The Kwikset 910 CNT ZW (Z-Wave) is a door lock that can be integrated into your existing home automation network. I recently took the opportunity to own one of these deadbolts and integrated it into my Vera controlled network. It was a rough start, but so far it's looking like a good investment.
A little while back I picked up the GE 45602 Lamp Module, but it wasn't until recently that I needed to enlist its help in controlling the lights in our home. Our Home Automation system already operates with several other Z-Wave enabled devices.

I bought this Z Wave Home Controller (Gateway) as part of a Garage Door Conversion Kit from The Home Automation Store [site]. It was a pretty straightforward online shopping experience. One of the better carts I've seen for a Home Automation site, though the site appearance was a bit lacking.
Wayne Dalton makes a Z-Wave garage access kit. Why did I buy it? Because it compliments my Home Automation project. Is it worth it? I truely believe so.
