Just moved into a new (old) house and wanting to add not only lighting automation, but also some form of security system as well.
I have quite a bit of positive experience with Insteon, so I'm planning on using that for the lighting control throughout the house with an ISY994i controller. That part I have down pretty well.
Because of the proximity to the city, I want to add a simple security system as well. This is where I start getting out of my comfort zone. Security wise, I want to keep it simple. 2 wireless door sensors, 6 wireless window sensors, a motion detector or two, and a interior/exterior horn. Preferably tied into the Insteon network so it knows when we're in or out. I've looked at the Elk M1EZ8 and it looks quite reasonable.
But then I've also started thinking about a front door and rear door camera. Something inconspicuous (though it doesn't have to be covert). And probably something that will email me if the security system is on and it detects motion. Maybe? I don't anticipate sitting at a monitor watching the cameras, so I'm thinking something like that makes sense. But I haven't a clue how to find an appropriate camera system that now integrates with Insteon and the Elk.
Any suggestions? I know I'm wishy-washy about the camera thing, so I'd be happy to hear any suggestions you all have.
Thanks in advance,
