That's reasonably close. Any familiarity with the home automation aspects specifically?
I've played a little with X10 and havn't had much success. No fault of LMCE. Interference on my power lines?? I suspect my new furnace with it's DC vari-speed drive is causing noise/interference on my electrical lines. I have more investigating to do but my initial thoughts are to use something more reliable and to stay away from X10. I have yet to pick up any Insteon or Zwave to test but I do plan on it in the near future.
