And a little night lighting.

Nice! the fast&furious of home automation ;)

Can you map what's in there?

I see the elk controller for sure and what appears to be relays below ...

Oh sure. Left side is an ISY controller, followed by the ELK. Under that is the ELK ethernet interface, ELK thermostat interface, and the ELK databus expasion hub. Followed by a RS485 to IP converter and the backup battery.  The bottom row is a ELK zone expander and 2 relay boards.  The right can starts off with 2 8 port switches followed by a 3x8 OnQ video distribution module.  Under that a few power strips. Last item is a Axis analog to IP CCTV server.  Hopefully that will be hooked up soon! Other plans: Add fail safes to restart key systems if they get locked up, add Sonicwall hardware firewall, and finish the lighting / duct work.

I need to clean it up a bit ... the messy part is my HA part ... the rest is more HT.

Ok, I went to take a picture of my rack mount. Been a while since I looked at it with a critical eye. Things I learned/remembered after looking....

1. Visiting a rack in a basement should be life threatening.
2. You can put together a rack for about $19....... (not counting components)
3. I need to learn to photo shop my pictures!

Have a good laugh......

Man you are tough on yourself! What components are we looking at? I wish I had room for a rack in my wiring closet. I would mount my server in there if I did. Noisy thing is in my media center condole now.

Not to worry. I had a good laugh so should you....   You are looking at network distribution, video distribution, 12v exterior lights powered through a zwave wall wart, and sprinkler control.

By the way if you have a little over 19" of width you can put a rack system anywhere. Those are just rack rails mounted to scrap wood I had laying around. 

Ok, here is a picture of my AV rack (on wheels).

By the way the humor would be if I had zoomed out on the original picture. It looks like a thrift shop exploded in my storage room.....

I pretty much have two panels, one is for the server, light control and thermostat and the other one is for video distribution, not 100% done but as all of you know this is an on going project jajaja photo 11 is just a photo of the touch controlling everything

Dude nice shots. Is that a laptop in the later pic? Is that running your server? I like your touch screen. Very nice look.

Here's my rack.
APC 4-post open rack with bunch of stuff, mainly my HT.
The bottom is clean, the top messy where I throw the misc. modules.
I have blue light too :) , one missing fan.

Are you controlling the flower with Elve? If so can you share the driver?  ;D

:) it's funny as I don't see it anymore!

It used to belong to my ex-wife, even if we can't stand each other now, I can resign to throw it away ... call me sentimental ;)

at the bottom I have a UPS then the PC that drives my condo (ELVE).
in the mess I have a relay module (semi DIY kit, work nice, it trigs the fans, the projection screen and my amps), a globalCache iTach IR module, a xantech IR distribution module, a custom made high speed optical isolation module (to connect the xantech and globalcahe, initialy made to isolate my Anthem preamp and the xantech, I had problemS) and a modified PS3 remote (to accept IR code, semi DIY)
