Yes, and I'm having a very elaborate system put into my new home that is being constructed. The system is capable of some really sophisticated stuff even if the "layout," is non-customizable. That doesn't bother me that much because the system that they have in place is very intuitive. It's like if Apple created a home automation system.

The cool thing is if you pay for the at home software you don't have to pay some company to come install your new BD player or Receiver for instance. You can just plug it into your system yourself and add it with the software.

The sweet retro work is you can add their light switches and dimmers to your house without rewiring anything.

It was down to Crestron or Control4 for me and I just couldn't justify the extra cost for basically customizable interfaces.
