Turning a Mac Classic or SE30 into a home hub

Recommended Posts

Forget HomeKit!  Its 1992 in my house!  That means VCR and LaserDisc, Panasonic Cordless Landline Phones, Sony Trinitron TVs, Light blue countertops, Black and white checkered bathroom tile and..... a Macintosh SE/30 controlling everything in the home via X-10.  That's right, not only does the SE/30 act as the AppleTalk server for the 2 IIgs computers in the kids' rooms, its also a home control center! Want to know how its all done?  Check this out then! https://www.ebay.com/itm/Macintosh-Version-POWERHOUSE-X-10-HOME-AUTOMATION-CONTROL-RARE-Mac/192955684549?epid=1091814573&hash=item2ced0e16c5:g:H88AAOSw8EhdCabB


PS.  I don't actually have kids, own an SE/30, IIgs, or a house (I rent).  My apartment is actually frozen in time decorum-wise in 1975 with bright orange countertops, an olive-green dishwasher and wood paneling walls in the bedroom.  I just thought this would be a really cool compact mac related item to show you guys.
