Planning for the new home and remodeling options are covered. Practical tips tell you exactly what components are needed for various levels of automation, including what it will cost and how to stretch your budget.
There are enticing hints about technology to come, how to prepare for it now and what is worth waiting for. Specific brand name products now on the market are analyzed with warnings about conflicting standards.
For more in depth study of specific topics there are lists of web resources and print publications. This book will help you understand what is available in home automation and how to make it a reality in your own home.
The big vision outlined in this book is simplicity afforded by thinking ahead. Save money and space by designing a network which accesses one main computer server; one digital TV; one VCR; one CD player; one radio; one internet or cable service line for multiple users within the home or business. All these media sources are routed via cables, modulators, preamplifiers and switch panels to each room so that users can choose what they want to play on their computer, speakers and video screens. They inform the reader about 'multi-zone' or multiple channel receiving and transmitting devices needed to to push your wired house to full capacity now and in the future. Costs, esthetics, and how to anticipate future technologies are considered. This book is a pleasant read and a fast way to get up to speed on how to 'Get to Wired'. Think of it like an adventure tour of networking wonderland by Bill and Ted. At the same time this is a most excellent (easy to use) source of reference tables for those of us who prefer to bypass the 'Bill sheet' and get something done.
The book explains all the reasons why equipping your house with smart technology makes sense and then makes a compelling argument on the economics of the venture -- the return on investment is exceptional.
The book also presents the information in clear concise language and de-mystifies the jargon. You'll be able to talk to contractors with confidence in their language and you'll save money by buying your own wire -- the book tells you exactly what you need. My contractor told me upfront that he'd tack on 10 percent to the price of the wire as 'book-keeping' cost. So when I bought my first crate of CAT5, the book had already paid for itself.
Only one thing would have made this book better -- instructions or advice on how to actually physically install the wire (which is hard to find anywhere). I hired a contractor, and even though I'm satisfied that I got value from the project, I could have saved more if I'd done it myself.
In anycase, nice work guys.
This book does a really good job describing the basics of many different concepts in home automation and networking. I felt that it concentrated a lot on building a new smart house, rather than installing the technology in an existing home.
If you are interested in learning about automated homes, get this book. If you are already know the basics of home automation, borrow this book. If you are a "smart home" enthusiest who has already completed some automation projects and want's a detailed guide for your next one, look elsewhere.
