I know some of this would most likely go in the General Support area but since I am going to get the Hub, I wanted the best advice that might apply to the hardware that the Hub comes with.

I have an old wired system but basically want to start over from scratch for the security part.
I understand that the Hub will connect to different protocols but my main question is, if I am starting from scratch, which protocol would be the best to use? Again, especially for the security part to start.
I see a lot of Insteon devices and I hear some things about z-wave.
So, for you guys that have already been through this in your house, if you were to do it over and if you were getting the Hub, what would you get?
Thanks very much.

You have a lot of options and it often comes down to personal preference. When it comes to security devices, Z-Wave does have an edge on Insteon in some ways (like deadbolt locks). You can't go wrong with either choice though.
