opinions on X10?

I know X10 has been around for a while, is it a reliable system for home automation/security? I've been Googling about it but can't find any real in depth info on it, just basic how it works type stuff.

You might want to try that one in the home automation forum. Integration with external devices and systems is one are where the security system industry is still kind of lagging. There's only a handful of systems that go beyond the basics.

Most newer systems have some type of X-10/home control type of compatibility, but it's generally pretty limited, and a little fiddly to set up. That said, mixing such a system in with a full fledged home automation system can give you some nice options.
