I'm caught between buying two books on smart homes, namely "Smart Homes for Dummies" and "Complete Construction: Home Automation and Wiring". Basically, I want to get some background knowledge on what is available, be in a position to make informed purchases and then look to install the goods on a DIY basis (with the help of this forum of course!). Amazon do a deal on each book individually and for both. Has anyone read both these books and can recommend one over the other or am I better off getting both? I'm based in London, so I'm hoping they are not too US-centric. Ta.
