November Contest Winner:
Michele Wesley and Family

Unlike some of the previous INSTEON Sweepstakes winners, Michele Wesley is just getting started with home automation. As she is currently in the process of finishing the basement of her family's home, this win couldn't have come at a more perfect time.

How did you start to think about home automation?
I was looking around to see if there was a way to have our plug-in lights in the basement connected to some kind of switch upstairs and downstairs when I came across your website.

Describe the setup in your home
Right now we don't have a setup, but we have the guest bedroom in the basement that we are finishing. There are several lights but nothing convenient - everything has to be plugged in to be on or unplugged to turn off. We also have our laundry down there, and the light is not connected to a switch either. The only switch is at the bottom of the stairs, so you have to walk down in the dark. Hopefully with your products we will be able to fix this.
What attracted you to the INSTEON technology?
It seemed to be the most simple, cost-effective solution for our needs.

What will be your first INSTEON project?
Our first project will be the basement and the lights closest to the bed for our guests' convenience.

What products would you love to see join the INSTEON family?
This is a tough one since I'm not really sure what all is already available. Maybe to be able to control my thermostat from a remote location would me nice. Besides that I can't really think of anything.
