My trusty Ocelot is doing a great job and I trust it far more than any PC to run the house. But now I want to have a more visual way of communicating with it. I've looked at a top end Pronto or a Leopard but I think the best route for me is have a 3rd party software solution that can 2 way commnicate with the Ocelot (and therefore the house), provide a web based interface so I can access remotely (and also use a wireless handheld PC in around the house). The key benefit for me with this solution is that the place can run if the PC is down and I deveop one interface that I can use inside the house via a handheld and also on any PC with web access. I'm a newbie in this area - can somebody give some suggestions as to which software to look at. I'm based in the UK.

Two popular programs that people use for this purpose are Homeseer and HAL.

That's what my "panther" project is headed towards. Not so much http: as vnc: on an Android, iPhone, or iPad. Looking forward to Chromium-OS as it runs Python applets native.
---
I've tested vnc: on Android. It works with my < $200 server over 802.11 (WiFi). Still working on other pieces.
---
Most web browsers have vnc: plug-ins. I've tested IE and Firefox.
---
Why vnc: ? it streams and http: doesn't. One of my Ocelot functions is HVAC and the Android will be my thermostat - at least the visible portion, other part is a bob-cat. Temperature read out streams.
