    Can anyone help me with the basics for a wireless home security system? Specifically, is there any "generic" control panels/boards out there? How can I attach a transmitter to alert the control panel to an inductive proximity sensor?

    The easiest way is to buy an off-the-shelf wireless system. It must be noted that wireless systems are nowhere near as good as wired systems as the wireless signal can be jammed quite easily. Personally I would never install a wireless security system.

    As far as I know, security systems, to be secure, are proprietary to their manufacturer.
    I'd Google information on a security system that encompasses your requirement for inductive proximity sensors.

    Do you mean that someone could easily, and purposely "jam" the security system signal, or that the signal can easily be jammed because of the many wireless products which compete with each other in many homes now.

    either of those ... accidental or purposeful disruption of the sensor signal

    Added to that, some wireless alarms are prone to false triggering from interference. I wouldn't have imagined this to be the case, but a couple of nights ago someone who's father has a wireless security alarm on business premises told me how easy it was to get them to false trigger. He said it appears that garage openers might even be the cause in his father's example. After sniffing the data for a while hi demoed setting off the alarm with just a burst of signal at the appropriate frequency -- not entirely foolproof.
