bulletRemote connectivity
bulletUse the same interface as on your server from any Windows 95+ machine in your house.  Or around the world.  Uses standard internet connectivity to your server. Why use a clumsy web page interface when you can interact with your floorplan in real-time.
bulletUse a slightly modified interface (same floorplans) on your Windows CE and PocketPC devices around your house, on in your briefcase. Many WinCE web appliances can install extra software.  Install, connect to the internet and go!
bulletWe still have the regular web (HTML) interface.
bulletChat/ Intercom -- The different messenger services are fine.  But Home Automation really needs something different.  Do you want to send a message to a person? Or a location?  Or broadcast it everywhere?  And it needs to be private.  From the kitchen, send "Dinner's Ready" around the house.  Send a quick message to your spouse, wherever they're logged in...
