(See also: VideoMonitoring)
I'd like to be able to monitor 354 Marlborough Road, and possibly to control some things there. There are a lot of linux and arduino kinds of solutions available for this but I'm not sure how they compare to one another and I guess some research is in order.
Things to monitor & control
motion in one or two rooms
water in basement
salt level in water softener
oil tank level
door locks (set combination remotely?)
This will be a list of commercial things and also a list of standards...
