Yes, I know this page of links is kind of lame, but at least the links are now working again! At least as of 12/4/99 anyway.
If you want to see what kind of stuff you can do yourself with home automation, check out "Mister House". If you are more into the X-10 side of home automation and like to tinker, check out the X10 HA Knowledge Base. The other sites are good for finding more links to the many good home automation web sites.
