@tinym, keeping track of your utility usage is a good start!

Sorry to hear that Broadway

On smart houses...

When I read about a smart house I think of Mickey Mouse and his smart house that forced him out and of the Disney movie (live action) with the same name. I don't want to be a beta owner of such homes. I'll do well to stick with utilities monitoring.

I guess old charm comes at a price! Good luck getting the right door and closing up some of your drafty areas. A breeze way doesn't need to have an actual breeze blowing through!

This charming house may be for sale shortly, so let me know if you want to start devoting that TLC!

But those kinds of homes have so much charm -- worth the extra effort in my book

@Phoenix, both vendors I spoke with admitted that it's slow going to getting real estate owners, managers and developers to buy their products and systems. In part, it's because the space is already being flooded with vendors, with some vendors already going out of business because they didn't know what they were doing/didn't deliver on ROI. That said, for vendors with solid products and solid expertise -- like the two folks I spoke with -- there is tremendous upside.

@kickeko, actually still working on that storm door. We're waiting on one more contractor bid and then we'll order the door. Because we have an old weird house, our front door is not standard sizes and everything needs to be custom ordered and retrofitted in our overly tall doorway.

I've been to several LEED certified buildings recently that do exactly that Cordell - very cool indeed

Cool stuff Matthew.  When I think of green for new construction I usually think of more efficient windows, insulations etc.  What's capability for imbedding monitoring defices into the construction in the first place to drive the analytics from the beginning?  I'd like it already built into my new home rather than bolting something on.
