I tried various other schemes to detect home or away status in my Indigo
based home automation system. Every other solution was unreliable at best.
The iAutomate RFID seems expensive at first but when you consider the cost
of remotes and keyfobs etc and look at the fact that this will trigger
scenes automatically with no user input, its a bargain. I think home
automation should be automatic with no input by the user and this makes it
possible for a welcome home scene. I bought the limited edition and it works
so well I am considering getting the multiple reader option for other areas
of my home as well.
