I didn’t go crazy on home automation, but with Roomie (or Niles IR repeater) which is a great competitor to Control 4, I’m guessing internet (IP) controlled function will get better and better.
Lutron just came out with Caseta dimmers, good on both Halogen and LED, which can be controlled with the $125 smart bridge. I haven’t installed this, but hear good things. Supposedly, multiple “scene” controls, while Lutron Maestro has one. The previous Lutron “Spacer” system was much more versatile.
I put in 5 lighting zones and love it. 21 lights in total. I put in LED’s for the most part, but in front I used Halogen, because they dim much nicer.
4 - Sconces,
6 - General lights” 6” can (2 up front and 4 in the back, separate dimmers)
9- 4” cans around the perimeter (2 up front and 7 around the side/ back, separate dimmers)
2- step lights with 1.5 volt LEDs
