the-monitor-outlet_1781_42733.jpgWhat is a home automation system without a 15" inwall LCD touchscreen? Exactly! I don't understand why a raw touchscreen monitor without the base and plastic costs more than a standard 15" LCD monitor? Solution, take a 15" LCD touchscreen monitor bought off of ebay and turn it into a custom inwall touchscreen... I choose a 15" NEC 1560v+ with integrated touchscreen because the viewing angles on NEC LCD displays are excellent. The screen will act as a digital picture frame when not in use and will also have built-in microphone and speakers via a 1 watt Canakit CK122.
