Creating a network of LCD screens that display 'room stats'?
My mission is to have my house automated, and in that process, in each room I want to have a touchscreen LCD monitor with a laptop mounted behind it displaying stats for that room (e.g temperature, weather, news, panic button etc). I've come up with a mockup of what the very basics of the UI would include. Each unit will be connected by wireless (or CAT6 depending if I can be bothered) to my main server, which will push all the data not collected by the sensors (e.g news).
What would be the best way to design the UI and to link it with the various sensors involved?
