HomeHub automation beta

One area of tech I haven't yet explored is Home Automation. Luckily, someone I know has, so I can let him spend the money! ;) Paul has just signed up for the HomeHub beta, so be sure to watch his experience at Paul's Blog. Paul is a big "home automation" fan and I think it's amazing that he can be anywhere the world and still turn lights on at his house or find out the indoor temparature!

"With HomeHub, you'll be able to control your lighting, appliances, security cameras and entertainment systems through a range of devices whether you're at home or anywhere else in the world. Which is pretty cool, 'cause how many times have you wanted to change the channel on someone, or have left your curling iron on and wanted to turn it off. OK, maybe that's a little far-fetched, but not impossible!
HomeHub is designed to allow all levels of Home Automation user to create and control an automated home based around existing standards and technologies using devices that are available today. You can control your house through one easy to use browser based interface, from any computer on your home network, or from other networked devices such as wireless PDA’s and from the TV using a 'suitable adaptor.'"

Kevin,

Its good to see your interest in HomeHub, although I'll admit that the cost of buying kit also put me off for a while. But $40 and a trip to the hardware store got me some nice stuff. So at least now I can save the world from global warming when I forget to turn off the AC when I rush out to the airport!

Give it a go when you get a moment - its really easy to use.
