@William: Well if you are only focusing on the cost then it's a mistake. Cost is important especially right now but focusing only on it and making decisions is bad.

Those sound like good ideas to reduce cost, William K. I think you may be wrong that the concept is not rational, though, as it is a great idea that really makes sense. I'm sure there are ways to get the costs down if that's the only barrier to this being viable; it's such a great idea, in my opinion.

My point about cost is that probably anybody who could afford such a system could also afford to pay for a larger place. That much automation coupled with that level of controls is expensive. 

Now the"cool factor" is a different thing, because there are many who would pay any price for that aspect. And they would be happy to pay the price. BUT not me.
