  1. Great For Presence Detection 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Apr 2014

    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.
