    I have integrated HAL 2000 throughout my apartment. Voice technology is not perfect, that you must understand. For instance, loud background noise such the TV can interfere considerably.

    For me, the benefit far outweighed any of the challenges that I had to overcome in setting up HAL 2000.

    HAL 2000 is a considerable expense. As far as home automation goes it is relatively inexpensive. For the do-it-yourself people it is great. However, if you're looking for something that is easy to set up you may find it a bit over your head.
