Yup. I would something more serious from Fraunhofer institute. Several companies already have similar products. Eg Belkin WeMo.

There are some commercially available products available similar to this. For example: SmartLinc from Smarthome. Refer the link below: http://www.smarthome.com/2412N/SmartLinc-INSTEON-Central-Controller/p.aspx HexaBus looks quite similar to SmartLinc, except that HexaBus uses IPv6 protocol, probably has more security features and has USB router? How do the costs compare?
