WAAAY OT, but....
Check out Dupline - it's a wired switch replacement system. I've been
trying to convince them to build a direct PC interface - the driver
would be very simple, it's just bitbanging on a couple of pins - but the
voltages are different. And it's rock reliable and cheap. It is made
for industry, but their modules could be used in a house for control....
