Question Would you automate your house if.........

I know many of us, myself included, live in older homes. If I was building a house nowadays, I would have CAT 6 wiring everywhere, but in my 1988 built home, that is not to be, nor will it likely ever be due to the difficulty and cost of wiring such a house.

New technologies such as meshed networking might just allow all those in my situation to add full home automation merely by changing out all the light switches and adding control panels. I am seriously interested in this as a technology geek, but wonder if I am the only one. Granted these switches will cost alot more than the standard $1.99 Home Depot units, but am already agog about the technology and it will surely only get cheaper with time.

Would you do this to your home to add automation or is this something that doesn't interest you??
