I'd like to see an iPad run my HVAC system, office VOIP / paging / messaging, digital signage.
There are already several manufacturers that have thermostats that can be run by windows, ios, and android, The neat part is you can turn on your ac remotely before you get home on a hot day and have the house nice and cool by the time you arrive.

I have two of https://my.radiothermostat.com/filtrete/. One for each floor.

Another popular model is this http://www.nest.com/

I'm pretty sure there are apps already to do all that you have listed.
