My home automation list is almost ready. I have also found a supplier in
marathalli to get some of the basic insteon and x10 switches. Man! Its
so difficult to find any supplier in India. And their costs are really
really really high.

I am thinking I might as well go with zigbee from NCD devices. They are
much cheaper, and come in 220v versions too. But the mesh hybrid network
can be a little complex. But heck, what does it matter, they aren’t
complex enough for me. I can solder a zigbee board myself.

Hmm.. but the decision to the final technology contender will happen as
soon as I have finalized my house blue print.

My “Janeman”, my AI for the home automation is also ready. She is built
of Charlix 0.4 and a lot of coding and programming I have done. I can’t
wait until my house is finished and Janeman 1.0 is deployed. This
reminds me, as I had predicted, apple IPAD is already out in the market
2 months earlier to my prediction. That means I can very soon get cheap
touch screens with wifi enabled for my house automation. I was also
searching for 2nd hand touch screen PDA’s, they would do the purpose
too.

I should write a detailed description of my home automation, or probably
I will create a separate blog line for it.
