Fair Enough - but it's just that the Home Easy range in particular might appeal to home automation DIY'ers since the codes for this range have been documented and built into some nifty projects involving hobbyist microcontrollers (i.e. Arduino). For example: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/HomeEasy (probably shoulda mentioned that in the OP!).
