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.
