I have been a user of the great HouseBot home automation software for a long time now, and for years I have been meaning to showcase my set-up. I just never seemed to have the time; same could be said about a large number of projects I have planned! In fact the post over on the housebot forums took a number of weeks to complete!
HouseBot is a fantastic piece of software. It still amazes me that it has not really changed much since the Meedio days, but I feel the application still does out-perform many of the current home automation software out now. I feel this is mainly down to the stability and the expandability of the plugin framework and the powerful scripting. However, I have been tempted to switch to HomeSeer with its huge amount of plugins available. But the $600 price tag and the amount of time invested in HouseBot makes me stay here.
