    Looks like you got a decent deal there.
    I'm not sure about the whole home automation thing. It is a great idea, I just wouldn't know how to pull it off.
    Good luck with it though.

    they have computer interface kits for T10 or something dont they? those pos pcs look really cool! maybe you could use relays and dmx for lighting like a stepper controlled relay board? and stepper motors for blinds

    Well being a POS system your likely locked into a specific hardware platform

    Have you looked at homedomination?

    of course it's mostly built around web cams and X-10 but you can have a lot of fun
    with a cheap USB controller like the usbmicro

    the 421 is an awesome platform that you can program - sensors etc...

    Looks like fun!
