    So I've been thinking and doing a little digging around on the google machine.

    I want a lot of my flat to be voice controlled. Watching Iron Man and the "Jarvis" style alarm clock got me thinking.

    So I googled and found a Jarvis Alarm clock for windows which needs some work and is still in an early phase. Then I got thinking even more.

    I drive a BMW 5 Series with iDrive. It responds to virtually any pre defined voice command.

    Is there something like this available for the home? Prime it by saying a name or pressing a button then giving a voice command?

    AMX have a voice control interface IIRC which can be programmed to do pretty much anything with an AMX system
