There is no doubt that one of the next technological frontiers is home automation. The really big question is, once we can do everything we want to do, will it be done with a discrete panel or will it be an application developed for the PC. This article discusses home automation, what's available for the PC today, what we can do and what we can't.
I had reviewed the legacy version of ECS in August of 2000 and was asked to have a look at the redesigned Object-Oriented version (now at 2.2.51).

MisterHouse is the name of the open source program I wrote to do Home Automation (HA) chores at our house. It runs on Windows 95,98, NT, or any POSIX enabled Unix, like Linux. It can interact with a variety of serial port devices, including the X10 CM11 interface.
There needs to be further software written and easier to use front ends so that people like my wife, who don't want to learn complicated commands and setups, can basically point and click. Unix has all the tools needed to perform all of this and still keep the command line there for those who want more power. After the front ends have been added the next thing to work on will be redundancy. This is an area where most Home Automation systems are lacking.
"Controlling devices in the selected house code is easy but you must know the correct phrases to use. For example "Turn on Coach Lamp" commands the lamp on and "Shut off Coach Lamp" turns it off. "Set Coach Lamp to 75%" ... Brighten Coach Lamp by 10%" etc. Once you learn the key phrases you're all set and with proper training, the voice recognition is quite accurate."
Using any universal infrared remote control set to "Sony" control code, click the "VOLUME+" (move right), "VOLUME-" (move left), "CHANNEL+" (move up) and "CHANNEL-" (move down) keys in order to "move around" on the house map until the blinking cursor is on a device icon.
