Thanks, Dan.

When its on the wall I would have it wired, and that is when I would boot as a MD.  When it's off the wall, it would be running Windows over wi-fi.

I'm just looking at these things to plan all my wiring needs in the house I am building.  An in wall touch screen would be nice, but a multi-tasking touchscreen that I can also carry around as a tablet PC would be nicer.

Searched the forums but my question is can the Sahara Slate Tablet (i412T or i440T) PXE boot?

Sorry for the n00b question, but I am thinking about getting one of these wall-mounted with the quick release for the master bedroom so it would be the MD for the master bed and bath, but then I could also carry it around as an orbiter.  From my (limited) understanding: to be a MD it should PXE boot; a MD has an onscreen-orbiter; and Orbiter software can run on windows.  Or is it still a MD even though I can carry it around???

Why have you ruled out things like Z-wave and Insteon?

I just figured since it is new construction, it is not that much harder to run more cat5e everywhere and have the reliability of hard-wired.  I have read too many complaints about x10 and am not sold on any of the 'over power line' technology.  I been looking at Z-wave recently, and to see people are working hard to interface it with LMCE is a good thing.

I've been researching HA (and planning this house) since before LMCE split from Pluto and since I haven't touched a working system I change my mind about everything everyday.

Thanks Richard, that makes a lot more sense.  I'll be back with more asinine questions...

I'm looking for, and have been unable to find, IP light switches.  And more importantly, when I do find them, is LMCE going to be able to use them... that is if they exist...

Background: I'm currently building a house and starting the structured wiring in a couple of weeks, and have yet to install LMCE but I will when the house is finished and the core is built.  I think I do not want to use X10 or Zwave for my lighting because I think I want each light switch to have it's own rj45 port.  My google-fu is usually decent, but I am unable to find these devices...

If I am dense, tell me, but I would think this would be the ideal and best set up for my situation...
