'''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.
