Kinect For Home Automation Makes A Lot Of Sense

Using Kinect to detect where you are in a room so that your home automation can turn off the lights in the parts where you are not makes a lot of sense. Regular motion cameras can do this now, but Kinect can do this better, since it knows what constitutes a "person" and can adjust accordingly so you're not sitting in the dark for no good reason.
