Looks cool but I wouldn't want to depend on it. Wi-Fi or power outage? Bad idea IMO, see comment section.

Works on Bluetooth as well :)

I know there are if buts and maybe's, but as of right now it's pretty awesome!

Electrician. So you should totally geek out with Zwave. At least you don't run the risk of getting shock treatment when changing out your dimmers. Me on the other hand... :eek:
I'm a HVAC Engineer. I'll PM you my company. I basically do BMS (building management systems) controls for buildings. Including security set/un-set, lighting, heating, ventilation and any form of controls. Z Wave does look cool, but I could wire they systems my guys install in buildings, exchanges and have the same form of control. Admittedly my controls are mainly for BEMS (building energy management), focusing on energy saving, it's fundamentally the same thing.

Whoa, would you PM me a company, too?! I prefer a tech company, but anything profitable will do if it's free. :D
