    I'm loving your house! Are you planning on doing details, or is it all personal?

    You can't see it in the pics, but the door to the Cell (that's what I call that particular bathroom) is a motorized stainless steel panel that goes up and down. It is much cooler in person than the pics show.

    I'm really a gadget person, and I love home automation. ... audio/video, HVAC, beverage center, tons of lighting, cord reels, hidden compressors, central vacuum, WiFi, etc have been installed. There are also sensors that will turn on overhead cameras output to a 55" monitor on the wall when I open the garage door to help me with a birds-eye view of my car so I can position it on the lift properly. Kind of a hi-tech version of the tennis ball on a string.

    The automation will monitor the garage at all times and will close the door if it doesn't detect motion for a programmed amount of time so I don't accidentally leave it open. There are also sensor for the water features and heaters in the adjacent courtyard and I can operate all functions including deadbolts and garage doors, HVAC controls, lighting, water features, gas heaters, audio/video, AppleTV, etc from my iPhone no matter where I am.

    I am so attached to my iPhone that I think I might need to seek professional help. It does everything for me. I can control every aspect of my home automation system from it no matter where in the world I am. I can watch my gardener on the cameras, get notification of and monitor packages that were delivered, alter the temperature in 11 multi-zones throughout the home, lock and unlock deadbolts, open and close blinds, verify that the security system is operating properly...just to name a few. The Control4 system has really changed my life. It's great to be able to turn up your Jacuzzi on my way home so it is piping hot when you get there.

    Automation is not something for lazy people, as many people think. It is just a way to simplify your life. It's great that the system "knows" to close the blinds in a particular room when the TV is turned on IF it is before sunset. It also closes blinds in rooms with West facing windows at certain times so I don't have to remember to do it. It raises them all back up at sunset.Little things like that are wonderful.

    Instead of waking up to an annoying alarm clock...the lighting in my bedroom slowly ramps up to a very bright level, the blinds raise, music plays through the speakers and gets increasingly louder. The temperature also changes to match my preferences for getting ready in the morning.

    I can also set certain announcements to play in certain rooms at certain times. For instance, if I have friends staying in the guest house...I can set announcements to let them know that breakfast will be ready at a certain time.

    All my outdoor lighting is set forever. No more having to re-do timers when daylight savings time occurs. All exterior lighting is based on latitude/longitude and sunrise/sunset times. It adjusts itself everyday so I don't have to even think about it. It knows to start the courtyard gas heaters in the morning if the outside temperature is below 60 so having your morning coffee outside is more pleasurable. It "knows" to turn on all the water features when the spa maintenance guy enters his gate code to service all the water features around the home.

    Home automation is becoming more affordable. It is not just for convenience anymore...it also helps to save energy.
