Just joined today. I bought a new home recently that has multiple rooms with ceiling speakers and am researching how to control this setup as the prior owners left none of the controlling equipment. I've got an older HTPC (acer small form factor) that I can throw into the mix if it makes sense.
I'm also interested in something to takeover the existing ADT home security system in the house.
My background is in IT and specifically data analytics for the last 20 years, from COBOL to Pig and Hadoop I've been playing with computers professionally since before right before Y2k.
Flip side of this background is that the last thing I want to do when I get home is program... lol
