I'm really considering putting the whole house on Insteon . . . expensive but might be nice.
Side-topic: Anybody know how much an automated light/hvac system (insteon) would add to a home value? Will my investment in insteon pay off?
Same website has a 15 minute shutoff timer for closets.
Person closes door to do business, when they leave the fan comes on for 15 minutes as long as the door is left open.
curiousB that site is a great find
Side-topic: Home Automation systems don't add value to a house when selling and can negatively impact sales by discouraging potential buyers. They're non-standard gadgets without a broad support network.
That said. Microsoft Kinect boxes are great for setting up a fully gesture controlled home automation system. I'm probably the only person with 6 Kinect boxes and no XBox. But it works great with my Atari 2600.
(no my work is not on the Internet, also I do work for Microsoft and I did buy all my Kinect boxes)
