Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Ever since I caught the home automation bug at the Atlanta Code Camp... I've been thinking about cool stuff I can do with it. Bill Ryan and Michael Earls both gave me some GREAT ideas. (Neither of their presentations were strictly on that topic, but both of them touched on it in ways that got me thinking.)

The problem is, I don't have the first clue on what to buy or where to get started. I've been to www.x10.com and a couple other sites, but until I really figure out what it is I want to accomplish I should probably hold off on dumping a bunch of cash into it.

So at this point, I'm curious... what kind of stuff have any of you good folks done? I'd like to hear about it. Post a comment or send me an email. The more info, the better. I know I'm gonna end up spending WAY too much cash once I get firmly hooked, so I want to make my initial investment worthwhile.

As I learn more, I'll blog about it, so expect to learn more with me. ;)  I've added a Home Automation channel to my blog, and you can pick up the feed here

Sorry to see this so late. You really don't say what it is you want to do with the home automation. If you want to contact me use the email address on my web page. Don't be afraid that I'm using Linux. Different OS, dame principles.

I got this bug too and transformed it into a hobby. I started home automation two years ago and I've got quite a few gadgets in my hose. I'm proud of the two adjustable beds that I've designed myself, very practical and very comfortable.
