The Information System acts as a set-top box which generates video signals to display a
graphical user interface (GUI) on a television. The GUI can be navigated by the user
through a remote control.

The Information System can communicate with X10 modules, therefore being capable of
turning lights and appliances around the home on and off.

The internal and external temperatures can also be displayed on the television screen.

Information System’s GUI.
