Is their any software or combination of software hardware that allows the following
Touchscreens (Ipad or similiar)
Touchscreen control of the various systems
Intercom (2 way video ideally?) between touchscreens / audiozones
Intercom (2 way audio, 1 way video) between 2 way cameras and touchscreen
The only DIY solution I seem to find is using Windows based tablets with HAI's Omnitouch pro's software package.
It just seems like a complete waste to be spending upwards of 700 per 5.7e just to get intercom out of the system or having to use a beefy windows tablet to run their software. And then you still need the automation studio package to customize anything. ANd of course I am not putting a tablet or 5.7e in each room.
I would be more than willing to jump ship from HAI, but Elk doesn't seem any better. HS and CQC do not have this either from what I can tell. I am looking for some combination that utilizes each interfaces microphone and possibly camera for intercom use. The only option I found was a Crestron install a company by the name of DES did on a 14000 sq ft house! I was hoping for something more DIY.
Any leads or links would be appreciated.
