GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system.

Phantom is designed to be a completely customizable computer controlled security system. All source code (C++/Bourne script) is included. Phantom was designed & tested on a Linux system, but I assume the C++ portions can be easily ported to other Unix systems (even DOS/Windows, maybe?). The Phantom Security system is for use with intrusion/fire detection equipment such as motion sensors, door magnets, and smoke detectors. However, any Normally Open or Normally Closed device may work with little or no change to the code. All source code and diagrams included are free to use,for distributing, and to modify!

Phantom.Controller is to be used in a system with non-powered security devices, i.e. door magnets. Phantom.Controller2 is for systems with powered security devices, i.e. motion sensors & smoke detectors. Anyone with a basic knowledge of circuit design can mix and match from these two diagrams to mix powered & non-powered devices!

What's New in This Release:
To compile & install Phantom.Security 1.00:
make install
The default installation directory is /home/Phantom/security. However, this can be modified in the top-level (if this is changed, you need to re-run aclocal, autoconf, & automake). However, both the bindir and datadir should point to the SAME directory, or else Phantom.Security won't function correctly, because it won't be able
to find the Phantom.conf file.

What's New in This Release:
Version 1.0!!! GNU Phantom.Security is out of Beta! I have been running Phantom.Security for months straight on my machine at work and believe it is stable enough to promote it out
of Beta!
Created HTML & PostScript versions of documentation. Available on-line.
