Of late we have been focused on a lot of embedded projects (by "we" I mean myself and my son John). Arduino driven alarm systems for the house and workshop (including a test unit). Then each of these can optionally have a host (a raspberry pi) that communicates to a top-level pi running the home control system (db/gui) lastly there is an android app that allows for remote control of everything.

Netbeans, Visual Studio and OSS-Code (used on the Pi) as well as some other tools are making this much easier than I had envisioned.

We had looked at a number of other home control systems and just opted to roll our own.
