Here you tell LinuxMCE how to notify you when there is a problem in the house. For each type of problem you can indicate which mobile orbiters and telephones to notify. The mobile orbiters will beep and show an explanation of what happened together with a live video windows, and LinuxMCE will place calls to the 'other phones' and explain the event.</p>

You can specify when it should notify the orbiters one at a time and wait for each person to respond, or notify all of them simultaneously. The same is true with the other phones. You can also indicate whether LinuxMCE should first try to notify the mobile orbiters and then call the other phone numbers, or vice versa, or notify them all at once.

When there is a problem in the house you will be given the option of calling the neighbors. Enter the phone numbers for your neighbors here. When you choose the 'call the neighbors' option, LinuxMCE will call all of them simultaneously, patch them and you in the phone call so you can discuss what is happening.
