mControl on the show too

I agree with pcdoc on this stuff — these systems really should not be dependant on a computer always being turned on for them to function. This kind of dependancy is forbidden in access control systems (card swipe or proximity readers to control who can enter a specific space). You program them from a central computer, but the programming goes to a control panel (often called a floor panel) that interacts with the card readers, mag locks, etc. Underwriters' Labs specifically forbids dependancy on a central computer for anything except programing & updating.
