Automating homes is one of the new rages today.
There are a lot of different things you can automate. Things like using keyless locks to easily give access to vacation units, waking to coffee that is already made, or controlling the temperature before you leave (how much would you save if your A/C was fully optimized?).
You are likely to want a number of In-Wall Remote Control Panels throughout the house.
These In-Wall transmitters can control groups of lights or execute complex lighting macros. With one touch, you can quickly adjust all the lights in a room to match the occasion or mood.
Plan these locations and have a hot and neutral wire run to a J-box at these locations.
Whole-House Surge Protection
Install a Whole-House Surge Suppressor to protect your electrical appliances and home entertainment products. If you are going to be using a significant number of powerline automation components in your home, adding just one whole-house surge protector will give you a good insurance policy against costly damage.

Work with the experts at Genesis Electrical Service to isolate non-automation loads. Having the kitchen and laundry appliances plus the heating systems on one phase of your electrical system will help keep potential noise off the automated system.
