Missed this post Slychiu - thanks for posting it and noticing the Comfort bits!

For those that are interested, Comfort is the heart of a lot of the 'logic' that drives the house. Heating is via the Heatmiser interface (although Boiler is native Ethernet), lighting via both Lutron (via RS-232 interface) and CBus, plus switching the individual ring mains for each room (for power saving) is via Comfort triggering CBus relays that open contactors.

The comfort ethernet interface is behind a firewall with a VPN, so if outside of the house you have to VPN in before you can access the comfort interface.

I hope people found it interesting!
