$80,000 For Making An iPad Controlled Home-Automation System
A California based self-proclaimed Apple-Fanboy, Savan Kotecha, spent $80,000 on his 24,000 sq.ft home to make it a home-automation system which can be controlled by Apple’s leading tablet. The 34-year old is a song writer and vocal producer on the popular singing show “The X Factor” and is a big Apple-lover which led him to spend this fortune but he seems to be happy with it.
Here is what he said,
“It was totally worth it.”
Kotecha can now control things in his house like the shades, lights, music, and even security cameras to let him monitor his house while he is away. And for that, he uses Crestron’s home-automation app which is available on iTunes for a hefty $99.99(there is also a free version though). Now that may sound futuristic and 007-like but believe it, Savan Kotecha has made it possible.
So what do you think, will you spend that much for the luxuries of controlling your home from a mobile device or not?
