Short take: Insane Complexity

Look, Ma, it's just a light switch...

Reminds me of the first time I went public with the prototype implementation of the zoning thermostat back in February 2002. The question I asked was, "What would be your questions if you saw this thing on the wall in the house you've just bought"? The first answer I got was, What the <censored> is that?

Honestly speaking, the situation hasn't improved much since :)

On the other hand, you've gotta give those designers credit for making something that complicated looking that simple.
