I am back from a couple of great week-long vacations and while I was gone Windows Home Server, with the mControl Add-In, has been watching over our home. Windows Home Server controlled two lights I connected so easily I decided to add additional modules for another light and my surround sound speakers.
WHS currently controls all of my files, photos and videos. In addition, WHS also controls my other computers, backs itself up, monitors it own power source, could shut itself down if needed and even send text messages to me when it needs attention. What else could it possibly do? Well I have decided that I am going to take the next step with Windows Home Server and give it control over my home.
