I have a dream

My sweetest dream for the last few years (of a technological kind, at least) was to have a full-blown home automation system. I want to be able to check my email, read news, program a DVR, AC or coffeemaker, and to control a security system, lights, music, etc. from any room in the house. And I want things happening automagically without me wasting my precious time. I want technology to deliver on its decades-old promises already!

Although this all sounds quite feasible there is one big “but” if you consider implementing it with the current state of things. To administer the system of this complexity will be a full-time job. And to become a servant of my own home automation system would be the biggest joke of all times!
