Just a couple of screen shots currently. These are live floor plan screens in ACE. The backend is a Perl script that parses HV status update messages and changes the icons. It works pretty well.

This is the first floor. What you can't see are the buttons that represent the zones. They're basically thin rectangular buttons that are normally transparent, but turn red when their zone becomes faulted. The orange and green boxes represent alarm keypads. Green is ready to arm, orange is not ready, blue is armed in home mode, red is armed in away mode. [This is a two family house with two partitions.] "TV" is indicating the mode of the entertainment center, and Off is the status of the A/C.

Here's the lower floor with two faulted zones, the back door, and the PIR in the office.
