After debating getting back to the SR game I was looking over a bunch of my old posts here and saw that one of my later creations was missing. In the spirit of posting stupid stuff about normal life in SR I present my Central Home Nodeís (CHN). These were written specifically for 5th from what I remember.

Central Home Nodeís (CHN)

The Central Home Node is the digital heart of every apartment, house and condo in 2070. It acts as a personal assistant, butler and security system for the digital age. They control and protect the wireless devices in your home, monitor the property and in some cases take care of the elderly or children when business calls. CHNs create PANs in the same way that comlinks and cyberdecks do; in fact that is their main function. These are just base systems and many people add more sensors and gadgets or upload additional software.

Cost: How much you would pay for one and the cost to have it installed.

Device Rating: Used for Matrix Condition Monitor like Comlinks on some lower end CHNs. They are not as powerful as true hosts and CAN be bricked.
Attribute Array: Hosts have the same ASDF as a Cyberdeck. However most CHNs are mono-configured and cannot be reconfigured.
User Modes: Whether the CHN supports AR, Cold-Sim and/or Hot-Sim.

Like the idea, but a quick question: for Number of Program Slots, you have program/agent listed. If the agent has programs itself, does that count towards the total or is it considered a bundled deal?
