C-Bus has a VR module that will do just that....or so the glossy brochure says.

I think it uses the Dragon Dictate VR engine to do the grunt work, but I have no idea how well it works.

BTW the way it knows when you want to give it a command, as opposed to the TV confunsing it, is you teach it a name that you prefix all the commands with, so you literally say COMPUTER.... LIGHTS OFF and apparently all the lights go off :roll:

Yeah Homeseer does it also and I played with it for a bit..never had plans to integrate it whole house or anything but might be handy in my office.

I think I'd feel like a real nerd if friends were over and I said "Computer..lights off" ....sorta like the nerds wearing bluetooth headsets in a loud nightclub yakking away thinking they are cool and everybody looking at them like they are talking to themselves until they realize they have a headset.

I also owned a bluetooth headset but would never wear it in public and used it at home only until I accidentally crushed it one day..I can see taxi drivers and some others having a definite use for them but the casual guy wearing one reminds me of people from back in the 80's that wore those am/fm radio headsets something like this and thought they were cool...something like the coolness of a big Motorola brick phone :-)

I have VR in my car, carputer. Works pretty good as long as the music is not too loud.

My freind had a Clarion AutoPC and it also had VR and worked well when the volume wasnt too loud.

Paul from sbsmarthomes has a neat VR system based on Homeseer using Genter mixers and I've heard a recording somewhere demonstrating him talking to his system..works pretty cool.

I think though that he also has like $1500 just in VR equipment, right?

The Genter mixers he has were used from Ebay.. I believe he uses Crown PCM mics and I don't think they are really cheap but then again I don't think one would expect to have reliable VR using $9.99 mics or the type you get free with a pc and usually throw away.
