    Enjoyed that Eman, thanks. I'm running pretty much everything this guy is running, only my servers and software are MUCH cheaper. I don't have the money that this guy has lol! I think I am going to install a dedicated exhaust fan in my office. Been thinking about it for the past 2 years and the video inspired me. My rack is directly behind my desk and it gets warm in here during the summer.

        Unless he has solar, I don't envy his electricity costs!

            Exactly. Where I live is some of the highest electric rates in the USA, that's why I don't buy old data center servers and network gear off ebay, even though they are dirt cheap. All the servers in my network are custom built for lowest power draw (and noise levels) since they are on 24 x 7.

              This! I used to be one of those w#nkers - as an IT guy I went way over the top with all sorts of high-end gear running in my home including servers, firewalls etc. A few years of paying over $1,500 in power every quarter I started to finally wake up and over the years have progressed to a point where this quarter I will earn a small credit, and the quarter after I an expecting a MASSIVE one. Yet ironically I now have a much, much simpler and better setup.

                Yeah, other than the video editing (which needs a lot of storage and compute cycles), the amount of compute power, network throughput and storage he had was over-the-top. At that point you're just posturing.

                  Agreed... just over the top. All that noise and heat. I'm surprised he doesn't have raised computer room tile flooring.. lol. For me, the smaller and quieter, the better. Nowadays you can get serious horsepower in small packages.
                  Think of the environment and your carbon footprint man..
                  HS3PRO 3.0.0.500 as a Fire Daemon service, Windows 2016 Server Std Intel Core i5 PC HTPC Slim SFF 4GB, 120GB SSD drive, WLG800, RFXCom, TI103,NetCam, UltraNetcam3, BLBackup, CurrentCost 3P Rain8Net, MCsSprinker, HSTouch, Ademco Security plugin/AD2USB, JowiHue, various Oregon Scientific temp/humidity sensors, Z-Net, Zsmoke, Aeron Labs micro switches, Amazon Echo Dots, WS+, WD+ ... on and on.

                    There is no right and wrong answer but that he Relishes the Relics but also uses Alexa One thing though, I liked his sense of humor which attributes to good communication skills. But resisting change is futile..........................the future is coming in small packages for those who are tech-savvy, example : https://blogs.nvidia.com/blog/2020/0...-2020-keynote/

                    Else, here is one which should have remained a sticky : https://forums.homeseer.com/forum/homeseer-products-services/general-discussion-area/45550-show-us-your-kit So he should not take all the stick

                            Dam talk about being addicted to Home Automation. I wish I had the money to do that.

                              Actually I'm pretty sure this guy would have an offline copy of the entire Internet
