If it works also on windows, that would be perfect!
That's like asking "how high is up"...it's very vague, and you don't say what you're working with.
Do you mean open-source X10 like software, to control home automation modules? Do you have custom sensors? Alert you how (email? SMS? What?), on what version/distro of Linux?
More information and clarification is needed.
