Yes my first house will be in a residential area built in the 70s. Internet will be installed first along with telephone service. Yes I know I could just use a cell phone but I have asterisk possibilties
So I am looking for energy saving, home automation, and along with adaptable Internet comforts.
I am debating x11 appliances throughout the house such as lights, outlets, and other common conveniences
For the kitchen I would like an atom based computer with a touch screen. I like the idea of useing my knuckles to interface so I don't muck up a keyboard and mouse with the cooking stained fingers.
garage door open from my phone(x11)
power on or off any computer in the house (energy saving)
calendar alarms, phone rings and notifies me what I am missing
call me if fire hazard appliance is left on (x11)
Though I maybe getting ahead of myself, what advice do you have for my first house? I am hoping for some quality crowd sourcing here to make my first one of the best.
Thanks for any and all your help
