Hi All
I'm a newbie with all this home automation stuff and I was wondering if any of you guys can point me in the right direction.
Basically I have just moved in to a new home and I plan on installing a Vista media center server in the garage and then using a Xbox 360 as a media center extender in the living room for now, until a dedicated vista media center extender comes out, So the plan is to make most of the lights in the house automated and then controlled through the media center extender, but I dont know what software/automation protocol to use, I have been looking at HomeZix (seems nice and cheap) and Harmony for software and X10 or Zwave for hardware, but what PC interface can I use with either software, I will add more automated devices once I get to grips with it all, but I just need a bit of help getting started
