I’m planning (although at this stage it still more like dreaming) to take a major step in my setup: go away from the do-it-yourself / reinventing the wheel and start using a ready-made solution.
I spent some time looking around for an open-source solution. I was looking for something simple, with a web interface and narrowed down the contestants to 3: DomotiGa, Domoticz, Domogik.

I eventually made up my mind and chose DomotiGa as it seems the most versatile, robust and hardware compatible. I’m currently installing it on a Ubuntu box (the one on which this server is hosted).

And I’ve just found out a visually stunning interface called SmartVISU that can be plugged onto DomotiGa:
