A little last minute advice
#11
Truely last minute advice: You might want to reconsider the height of mounting the Rad/IO panels. When I talked to them on the phone, they mentioned that mounting them at light-switch height was too low for most people to use comfortably.

I am planning on mounting all of the panels at 52" off the floor. My wife is only 5' tall so I couldn't go a whole lot higher than that.

That's what - 8 inches or so below eye level?

If it were me, I'd cut some construction paper to the size of a RadI/O panel, write some words or draw some fake buttons on it, tape it to the wall and ask her to read and play-tap it. Find the right height. 52" would be way to low for me, and probably even a bit low even for my wife. Kids on the other hand...

I actually did that. I worked up a little photoshop mockup and printed it out and taped it to the wall. Worked out pretty well, then I held the Q1 against the wall to simulate a bigger touchscreen to see how that worked out.

Its 52" to the bottom of the device, so that brings it up a little.
