MAKE SURE EVERYTHING IS SET JUST SO when you return to an unoccupied house.  By setting up a multi-button controller right next to the garage door opener button, you can easily turn on any light or module that you want operational when you return home.  Set up one of the buttons to send out a UPB link that turns on all desired lights and appliances.  Program a second button to turn everything off when you leave home (see the Away Scene Killer Applet for more information).  If you want your house to look lived in when you are gone, use a TIM-01 timer to set up timed programs that you want to run only when the house is not occupied.  Add a trigger to the TIM-01 to enable this timed program and another trigger to suspend the timed program.  Now when the multi-button is used to send a link to indicate that the house is occupied again, have that same link trigger the timer to suspend the lived-in look program so lights will not automatically come on when you are home.

By adding a TU-16 UPB thermostat, you can also turn the heat down (or air up) whenever you leave the house and return to the appropriate time-of-day program when you return.  If you want to turn the heat up (or air down) an hour or more before you return home so the house is comfortable when you arrive, use a NetPlace server or other UPB controller that can be accessed from a web-phone.

Home Scene

If you are lighting up the house when you arrive home and push the Home Scene button, consider using a trigger on the TIM-01 to turn off no longer needed lights (like in the garage) 5 or 10 minutes after you return.
