It would not do me any good with the shop being 80ft from the house. If it called my cell phone to tell me when it went off, then I would consider it.

No jokes, I do have a remote control system for my astronomical observatory that will do everything—- open the dome, slew to a star and synch the mount, slew to another star to focus, slew to the target and start taking images of any type(s) I determine, slew to another object and take images, slew back to the HOME position, close the dome, and then call my cell phone and send me a text message that all is done. Oh, and if something were to go wrong in the middle of the imaging session, it will call to tell me of that failure and to go out to the observatory and fix it.
