Did not find a better place to put this thread so here it is. I am buying a new home soon and decided to look around for smart home options. I will need home security system, audio in most rooms and hopefully some home automation. I understand that IOS 8 HomeKit will finally start addressing this issue but not sure what hardware is currently available, hopefully future proof with IOS 8. I have Airport Extreme with attached hard drive to serve music, pictures and movies, AppleTV and several Airplay speakers, so this may take care of audio for now. I may install inwall speakers with aiplay or bluetooth compatibility later. I don't even know where to start with home automation, I have not seen anything user friendly like IOS 8 should be and can wait till it comes. House is not prewired for security. The area is safe but my wife wants a security system so I would like to buy soon a system feeding of house internet, with ability to see notifications/images on iphone. Any ideas will be appreciated.
