Home automation? Maybe later
Recently I listened in on a discussion about home automation. A home owner who was planning to build a new house expressed his surprise that home construction companies do not propose any serious home automation systems. A plumber/electrician complained that he could not sell or repair such systems because he lacks the skills. A teacher was raving about how home automation is the future, that intelligent buildings will help us save enormous amounts of energy and that we all must make our homes more intelligent. As I was listening I wondered how home automation could make my life better.
