    I'm also looking for a solution similar to this.
    Basically I'd like a heating system that can operate TVRs to have different temperatures in different rooms. It just makes sense to me.

    I don't think that the protocol details are all that easy to find actually. There's the Rfxcom solution that will recode many protocols though.

    I think its the cost of comfort that's put me off the most, it also doesn't appear to be quite as adaptable (in terms of plugging into other systems) as some of the others. Software wise there's a...

    I've kept an eye on Domoticz, looks very promising. Last I looked it wasn't supporting motion sensors. My mind keeps switching between Comfort system and other systems. I'm not usually this...

    You're probably talking about bluecherry, although I think that just offers a free trail. There's a few Linux based cctv packages. For windows there's Milestone's XProtect range which used to offer a...

    Z-Wave does look promising, although it seems to be a hole where mains sockets should be. There are a few of the plug-in modules but I've not found anything designed to be 'integrated' socket wise....
