Pluto is a free, open source smart home solution that seamlessly integrates: 1) media with a server for music, movies and tv shows, plus a PVR and DVD Player, 2) a home automation system with touch-screen tablet and Bluetooth mobile phone controllers, 3) a phone system with video conferencing, 4) a security system that feeds you live video on your mobile phone when there are interruptions, and lets you speak to visitors through your stereos, and 5) a home PC solution. Check it out at www.plutohome.com

It lets you control your X10 devices with the PC, webpads, pdas and mobile phones, using both scenario shortcuts and interactive floorplans.

And does it work with the BlackBerry specifically?

Nope, I didn't think so...

Borderline, but not quite.

It meets the forum rules because of: (1) NOT avertising a price (2) only posting a base URL. (3) and done ONE POST only as an announcement; and (4) this product has not been announced before.

However, since it is not BlackBerry specific....it still does work on mobile phones, and by inclusion, BlackBerry so it still qualifies. However, this latter part is sometimes controversial.. The latter may be a legitimate concern.

I came from the home theater industry (I used to work in the home theater industry -- see http://www.marky.com/hometheater --) and this looks like an interesting product, although I wouldn't have the time to try it.

Also, Pluto appears to be open source:
http://plutohome.com/support/index.p...ment&docID=101
this would yield credence to the claim that there's no catch to the freeness of the product.

Verichat doesn't work on the BlackBerry specifically; there are other versions of Verichat.

Let's be fair and only yell "SPAM" on the second offence, okay? We have a policy of encouraging software development for BlackBerry.
