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
- VoIP based Phone system
- 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.
