Lots of choices, but unless you have deep pockets expect to invest a LOT of your spare time and have some growing pains along the way.
Sort of kills a major benefit of automation
I'll stick to programmable thermostats and light switches.
Sounds like what I found out when I started to do research a few years ago when I was remodeling my house. I only opted for a Proliphix thermostat, which I can control from the internet, but nothing more at this point. If I ever build a house I want to integrate home automation, but for now in my 1961 house I didn't feel like it was worth messing with.
