  1. The Nest is decent in some aspects, but I would rather have a home automation system that doesn’t invade my privacy like the Webee http://igg.me/at/webee-smart-home-automation/x/5944165 or the EmoSPARK http://igg.me/at/emospark/x/5944165

  2. Why not use zigbee’s for placing sensors around the place? Run off rechargeable batteries and no need to have an rpi or arduino hooked to every sensor. Simply read sensor data from a central location….
