OpenHab and the Adam 60xx module

Now that I have built a pretty good camera security system using the Milestone XProtect software and various IP cameras, I want to take things to the next level.

I have now successfully integrated an Adam 6052 module (Adam 6050 would work as well) with both the XProtect system and a new OpenHab system using the Modbus plugin for the later.  I have looked over multiple smart house technologies and at the moment the OpenHab software seems to be the most flexible and open for integration with multiple vendors.

With this integration I am now able to track when and for how long my doors are opened for using standard cheap NC wired sensors connected to the Adam module.
