The RFID starter kit and the Indigo plugin make my home automation system far more powerful. I am now able to test for RFID tags on my cars, trash cans, pets, etc. Really loving it so far and I've only had it for a few weeks!

The product is pretty complex, but the manual is really well written and if you take the time to read the manual and place the reader, the results are amazing.
I can now trigger actions when family members arrive, and just as important, I can prevent triggers from occuring when I am not home! It's really cool to see the garage door open automatically and have the lights turn on when my car first pulls in the driveway. I was rather worried about the wife accepting this, but now she want to take it over ?? WTH ?
She put tags on the kids' backpacks so we know when they get home from school.
