I'm thinking about setting up my house to be a cool type of smart house. I want to place touch screen monitors into the walls of my house, all the monitors will be connected to a server in a basement. I'm thinking HDMI over Cat6. I'm going to put the near future Windows 8 OS on them.
I've never run a multi-screen desktop before. My goal is to have the same desktop image repeated over to all the other screens. So if you leave the kitchen to the living room for example you can pick up where you left off.
The main purpose of this will to make it so you can check the news, weather, grocery shopping list, make it a TV tuner, security system, and to set up a whole house audio system.
I do IT for a living, but sadly I've never messed with multi-screen devices, let alone touch. The main purpose of this post is to ask input and suggestions. Do you think this setup will work? What will I all need on the server for hardware (in particular for the monitor inputs) to get all of these touchscreens going? Any touchscreen suggestions? Will I need a special one for the bathroom in regards to humidity?
Below is an image of what I'm thinking about doing:
