We are half way done. I am a bit careful to use an exclamation point —  we have gotten some things to work, but we still have a long way to go.

UPDATES

  1. Currently multisensor is logging data locally on blue Surface Pro and Kinect is also collecting people counts locally on Surface Pro 2.
  2. Cannot install Z-wave Driver for Surface Pro 2
  3. Cannot install Kinect Driver for Asus laptop
  4. HP tablet has USB 3.0 port (for Kinect) and USB 2.0 ports (for Z-wave dongle) so unless there are issues with installing software for HomeOS, it should be good to go
