Home automation

Here is one fellow's state of home automation control about 10 years ago!

I started with the X-10 standalone controller in about 1986. It was even before I owned an IBM PC, so I had to take the controller with me to work when I wanted to modify the standing program to control front and back porch lights, lamps scattered about my bachelor pad to make it look lived in when I was away. Here is what the humble CP-290 controller looked and looks like.

I still own it, but haven't run it in several years. Maybe it is about time to dust off the device.
