Not sure if this is a better fit for here or Off Topic. Please move if this is the wrong forum.
Anyway, we're doing a large remodel on a 50 year old house, and I'm wondering what the current best choices are for Home Automation - mostly re lighting and outlet control, but also want to learn what other goodies are possible. My current state of knowledge is X-10, which I'd guess is many generations obsolete. Thanks.
