Building the new house is coming up very shortly and with the audio and visual I have planned within the house I am looking to a home automation service to control it all. Main reason is to make the wife happy and have everything on the one iPad for her to easily control.
I assume people have done it before and was wanting some advice on what was best to use and had the easiest interface. I have seen a demo of Control 4 and was very impressed. I have provided a list of what I am planning for the house and what I want to be controlled. I am planning on some cameras around the house that can be added also to see through the app remotely but don't think that is too hard to do. I am not interested in air con control. I would like the home theatre lighting to be controlled via the app also but not a deal breaker.
Let me know what you guys think and your experiences with it all.
