Bluetooth the next home automation standard?

I just read a brief article this afternoon that the bluetooth standard has been revised, revamped and ready to go after the home automation market. Could we have yet another new technology entering the market? Bluetooth makes sense for cellphones and cars but I know from my own experience that security is an issue. Lots and lots of people do not turn on security to their bluetooth devices. =)

The good part is they have more than a headstart as far as partnerships and widespread acceptance. The bad part is that it is relatively insecure and the cheapest bluetooth product I have purchased was a $79.99 headset for my cellphone. I say the more technologies the merrier.
