1.4. Wrapping Up

Congratulations on taking the first step towards an automated home! Now, before you spend hundreds of dollars automating every device in your house, live with the motion detector for a few days. Think about how you use it, and what annoys you about it. What do the other people in your household have to say about the new switch?
