Smart House - not just a Walt Disney fantasy anymore

He is able to obtain these results by simply creating a home that is smart about energy and gas usage. For example he has programmed his home to shut down lights in an entire zone of the house when not in use. Also his home is able to differentiate between an eventing out and a long vacation and change energy settings to best fit each situation.
