DEVDEPOT LAUNCHES HOME AUTOMATION STORE!
Imagine your home coming to life -- lights turning on as you enter a room,
drapes that close at sundown, being able to start your morning coffee
brewing with a bed side switch. Home automation can make your life easier,
bring down expensive utility bills, and make your home or office more
secure. It's *so* easy to do!
And the place to start is:
Home Automation is based on PowerLine Carrier signaling (sometimes called
X-10) that enables control signals to be transmitted anywhere in your house
on your existing 110V electrical lines. Just plug a controller into one
electrical outlet and a module at another -- you now have remote control!
Controllers can be a console setting by your bed, wall switches, timers, or
a key chain wireless remote. They can also be sensors that know when a door
or cabinet opens, that recognize motion -- even monitor daylight or the
weather. Control modules can turn on your sprinkler or lights, activate
motorized shades, sound a chime, or even control your TV and other AV
Best of all your Macintosh or PC can interact with any of these devices --
imagine your Mac waking you at 7am (on weekdays only of course) with gentle
music, then turning on the lights if you aren't up by 7:30! Your PC can
turn on your coffee as you're walking down the hall, shut off unneeded
appliances after you've left the house, but switch on the porch light when
you drive up to your house that night. The possibilities are endless...
