Hey, I have one of those kits.  Mucho fun & handy too.  I don't think the Japanese have any concept of proper insulation when they build houses, so my X10 turns on the heater next to the toilet 10 minutes before I get up every morning.  :-)  {no, they don't have central heat & air either}
I'm using the x10bot. {freshmeat is your friend!}
