Home Automation Experience

I have been staying at a very upmarket hotel for a few days (The Peninsula, Hong Kong) so I was keen to try out some of the features.

This is me watching TV while having a bath!
You don’t have to worry about dropping the remote in the water. . . . its all contained in this waterproof touch panel along with a phone, radio and light intensity.

Around the bedroom there are a couple of pad controllers like this:

One place to control:

  • Lights
  • TV / Audio
  • Curtains
  • Air conditioning


Well it was very pleasant to have the convenience. . . . . but I don’t think I could justify the thousands of dollars it must have cost to integrate all these functions.
