I see a lot of posts here and elsewhere about the Elk system.  My plans up until now have not included a security system, except for possibly some motion sensors and cameras.  I live in a gated community, and fortunately, security is not a big issue for us.  Would the Elk panel still be beneficial to a moderately robust HA setup?

Depends on what you want to do. I like the Elk wireless sensors much more than zWave, better quality & responsiveness. Plus you can do other things to (like these relays). Far better if you can run wires though, is that an option?

will start new post on next webinar.

My preference is to use a ClickPLC as there is a driver for it and it's thus highly flexible and configurable as not only an irrigation controller but as anything else (mine does my garage door, power monitoring, water tank level, water pressure, and every other non security device)

Could you direct me to a website or you tube video on how to get started with PLCs? As of right now, my knowledge in this area is almost zero. Huh
