Anyone out here who has some experience with LINbus? LINbus is a simple automotive serial bus system related to the better known CAN-bus.
I have been working on the integration of an AXA remote 2.0 Window Opener(document only accesible for registered OpenRemote users). In Domoticaforum.eu I found a document which suggests it uses LIN. In my AXA integration document I have a link to a LINbus description.

In contrast to the secure IR interface, the LINbus interface can report the open/closed status of the window, which is interesting if you want to do rules. I am waiting for feedback from AXA on how they use this protocol. I am not really keen on adding an other wiring system in the house though. But as I am reconstructing a part of the house, I wouldn't mind to use it for the few roof windows there.

The reason that I choose to experiment with the AXA device is that it is relatively cheap, but robust. For the price of one Fakro Z-Wave Window Opener you almost get three AXA's


There is now an Arduino Uno R3 Shield available to control the Remote 2.0 from Axa !.

Interesting! I will have a look into it. I put my little project on hold, because I do have a somewhat older version of Velux windows. Axa says it does support Velux, but did not mention they only tested the newer windows that have different hinges with less friction.
There is an interesting development at ZWave.me. In the Z-Uno project they combine Zwave and Arduino.

Z-Uno is there an english website available ?. Who is behind this ?.

It is from the people of Z-Wave>me (http://www.z-wave.me). Afaik there is not yet a page in English. On there Github space you can find some (I think unfinished) software development
