I'm not sure I understand exactly what you are proposing. Most (possibly all) 
the home automation systems I'm aware of have IP control interfaces either by 
default or as an option, usually through a browser. The FR should be able to 
control those already via WiFi, and would probably be very good at it.

Or are you proposing adding a dongle to connect directly to one of the 
wireless home automation protocols like ZigBee or LonWorks?
