I'm usually in the gaming and content streaming forums, but I have a new project I want to get started on. I have another home that is a get away house I only go to a fraction of the year. What I want to do is make my HVAC, security and possibly some plugs accessible to control and manage from my main house. What systems do you recommend I look into?
Maybe something like Lowes Iris or 2gig or alarm.com based around a security system with minimal automation features and can use cellular connections. Or if you have internet you could consider 3 standalone interfaces: wifi thermostat, web interface for alarm system (envisalink or similar), and belkin wemo outlets.
Well I'm not looking to blow more than I need to. Like I mentioned in my first post I only want to do a couple of things. I know I can go buy a Nest T-stat and that takes care of one device, but I'm also wondering if there is a system I can use to access these devices through one place. I'm also not sure which technology to go with.
