So it is clear that Raspberry pi operates on a Linux kernel and with community support can be turned into one stellar automation system.

Paradox EVO comes to mind check www.alarmparts.ca to buy Paradox control panels and other cool alarm accessories Including flex floor sensors which can be used to activate lights and other occupancy or activity related actions.
