Love the home automation.

Did you develop the home automation plan yourself, or did you have Control4 or another company design it for you? Do you have any sites or forums that you used to help learn about setting it up?

I look forward to seeing how this project turns out. Subscribed!!

It's really no where near as pricey as it used to be. With most of the components being wireless...it saves a ton of labor costs.

For the entire house the automation budget is at about $42K so far and should just hit a touch over $50K when finished.

No drain in the garage. I have a CR Spotless water treatment system installed that feeds directly to one of the hose bibs right outside the garage for washing...and there are drains out there. I don't want the car washed IN the garage because it would just make a mess. When you see what my cabinet doors look like...you will see why! ;-)

Sort of a combination I guess. I am using an AMAZING company (integratedaz.com) to do all the work, and the owner of the company happens to be extremely passionate about what he does, but is also very knowledgable in the system and all it's inner workings so he is willing to listen to all the crazy ideas I come up with and then he figures out how to make them work.

Wow, that is very impressive! What happens when your garage becomes self-aware due to all that automation and tries to kill you and/or take over the world? Very nice build.

Been away for a little while, but got back the other day and took a few more pics. They have all the lights in now and most of the ceiling mounted stuff. Disregard the big beam of wood holding up the garage door opener motor. That's just temporary so we can continue to have a powered door until the new door and side mounted motor get installed next week.

The cabinet guy got some work done today so now I don't have to look at that nasty HWH. The electrician installed the LED lights in the cabinet over the TV/work bench (which gets delivered tomorrow) He also hooked up the powered vent flaps so I can open and close them depending on the season.

That is a badass & beautiful setup you have going there...

My only question... You live in Long Beach.. AKA HOT climate, yes? Why would you put your server cabinet in the garage, where it can get over 100 degrees? Is your garage air conditioned? I just see 80tb of storage along with the switches & everything else generating alot of heat..

Although it has hit 100 a few times in the 15 years I have lived here...85 is the highest average temp that we get here in Long Beach. And yes...the garage is Air conditioned. There is only a small server cabinet in the garage; which houses just a punchdown, a POE Gig switch, and Iso-boot bar and a few other low heat automation components. All the main servers and storage is in the server room upstairs.

Are the red pressure tanks something related to a fire sprinkler system?

First off, very cool!

Secondly, could you explain your compressor setup in a little more detail. I'm slightly confused.

Yes. there are 4 of them in total. Only two are installed right now because the new garage door gets installed today. I got them from Griots Garage.
