I had lunch with Craig Thomas today from Leo A Daly and he was congratulating me on my recent AU Online Tech Talk article.
Turns out Craig also got published this month. His article demonstrates how to associate a room sign outside of a room with the room itself. I am thinking he is on to something here that can be used in a lot of different ways. Any time you want to associate a thermostat or lighting control with a space that it is not actually in. Check his article out in the link above and let me know how you would use it.
