Where to start?

Hi guys

I'm completely new to this home automation thing but I'm quite excited and I was wondering if you can give some pointers on where to start.

All I got now is a copy of "Smart Homes for Dummies" and some descriptions of the X-10 protocol. Maybe you can suggest a little project to start with. Nothing fancy just some ABC's.

Thanks a lot!

I reply to this topic because I have the same question as Bernardo. I apologize for my English: it is not goot at all.

I have an aparamentet with 4 rooms + kitchen + 2 bathrooms.

It is still under construction (floor and walls are already up); no lights, no switches, no outlets yet.

I'd like to control some lights, if possible the heating and I want audio in all rooms.

I the aparament where I live right now I have Windows Vista with a projector and I use Media center for tv + video + audio. I would like to integrate it with home automation.

Last thing: I live in Switzerland, so the standard may be different.

Thank you all for your support :o)
