I just joined up and also just purchased the Control your Home Kit about 10 minutes ago from the online store. Been wanting to automate my home for years, and saw this as an opportunity to give it a try. I also have a Filtrete Wireless Thermostat controller I bought a couple years ago at HD and never installed it. I am hoping to use this with the new purchase.
I also just wanted to chime in as a noob as well.
