A Geek's Christmas In July : A few tech goodies arrive early for the Jeff Click Homes Parade Home

By

If we're all honest with ourselves, there has been at least one occasion in our lives when something special was to be arriving in the mail. It usually takes place some time during childhood, and for me, it was a new skateboard I'd earned by winning a Christmas card selling contest in grade school. But even as adults, with the changes in how we make purchases online, some of us still caught up in the excitement of looking out the window every three minutes to see if the UPS guy has arrived.

I recently succumbed to the temptation of waiting with anticipation for Mr. UPS Guy. While I didn't scream like a school girl, I did probably rival the giddiness of a certain beloved man I won't mention when my latest gadget arrived: the OmniPro II integrated home control system that Home Automation Inc. has donated for Jeff Click Homes' 2008 Parade Of Homes entry.

We're just weeks away from completion, and while the infrastructure for all of the technological amenities was built and pre-wired in it months ago, the fun is about to begin, as we install everything from this system, to the several zones of audio, five plasma TVs, and numerous other geek surprises.

For you fellow geeks out there, we took a few snapshots of the un-boxing of God's gift to home technology. I give you the OmniPro II...
