For folks like Barry Campbell, home automation systems are a dream come true. "I've daydreamed about hooking everything in my house up to a personal computer and controlling it from there for 20 years now," says the Raleigh, NC, resident. "I'm most interested in a smart system that could help reduce power usage, and I'm intrigued by the thought of getting lights and appliances — and possibly even a door lock — under remote monitoring and control. But until fairly recently, I've been disappointed with what was actually possible on a realistic budget."
