Linux MCE

LinuxMCE is a free, open source add-on to Kubuntu which is mostly licensed under GPL. Third-Party developers can and SHOULD make and submit patches and new features.

LinuxMCE is the only all-in-one open source solution that seamlessly combines:

* Media & entertainment with a server for music and video, plus a PVR (like TiVo or Sky+)
* Home automation to control everything from lights to heating with a touch-screen tablet or your mobile phone
* Phone system with video conferencing
* Security system that feeds live video to your mobile device during a security breach

LinuxMCE builds on the superior networking capabilities of Linux to create a home automation/multimedia/communication network. No other operating system has this capability.

Gaming
Remember the good old 80’s? Remember the arcade games and long nights with your buddies? Where have all the console games gone? Just sit down in front of your Media Director, have it call your buddies, and start playing all the old stuff in any room you like….just like in the good old 80’s.

Telecom
Wouldn’t it be great if your telephone system would know if you are home, which room you are in, whether or not you want to accept phone calls, and cater to your preferences?! Wouldn’t it be great if you could block calls from persistent telemarketer phone numbers, or take advantage of cheap long distance rates available in a multitude of Voice Over IP plans? With LinuxMCE all of this is possible, and more.

Climate
You are watching your favorite movie and it is getting hotter and hotter. Let LinuxMCE control your temperature and your blinds automatically. In the morning, have your blinds go up, and in the evening, automatically down. With LinuxMCE, you can say goodbye to having too much sun in your Living Room while watching TV.

Lighting
You’ve had a hard day, and have finally settled on the sofa for the night and begun listening to your favorite music. You forgot to turn of the lights in the garden, frontdoor, or 3rd floor of your flat? Hey, it doesn’t matter! With a touch of your cellphone, you can control every light in your house.

Security
Ever wanted to know what your kids are doing when you are not at home? Do you want to be notified whenever someone stumbles into your garden? Someone is at your front door, but you are not around: Wouldn’t it be great if you could control your home as if you were there?

Media
Store your audio and video collection in one central location on your home network and access it from any Media Director in your home, or stream it to any location over the internet. Record TV shows for later viewing. Watching a romantic movie in your living room with your loved one and want to move into your bedroom, but your hands are occupied with red wine? LinuxMCE detects the movement of the cell phone in your pocket, and your media instantly appears on your bedroom television exactly where you left off.
