Hi all,

Looking to get started in the wonderful world of home automation, but there are an awful lot of options out there. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction given my criteria.

What I want for now is actually pretty simple:

Control lights throughout the house

Control garage door.

Do these things via Tasker on Android

I have an always on server running Ubuntu that can run any automation controllers, preferably open source. Ideally I would have a USB device on that machine that transmits commands to the lighting and garage door opener.

Is this realistic at this point?
