Minerva is a complete, easy to use home automation suite. It allows you to switch your on lights from anywhere using a mobile phone or PC, email your video, check CCTV footage, control your central heating, and much more. It relies on command line and can therefore be run from virtually any platform (smart phone, PDA, laptop, or remote PC) with identical functionality. The architecture consists of three parts: input, output, and process. Each is completely distinct, meaning you can control any of the house processes from any supported input conduit such as a Web browser, remote control, or SMS. Reports or notifications can be sent to any of the available output conduits.

Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
