The bank finally stopped putting up new hurdles for us and we have the house free and clear at last. It is not really ready to live in and will not be for about a month if all goes well enough. We are going to have to have a good bit of work done and I am going to redo the kitchen myself. This guy I know is going to install a really nice adt home security system for me. He and I were in the Marine Corps together during the Second Gulf War and he helped me find me a good job when I got out of the Corps about ten years ago. It is a long time we have known each other and he is going to fix me up with more than just a home security system. Instead it is going to be a true home automation system which is going to do all sorts of things.
Of course you can extrapolate that stuff until you think about how a really rich person could make a house that was almost like a living organism.At least there is no reason that the house could not recognize who you are and who you want to let in the house. You would not even need a key if the house knew to let you and knew who to keep out, anyone who you did not let into the house. It could let someone in to fix the sink and then keep an eye on him as well. Of course you could do that with a smart phone app as well I suppose. This system is going to come with one of those, although I would have to play with it before I will know what it does and does not do.
