Cool things you do with Vera Alerts

What are some of the coolest things you do with Vera Alerts?

I currently have it welcoming me when I come home and wishing me a pleasant sleeping experience when I get in bed. I’m working on having it give me trouble if I sleep in. I’m plumbing the audio throughout my house using small computer speakers. I’m using Z-Wave outlets connected to the speakers to turn them on and off to select which rooms get the announcements.

If/as people post a lot of great ideas I will update this first post with short descriptions and links.
