we're looking to use our superseded devices as remotes, perhaps using an L5 remote IR add-on so they can communicate with house automation which has IR capabilities ...

the idea is to have them on a stand, on a table (say), and for them to be off most of the time, but for them to come-on automatically when someone enters the room, so they're ready & waiting to use to adjust the lights, heating, TV / hi-fi, whatever ...

the rooms will have PIRs already installed, so they might be able to provide the trigger, but how can we then communicate to the iPhone / iPod touch when they're off ?

connecting them via USB to a laptop brings them to life, so it's obviously possible to do it without touching them, without using the Power or Home buttons ...

any ideas, please ?
