Thinking Homes software extends Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 to include control of consumer electronics devices, such as TVs, DVD players, and amplifiers as well UPnP media. It also allows for control of devices such as lighting, cameras, HVAC, and security systems in a single control point for the entire house.
