Here’s an example of Apple’s Siri being used to totally control a home environment — from heating to lighting to home entertainment.

We are really not that far away from being able to do the equivalent of Star Trek’s “COMPUTER: LIGHTS” commands. This real working example (covered in Mashable) uses some Creston AMS-AIP home automation equipment with an intermediary proxy server to handle the connectivity to Siri.
How long before Apple release a fully approved, fully managed home automation/API product/service?
How long before folk will be buying houses and asking if it’s Siri-compatible? 😉
