Hi everyone,

Just wanted to create a thread to initiate any discussions, questions, etc regarding the 2014 smart home since I couldn't find a specific forum to post...

Anyone notice what docking station was used in the master bedroom and for what phone it war for?! I personally always stuck with ihome docking stations for bedrooms, but may consider a change if this one was any good (and iphone compatible)... SWM

I noticed there were various different controls used for the smart home I.e. Toilet control, shower control, control4 and ADT... I think the toilet control is maybe a little OTT, the shower control was decent and maybe ok being separate to the main controls like control4 and ADT... However, control4 can do pretty much what ADT (and possible viseversa) can do, so is there any point to having them separate?! Anyone got any thoughts on the choice of home control for this smarthome?

I did not notice and smartphone docks, but sure there must be, Almost everything can be operated from any smart phone, or tablet. watch the video that tells about all the smart items in the home, very informative.

swmasson, go to the smarthome site here on HGTV, they have an a sundry of videos on the smarthome. Look for the one on the smart features, it gives a lot of interesting information on the smart devices used in the home.

In prizes, the house lists 3 1/2 baths. By my count there are 4 1/2 baths. Am I wrong?

4 1/2 one in the Master, one in the kids room, one shared by the guest room and the kids den, 1/2 bath in the entry area and the 4th in the basement. Quite often basements are not considered in the square feet so the one in the basement probably was not in the count when they were talking about the main living part of the house. It is great having the one in the basement as well as there are two sofa'a with beds down there plus another sofa in kids room with bed. They were sure looking at friends and family coming to visit. Wonderful! Smile
